If you are going to block one thing, eventually you will block two, then three, etc.

I suggest learning how to use "map".

I deleted the 'none' and 'blocked' and no difference still not blocking
direct access to the URL

Tried adding it in its own block and adding it to the end of an existing
block neither worked

Is the location /radio/ part ok

I am trying to block direct access to any URL with a directory /radio/

The URLs look like sub.domain.tld/radio/1234/mytrack.mp3?45678901

I need it so the URL is only served if a link on *.mysite.* is clicked ie
the track is only played through an html5 audio player on mysite

Anyone have anymore ideas

Best regards

Ashley
