Hello.

I am using HLB on my site.  I have one problem however.
In the CMS of site, i have a bulk image upload feature.
HLB is preventing me from writing to this folder!

What can I do?

Thanks.

Can I see the site, page with upload link and folder name where images are stored and protected folders names? And show your HLB configuration.

Hi

Here is the ini file contents

Here is a sample link:
http://www.menmachine.com/testimage.aspx

The problem we are having is that we cannot upload via our CMS to the display_images/ directory on the server.


I cannot give you access to the upload page.
The name of the directory is /display_images
and is a regular directory on the server.

Also,  many of our customers say that all they see are red x's .. no images for them are showing up.    Are there known situations where certain people cannot see the images?

Thanks.

Config files are named using IIS site identifier. Show here the file that is used by your site. You can see IIS site identifier in the automatic name of a log file directory that IIS uses. Or you can see which filter file is loaded by your site by checking ISAPI filters tab of your site - click properties of HotlinkBlocker filter, .ini file will have the same name.
Both files you did show to me will not work for the image example and thus it simply didn't work.

Not for the LINK protection method.

Please check that HotlinkBlocker ISAPI filter is up and running under your site's properties (there should be a green arrow). Also check file permissions for the HotlinkBlocker installation folder. Better give this folder Everyone read permissions.

And also I need to know how the upload process configured on your server. Does it use JavaScripts? Does it use some components? Is there some upload pages and where it is located? Please explain your configuration in more detail.
