Hi,

I'm using Hotlink Blocker and want to stop a particular user-agent (a web-bot) from spidering a directory in my website.

I've tried adding the directory (/mp3s) with LINK protection and added the user-agent (YodaoBot) to the User-Agents black-list, but it ends up blocking it for everyone.

Do I need to add in every user-agent type that should be allowed to the white-list??

Use REFERRER protection, add wildcard User-Agent like "*" to whitelist and add your specific User-Agent to black list.
