Testing Site Lock

If I add ONLY stencyl.com to the site lock list, then upload to FGL, it shouldn't work on FGL, right?

It does. Did I miss something or is something not working right? Also tried www.stencyl.com and http://www.stencyl.com.

(NOTE: still using 2.0)

I've tested this at

http://www.fastswf.com/

adding only my own website on the site lock list. The message:

"Hi there! It looks like somebody copied this game without my permission..."

comes up as expected, so I know it's working. But the exact same file still works at FGL. It would appear FGL is bypassing the Stencyl site lock feature(Kindi is disabled). Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Is it the same reason it works on the Stencyl Arcade(by design) or is the FGL upload corrupting the file somehow?

Did you add your own website when you uploaded to fgl? I think that if you specify Stencyl as your site lock, it will ignore it as that is the default.

Yes. I used the exact same file for the upload test to FGL. It only has one website listed which is my own. The upload to fastswf was a control to make sure the site lock feature was indeed functioning.

Might I ask how you add a Sitelock ?

OIC. No worries. We're all human.

I wonder whether sitelock doesn't work for secure locations.

You mean maybe it gets bypassed on an https:// site? But that would allow any pirate with a secure site to engage in their thievery.

To be honest, the idea of a sitelock isn't too hard to implement through your own code.

I'm not a coder. That's why I need Stencyl  :-\

letmethink is probably correct about the sitelock code failing on https sites.  The sitelock doesn't work on the Stencyl arcade because Stencyl is always permitted no matter what you put in the sitelock field.
