    :confused:

    Here's a good mystery for you. I enabled Hotlink Protection on my site. I have my default domain info in the box "URLs to Allow Access" and I have the default "jpg,jpeg,gif,png,bmp" file extensions in the "Extensions to allow" box. Here is my dilemma. When I go to view my own site on my computer, the pages come up fine, but I can't view any of my graphics. When I talk to other ppl, they say they can view the whole site just fine.

    Why do you think I can't see the graphics on my computer when I have Hotlink Protection activated. I've tried refreshing the browser, clearing the cache, etc. When I disable the Hotlink Protection, I can view the site again.

    Any ideas on how I can have it enabled and still be able to see my own site??

    Hope someone can help. Thanks.

    Do you have your URL listed with and without www?

    yes: http://wwww.domain, and http://domain

    Funny thing though. I just set up a client site using the exact same process (on same server) and it works fine and I can see the site too. Must have gremlins in my site.
