    It simply means that direct linking (showing) your pic from the other site in CS is not allowed by the other host.

    What about Photobucket? Can it consider as hotlinking?

    after looking into details, it seems that your server disable hotlinking. preventing hotlinking simply means not letting unauthorised use of images/files from one server to another site, which is commonly known as 'bandwidth theft'

    u might want to change that in your control panel.

    hope that helps.

    Hi Bobman, get your sysadmin to check your htaccess file. Your server is preventing images to be linked from external websites and will only show images if the browser address is conforming to what you set in your htaccess file (usually only the address of the originating site).

    Its not a double standard thing, its your own server settings.
