Hello, I have a problem with some images on my website. Some images are changed with another image saying “this image was hotlinked”, even if the images are hosted on my server. Sometimes if I clear the Cloudflare cache the problem is immediately solved, some other times, it takes a little bit more. However, I don’t understand why this happens. The Cloudflare hotlink protection is disabled.
Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:
- Double-check your server-side settings to ensure there’s no hotlink protection implemented that may be conflicting with Cloudflare. Check your .htaccess (for Apache) or server blocks (for NGINX) for any hotlink prevention rules.
- Clear your browser cache or try accessing your website through a different browser, as sometimes cache from your local machine may cause this issue.
- If the issue persists, it’s possible that there’s an issue with your website’s code or a plugin. Disable any image optimization plugins (if you’re using any) and test your website again.
In any case, as presented, this doesn’t seem to be a Cloudflare issue, but I hope you can solve it by following the steps presented above.
