Hotlink protection

Postby K2 » Aug 20th, 2005 at 8:12 pm

Just an FYI - you can no longer direct link to php pages on the HF website. For those of you that bookmark the msgboard directly, you'll now be redirected to the main HF page instead. You'll need to click on the msgboard link in the left frame, as originally intended. Too many of ya ask me questions about this or that that's already been posted on our news page from days ago - looks like you gonna have to take a glance now ;) Also doing this as a security measure, and it also helps me keep more accurate tracks of site visits.

Pictures can still be direct-linked (photo album, etc).

Oh yeah... if you were planning on bitchin about this, dont bother :twisted:

I'm bitching.... when i get the e-mail response if someone has posted to a thread i'm watching , then link sends to the homepage instead of the post. Kinda dumb IMO...

Get rid of the frames all together... but that's just coming from a seasoned web dev. :)

Hopefully we don't lose too many forum and website visitors, but there's a default setting for Medium Security level on Norton Internet Security that completely fucks hardfought.org now. Basically, you have to allow it to view your info from visited sites. That goes for trying to directlink to the forums, or for doing the whole http://www.hardfought.org/ thing. Fuckin' gay. The site allows the browser to load the index, but won't load any content, not even the frameset.

Speaking of which, frames are so fucking mid 1990s...

K2, as much time as you spent getting this stupid shit configured, you could've asked someone to help you out with a table setup, and incorporated that into the site. I wouldn't mind having to click over to the forums via a table layout every time if this stupid frame bullshit wasn't here. I feel like I'm stuck in the goddamn Matrix.

I'll find a way around this guys, and I'll let y'all know how to bypass it. :twisted:

Find a way around it grant!

I wonder how many web dev's we have around here? It'd be cool to have a "redesign hardfought" contest.

We could really clean shit up then... new look, new layout, validated code.... but that's just my little mind a chuggin.

Anyways, i still hate the hotlink protection. DIE.

K2 doesn't wanna' just give free reign over to someone for the website, but I think that we could find someone who could work with him and bring the layout forward about 10 years. :roll:

Maybe do something like this using Sessions instead.

At least that way EVERY time i hit my bookmark i'm not redirected. Just the first time every day. Or something like that...

Ok... not to be a whiny bitch... but here is what i see with the nested frames stuff...

Before hitting submit: http://www.ethernetrage.com/page1.jpg
Hit submit, let it auto redirect you... (instead of hitting the "click here" button)
Then you should get this: http://www.ethernetrage.com/page2.jpg
