how can i only allow people who came from a certain site to view a web page?
im designing a gallery for a forum and i want the gallery which is on a different host than the forum to only be able to be viewed by people who clicked the link on the forums page i don't want to have to implement a login system i just want to limit where the users can come from
some more details
the gallery is launched in an iframe when a user clicks a link on the page

You could use an HTTP referer... I'm not actually a web designer type of person, so I don't know the specifics, but I don't think this system is sound. Perhaps it'd be easier just to implement password protection.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referer
