  • How do I block hotlinking to my attachments on other sites?

    I have attachments turned on, and I'd like to prevent my forum from becoming personal hosting space for the world, if you get my idea.

    Is there a way to prevent my attachments from showing up in anywhere other than my forum?

    Thanks as always.

    I don't know of a way to restrict vBulletin's attachments by referrer (the site that is doing the linking).

    One easy way to prevent remote linking is to disable attachment viewing privs for guests. However, this will also prevents guests on your site from viewing attachments:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Can Download Attachments

    Set this to No.

      Thanks again. I searched after I posted it (clearly the wrong way to do things) and found a post that linked to an app that would do it, but this should be fine enough anyhow.

      Thanks again.
