Prevent direct linking to print-friendly pages?
Some sites link directly to our print pages which have little to no ads.

OK. Here is what I am trying to do. I want people who surf directly to our printer-friendly version of our pages to be forwarded to the regular version of that article if they are coming from a domain other than mine. Here is an example:

I want this URL: http://example.com/page.php?page=print

To forward to this URL when directly accessed from a different domain: http://example.com/page.php

I want to only allow viewing the print url when you come from ONLY the hosting domain.

What would be the best way to do this?
