    Finally. One of my members checked it out using Norton and all images show as they should. Glad to finally have this issue resolved. Thank you Zachery for your help.

    Okay...now I'm starting to get it. I'm hosted with Site5 and I login through NetAdmin. Apparently hotlinking protection was enabled by default. I've turned it off, at least for now...so would appreciate it if any of you using Norton could take another look and see if the images on my forum show up again now.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Well when you login to your hosting providers website does it say cpanel or ensim or plesk somewhere?

    Zachery,
    That is what is so perplexing about this. I have never knowingly enabled hot-linking and am not even sure what it is. That is why I'm having a hard time figuring all this out.

    Are you using cpanel or did you enable hotlink protection another way?

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to do that. This is what I have been trying to find out. I appreciate your responses and hopefully somebody will know how to do it.

    Hmm, to be honest I am not 100%, could you disable hotlinking protection for the time being?

    Scott says "Actually yes its hotlinking protection I just remembered.

    HTTP_REFERRER is stripped when Norton is enabled and thats whats used for hotlinking detection.

    You really need to allow blank referrer or referrer == your domain"

    What I'm asking is, HOW do I allow blank referrer on my domain?

    You are using hotlinking protection correct?

    As scott posted in post 30 you may need to disable that

    Uh...I DON'T use Norton. It's a sad fact though that many people do. It's hard to convince the rest of the world not to use it.

    Confirmed now.

    I get an error when I view it normally, if I then edit the headers and add

    Code:
    Referer: http://www.venturerider.org/
    I can view the image steve mentioned
