Remove or limit access to all image Uploads excluding Avatars and some other stuff

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I am in the unfortunate sitation that I reside in Germany and a so called "Abmahn-Anwalt" (an attorny who soley focuses on making money off 'formal warnings') has figured that a community that runs since 1999 (Hello IKONBoard....) would be a fitting place to scrub through for uploaded images and request thousands of euros in fees and compensations.

As much as it pains me I'd like to hide ALL image uploads from:

  • Forum Postings
  • Attachments from IP.Content news and database entries

What I like to keep are avatars and images from a certain database.

My initial approach was to limit access to file-types like .jpeg and .png in the "uploads" folder but found out soon enough, that this folder also contains the user avatars and has them sorted within the monthly image folders and not a dedicated one.

Have you any idea on how to approach this? 🙂

This would need some sort of custom development. 

I can do some basic scripting myself. Can you point me into the right direction here? Is there a specific file that handles all the url constructs from IP.Content etc? 🙂
