Is there a way with PHP to check to see if a URL (PHP document) was manually entered into a browser or if it was requested by a webserver like a <href> or <img> tag?

Directly from the [a href=\"http://www.php.net/reserved.variables\" target=\"_blank\"]PHP Manual[/a]:

[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]$_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];

The address of the page (if any) which referred the user agent to the current page. This is set by the user agent. Not all user agents will set this, and some provide the ability to modify HTTP_REFERER as a feature. In short, it cannot really be trusted. [/quote]
