    What up people!

    Does anyone know the proper hotlinking code snippet to place into your htaccess file?

    Any other codes that prevent scrapers and image thefts that work well?

    There are none to prevent thefts, hotlinking prevention works because it’s not theft. It’s not borrowing. It’s just pointing people to your own images.

    #disable hotlinking of images with forbidden or custom image option
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?yourdomain.com [NC]
    RewriteRule \.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif)$ – [NC,F,L]

    Would this work for hotlinking?
