Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Only problem is that when I run the auto-update function, the developers coders send a replacement copy of their header image which overwrites mine.
I do not want to change the code in the script. Besides the fact that he did not give permission to do that, the update will probably replace the code and I would have to take the chance of making a mistake somewhere along the line.
What I would like to do is use .htaccess to serve a different image than the one that is delivered with the script, sort of like serving a different image to someone who is hotlinking.
I am awfully weak with .htaccess. Mostly because in addition to being old, tired and ugly, I am having mental absorption issues. Can't absorb much more.
If soemone could please give me some ideas (even code the whole doo-hickey) i would appreciate it.
Thanks many times, and in advance,
Otherwise, the code will be identical to the anti-hotlinking code you can find here, except that you should remove the RewriteCond that checks the referrer, as it won't be needed.
BTW - where is the anti-hotlinking code you mentioned? Do I just search for it, or was there supposed to be a link in your reply?
But, using your advice as the search term, I did find an explanation at [yourhtmlsource.com...] which allowed me to understand the response from Caterham.
Thanks to both. Sorry for being so thick. I think whatever search term I was using in Google was giving me too many results and muddying the waters.
Cheers to both.
Also, suggest you fix the casing of "RewriteEngine on", although it will work as-is on *almost* all servers.
