    I have a forum and I have an upload site.

    I would like to limit links not from my forum to default to the home page on my download site rather than mambers from other sites being able to download content.

    is this possible and if you can post a couple of links I would be interested in looking at them.

    I have seen in OTAH, where people have restricted that if the referer was not OT than it would show a random file, I was wondering about this.

    try to be a bit more clear in what you are requesting.

    What language is the site written in? This information needs to be known before sample code can be pasted.

    The forum is vbulletin and the download site is written in perl.

    The forum is an office machine community and we share manuals for different office machines. I would like to keep other forums in the industry from linking to the files directly.
