    use of L and R on rewrite

    Im curious if this is a good idea or if there is a better way.

    In one of my rewrites i use F to deny them access. My idea is to use the R instead and then make a special error file just for that.

    What i mean is this.

    On this rewrite instead of just showing them a special error page, i want to show them an image that says NOT AUTHORIZED.

    So my idea is to use lets say R=301 for example. Then make a special error page for 301 that displays the image.

    The problem with this is that all normal 301 will also see the image and i dont want that, i just want them to see the image if it is denied thru the rewrite.

    So should i make a fake code like R=999 i dont know.. it would be great if i could do R=link to my image but i dont think thats possible

    And i meant F not L in the title lol.

    Actually i just had a thought here and it might not work what i said.

    what i have is below, if i block them from images then they wont be able to see the not auth image either unless i put it above the public html right.

    it would be nice if i could do R=link instead of just F here

    RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp|wmv)$ - [F,NC,L]
