I have Hotlink Blocker installed and using Referrer protection.  However I want to use link protection to protect a large group of PDF files.  The problem is that they are in multiple subfolders.

For example, www.mywebsite.com/view/1234/PDF1.pdf would be the first file I want to protect and www.mywebsite.com/view/12345/PDF2.pdf would be the second that I want to protect.  Since all of the PDF sub-folders are under one maine folder is there a way to use that main folder in the configuration or do I need to add each sub-folder indiviually? 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

You can add only main folder to HotlinkBlocker config.

LINK /view/

This rule should protect /view/ folder and all subfolders

Sergey,

  So if I add the view folder as a LINK protected folder and the PDF that I want the link to be created for is in a subfolder called 8181 then would I construct my link as the following?

http://www.mywebsite.com/view/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/8181/File.PDF

OR Should it be constructed as the following?

http://www.mywebsite.com/view/8181/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/File.PDF

Please let me know and again your help is appreciated. Thanks.
