Can visitors from a certain web site be blocked?


If possible, how could it be done?

Thanks
John

Do you mean visitors from a certain isp or visitors coming from a certail referral site?

IE everyone who clicked on your address from for example google.com? or all everyone using aol..

The blocking of anyone clicking through (eg) google.com is a simple referral check which you could write very quickly and easily write in php.

No, sorry, I meant visitors from a certain web site - they click a link that points to my web site etc.

Like I said, simple php script checking the referral address.

It can be done but it depends a lot on their browsers. Sometimes the referral address isn't captured for some reason.

Additionally some privacy concious folks have th referrer blocked so it isn't reported, giving the same effect as sprintserve's observation about the browser just not capturing it.

Mod rewrite could do it if you don't want to do it in PHP.
