  • Link from a vBulletin post to a web page that blocks access to non vBulletin users?

    I want to provide a link from a vBulletin post to a page on an external website (eg http://www.abc.com/secure) that can only be accessed if it is being accessed from vBulletin.

    In other words, if anyone types http://www.abc.com/secure in the address bar they will NOT be able to access that webpage.

    Can anyone provide any suggestions on how to easily do this?

    What sort of HTML/JavaScript coding would be required in the thread?
    Thanks.

    Not really possible unless your page uses vbulletin's permisisons system.

    Referrers can be faked.

      I thought I'd be able to POST a parameter from the thread (in HTML/JavaScript code) and then check for the parameter in the Target HTML web page and block access to the web page if the posted parameter is NOT ok.

      See:

      Would this be possible?

        It won't be secure at all. POST can be faked too.
