The WordPress Automatic Image Hotlink Protection plugin is a single step script designed to stop others from stealing your images.
I think there's an error.
If your installation is in another directory, the htaccess created is not in the right folder.
I have been trying different methods for disabling hot link:
1- Cpanel hotlink protection: Big crash and you have to restore the original .htaccess file to make your site run again.
2- Writing a code in Bulletproof Security Pro. Still nothing
3- So here was to give this plugin a try: Nothing gets protected.
This is what I have tried to test:
Opened the site that I have installed and activated this plugin on.
Then press CTRL+U and I see the source on the site.
Then found the source of an image on my site (wp-content/upload)and paste it in the browser.
An image in full ress without any protection.
I have even cleared my sites server cache + browser cache before making the test.
I am also running the latest version of WordPress at this moment: 3.6.1
