Hotlink Protection


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.


If you have another domain, add an embedded image from the hotlink protected site. Use the full URL in the example below:


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


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:


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



Looks like it’s working!
