I enabled HotLink Protection on my cPanel to prevent people fr. linking directly to my hosted images. I notice that by default it added the new data into an .htaccess file located in my public_html folder. But my blog is installed in a subdirectory.
I just checked my last 300 referrals & there are still images being directly linked to. So I’m guessing that the HotLink rules should be in the .htaccess file located in my subdirectory. Is that so?
If yes, I already have mod_rewrite rules in that .htaccess file that govern WP related permalink redirection. So I don’t want to mess with those rules. Should I insert the HotLink rules after the WordPress ‘End’ portion of the file?
