Filters applied locally?

Hi Oleg!

Is it possible to apply URL/Directory/File filter only to certain level of page. For example. I have starting page with URLs to other pages (servers). I would like to tell OE to follow only links containg phrase "url=" for example, but I want only this rule to be applied to starting page not to other pages linked to it. In such a case rule would be applied locally to starting page not globally to all pages linked to starting one. Maybe additional feature in future versions? :-))))

Please try to Exclude filename keywords:

http://startingserver/*/*
#http://startingserver/*/*url=*

Use the starting server name instead of startingserver above.

Perhaps this helps.

Best regards,

Hmmm. Now I'm confused. Exclude means do not follow these links?

Maybe my description was confusing. What I am going to achieve is to apply rule only to starting page with links not to other pages.
