Hotlink Protection


#1

Hi, I’ve activated Hotlink Protection in the Scrape Shield section, to avoid hotlinking. But how can I know if this protection has had effect? :thinking: Since I have tried some web that offer test on the subject and the image is still accessible. :frowning_face:

It only works against requests coming from other sites. Individuals would still have access.

In other words, HTTP Referers that are not in-zone and not blank will be denied access. Supported file extensions are gif, ico, jpg, jpeg, and png.


#3

If you have another domain, add an embedded image from the hotlink protected site. Use the full URL in the example below:
https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_images.asp

Thank you very much for your response.
But it does not have another domain. :frowning_face:


#5

If you post the URL of an image, I can test it out. In fact, that might even be enough to test it out right here. Like: https://example.com/images/happy.jpg


#6

I want to see if my hotlink protection works or not here.

Looks like it’s working!
