    In WordPress is there a way to stop other sites from using my bandwidth by embedding my images in their blogs? It's causing bandwidth issues for me.

    I solved this. It's a hotlinking images issue.

    To prevent image hotlinking some scripting needs to be added to the .htaccess file for the wordpress site.

    You can find the generator at http://www.htaccesstools.com/hotlink-protection/

    Here's the tip. Paste the result onto the last line of the existing .htaccess file.
