    Hi,
    I have installed BLC 0.9.5 on wordpress 3.0.
    I get log of 403 forbidden on all images present in wp-content/uploads.
    I noticed the permission are 777 and this is not good.
    The images are visible from browser.
    Any suggestion?

    This error is usually caused by hotlink protection - a server setting or a piece of .htaccess code that is supposed to prevent other sites from displaying your images. Some forms of hotlink protection incorrectly flag the plugin's web requests as malicious and block them.

    You can either turn off hotlink protection on your site, or disable image checking.

    "You can either turn off hotlink protection on your site, or disable image checking."

    To disable image checking in BLC, go to Settings -> Link Checker -> Which Links To Check and uncheck the "HTML images" box.

    I can't help you with turning off hotlink protection as that varies wildly from site to site. Ask your hosting provider about it.
