Hi.

does anybody know if it´s possible to force internet explorer to replace a certain image url to an other image url.

Fx.
Every time my browser downloads this image: http://accs-net.com/hosts/Images/gds.jpg, it will replace the image with http://accs-net.com/hosts/transparent.gif

Do I make my self clear? It´s kind of diffecult to explain.

I'm assuming you don't have access to the server and html source to make the change?  If you just want the change to affect a single browser, then you can install something like greasemonkey on the browser and write a simple userscript for that particular domain.

If you have access to the Website server, it is definitely possible to do this on the server.

Create a small text file called ".htaccess" (with the leading dot) containing these lines.  Put the .htaccess file in the top-level folder of your Web site, and it should redirect gds.jpg to transparent.gif for all users who visit your web site.

If this doesn't work, please tell us what Web Server software you are using (Apache, IIS, etc) as it might be different for different server software.

Options +FollowSymLinks
 
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteRule ^hosts/Images/gds.jpg$ hosts/transparent.gif

So do you own http://accs-net.com? 

If you've got an apache web server and access to it, then sjklein42's solution is a good one.  But if you have access to the server then I'm not sure how you don't have access to the code itself.  

Another thing you can do if you have access is simply replace gds.jpg on the server with a new image named gds.jpg without touching the code.  

Maybe I'm misunderstanding exactly what you're dealing with.

Hi.

No I dont own the domain used in the example :)

I dont have access to the server.

The problem is, that i am using serveal cms systems from the same hosts. I want to change some pictures in the administration module because then it´s easier to know the difference between the different sites. Does it make sense?

If you can't change anything on the server and there are too many browsers to modify, you could maybe filter traffic at your router. But someone else will have to give you an example.
