    Default htaccess hotlinking

    I have set up in my .htaccess to block hotlinking to images except from specific domains, and except to a specific subfolder on my website. However this subfolder is also used as a subdomain, and my code isn't working for the subdomain (while it does work on the subfolder)
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/p
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [L]
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} \.(gif|jpe?g|png)$ [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !example\.com [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !search\?q=cache [NC]
    RewriteRule (.*) /l?/$1 [R,NC,L]
    So basically I'm blocking hotlinking from anywhere but my domain, except to the subfolder "/p" - anywhere can hotlink to that subfolder. But if a site hotlinks to the subdomain "p" (eg the hotlink is broken.

    And ideas on how to allow hotlinks to that subdomain?

    what are you doing looking in here?
