  • May be you can change the chmod ?

    Open notepad.
    Type “No thanks !”
    Save as ‘index.html’
    Upload into wp-content
    That should sort the problem.

    Your host should also offer a way to prevent directory listing when an index file is not present.

    Thansk alot it is working OK

    but what about the sub-folders ?

    as i said i need to set sub-folders for older pictures

    can i do that ?

    Just put the same index.html in each.

    Mail your support and ask them to close that hole too.

    Yeah, you should be able to set up a “no hotlinking, no downloads” thing through your host’s cPanel or whatever you have.

    Good luck – I’ll bet your bandwidth use will drop when the holes get plugged!
