I think it's no possible to jump in a manialink page(protected with maniacode) without paying. Maybe if someone finds the direct url to the page?

And that isn't as hard as you think :D
I have found out the URLs to really many Manialinks, yet, following you should do to avoid hacking Manialinks/Maniacodes:
Never use full URL in Links, with only one link you can come also to the other pages ;)
But if you look into the Cache, you can view the URLs of the pictures(and you can't avoid it), so you should also safe the pages for example with a user agent query:

Code: Select all

<?php
if ($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] != "GameBox")
    die("This Page only can be viewed in TM");
?>
GameBox ist the user agent of TM ;)
And you can't download the file through inserting the URL into the address bar, TM will give you an error message :thumbsup:

Protecting the directory of the hosted files with a correct .htaccess can solve the problems from direct downloading.

Yes but if someone finds the direct url, he can't download the file? Maybe the page will ask for password?
When you say .htaccess you mean the .htpasswd like this

Code: Select all

admin:$apr1$0bcjL...$MJR/npeLDJDLKUAVzd/r./

This pops up a password window and its accessible with username/pass :admin

No :)

I mean a rewriting url rules in a .htaccess (not .htpasswd).

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.your-site.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.your-site.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(zip|rar)$ http://www.your-site.com/no-hotlink.png [R,NC]
Every zip or rar entered adress will be redirected to the no-hotlink.png picture.
