This month my hits have risen to 4 million but I still only get about 500 visitors a day. I've found one site that is using alot of my smileys and it's a busy site too. I'm trying to use .htaccess to block the site from using my smileys but to no avail, my current .htaccess looks like this:
deny from suicideforum.com (test to see if it works)
deny from ezboard.com (another leecher)
deny from miarroba.com (the offending site, leeching loads of my smileys)
okies back up but .htaccess still isnt working .. tried deleting the old one off the server first then uploading the new one .. tried uploading a blank one first and used cpanel to edit the htaccess file .. all no joy

As I said in my PM to you, just msg me on AIM/MSN and I'll try to guide you through on what to do and what to NOT do.
Take care. Have fun!

I'm just a shared host user .. htaccess is probably the most complicated thing i ever have to deal with as all of my sites are static .. i only use the php extension cause i like using includes .. saves me modifying 50 pages every time i wanna make a change.
I dont really understand how it works but apparently the orignal method i tried blocked by ip this method which works blocks by referer, I would have thought blocking the miarroba ip would have stopped any image appearing on the site.
I couldn't find leech protect or boxtrapper in my cpanel .. all i know is its version 10
I did have the forwarding site as http://****you.com but sometimes when pasting the url of a smiley straight in the browser directed anyone there though it doesnt seem to be doing that now.
