hi, i was just searching for hotlinking tutorials on google and found this website....i'm glad i did

i'm a complete newb at this.

i downloaded he Hotlink blocker, extracted & got 4 files.....and have no idea wat to do.

here is my current htaccess file:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^.*\*$ [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(jpe?g|png|gif|bmp)$ /sorry.jpg [NC,F,L]

1. the /sorry.jpg doesn't show.
2. how can stop all other file types such as videos, compressed files....etc from hotlinking?

let's assume we have any of the following urls: get the idea.

i want to make it so that whenever a "surfer" goes to one of those urls, they see a page with the corresponding link on it....intead of the download starting right when they go to the link....i hope this makes sense.

You can consider two products - ISAPI_Rewrite and HotlinkBlocker. ISAPI_Rewrite can be used as a replacement for mod_rewrite. Here is a translation of your mod_rewrite rules into ISAPI_Rewrite syntax:

RewriteCond Referer: (?!.*\
RewriteRule .*\.(jpe?g|png|gif|bmp) /sorry.jpg [I,O,L]

But if you wish to protect video files then you may need to use HotlinkBlocker instead. I suggest you to install it using MSI installation package instead of trying to set it manually. After installing go to the HotlinkBlocker tab and add the following protection rule:

@.*\.(jpe?g|png|gif|bmp) REDIRECT

I suggest you to read HotlinkBlocker manual first.
