I am having problems with the Hotlink protection

The functionality of the "Hotlink Protection" can be corrupted by custom rewrite rules or redirections.

Thus if you your Hotlink Protection does not work try the following steps:

  1. Rename the .htaccess file in your public_html directory to htaccess. This will disable all custom rewrite rules and redirections;
  2. Add again your Hotlink protection and it will be working.
