Enable Hotlink Protection for one image


How can i create a custom firewall rule that would enable the use of a specific image file to be loaded only when used by our website?

The Hotlink Protection in Scrape Shield does the opposite, it disables all images from Hot Linking. While it does offer specific images to be ruled out from Hot Linking (by using a /hotlink-ok folder) its not practical for us since we have thousands of images in various folders.


Give this Firewall Rule a try. It checks for a match for that image URL, and if the referrer is NOT your domain. Then Block.


yes that worked.

But instead of URI path i used URI Full with our subdomain containing all the images. (actually we wanted several Not Hot-linked).
