My webhost asked me to add hotlink protection via htaccess to track down some CPU hogging.
My blog’s URL is mydomain.com/blog
I used this online tool to generate the htaccess code: http://www.htaccesstools.com/hotlink-protection/
When I entered the URL, I entered it exactly as it is above. Is that correct? Also, does it matter where in the htaccess file the code is placed? I have it placed at the end of the file.
It is preceded by the WP-Super Cache htaccess code, and then the standard WP permalinks code. After those two I added the hotlink code.
When testing it on this page: http://www.htaccesstools.com/test-hotlink-protection/
It doesn’t seem to be working.
I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I use htaccess in other non-WP areas of my site and it works OK (for 301 redirects and such) so I know htaccess is enabled and works.
