I have it enabled to where you can't direct link, but if it's enabled, then a lot of visitors to my site can no longer see any images on my site. The only way it doesn't do that is if its disabled, if I allow direct requests (which is basically disabling), or if I change the allowed extentions from (jpg,jpeg,gif,png,bmp), to (.jpg,.jpeg,.gif,.png,.bmp) with periods in front of them..which also makes direct linking available. I tried editing the .htaccess file and all it does is change the hotlink protect section to all the settings I just mentioned. Is there no way of fixing this? I just have to let people steal my bw?
