    Question Hotlink protection

    Hello,

    I just implemented this: http://www.alistapart.com/articles/hotlinking/
    on a site, and it works great when someone links directly to an image, something that is done a lot with the site in question. However the solution is not perfect since bloggers often hotlink the images, something I do not mind since I used to use the GD librarly to add the URL of my site to the hotlinked image.

    What I want and need is the best of both, I need a way to combine the two approches. Without perferly without fetching the markup of the page doing the linking or hotlinking. I do not see how I can do it without doing just that.

    Please help me out.
    If you don't know what the frak to do start having more fun!

    Just apply the final solution without blocking hotlinking. Or you can add exclusions on a site-by-site basis. That "solution" is filled with it's own problems though.
