Preventing Hotlinking...??
« on: November 21, 2004, 10:02:25 am »

I read the FAQ of coppermine and accordingly made the following .htaccess file:

SetEnvIfNoCase Referer "^http://www.domian.com/cpg/" locally_linked=1
SetEnvIfNoCase Referer "^http://domain.com/cpg" locally_linked=1
SetEnvIf Referer "^$" locally_linked=1
<FilesMatch "\.(gif|png|jpe?g)$">
  Order Allow,Deny
  Allow from env=locally_linked
</FilesMatch>

As per the instruction the file was uploaded to my albums folder!
Now the big problem is, all the thumbnails on the mail page are itself blocked!
I hovered my mouse and found that they are using full paths,
i.e. http://www.domain.com/cpg/albums/fil.jpg

How to modify so that CPG script uses the local reference, i.e. all img src should be local links, like: /cgp/albums/file.jpg ?? instead of the complete path?

Or is there some other way around to prevent hotlinking?

Note: Here 'domain' is the name of my website! And i am not disclosing so as to prevent any further hotlinking!!

post the actual content of the .htaccess file with the actual domain name, so we can check.

This is my exact .htaccess file in the albums folder

Code: [Select]
SetEnvIfNoCase Referer "^http://www.indianguitartabs.com/igtalbum"

locally_linked=1
SetEnvIfNoCase Referer "^http://indianguitartabs.com/igtalbum"

locally_linked=1
SetEnvIf Referer "^$" locally_linked=1
<FilesMatch "\.(gif|png|jpe?g)$">
  Order Allow,Deny
  Allow from env=locally_linked
</FilesMatch>

On the main page, when i hover my mouse, i see that it shows the complete link, i.e.
http://www.indianguitartabs.com/igtalbum/albums/file.jpg  in the <img src>, so tat means its not locally linking, so all the images goes blank!

Update: I have now added two common hacks for nohover and rightclick disable!!

Have you tried this hotlink method?
