    Is it possible with the hotlink feature in cp to also protect against mp3 file types? If not does anyone have a script that can be loaded into the htaccess file that can do this?

    Hotlink will block any file. All you need to do is add the extension to the list.

    I've been trying to get (on behalf of a client) hotlink protection working.

    It seems to work perfectly if the image is on the root of the site. However if its in, for example /images/ it doesn't deny it and just allows access like normal.

    Anyone else seeing this/ is it a bug/ am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks,
    Andy.
