Help filtering out directories/files from directory listing?

Hi!

There is a site (example) with a directory listing:

http://www.site.com/img/

It contains some folders with images:

http://www.site.com/img/001/thumbs/
http://www.site.com/img/001/full/

This goes up to, say site.com/img/500.

What I need to do is to set OE to only download from 250 through 500, and *exclude* the thumbs folders and contents. That is, I don`t want 001-249, just 250 and up.

Thanks! :-)

By the way, what I was kind of wondering as part of this, is how do I simply exclude the ranges 001-249? (Or http://site.com/img/{001..249}.)

This kind of URL Macros will not work in URL Filters. I would suggest you to use Include directory keywords list with the following:

img/5*
img/4*
img/3*
img/25*
img/26*
img/27*
img/28*
img/29*

This should work.

Hmm... I have set it to download:

- File Filters: jpg/jpeg images only
- Server filter: include ^site.com$
- Directory filter: include ^/img/, exclude /thumbs/
- Filename: include ^*.jpg$, exclude some abc.html files

I have not yet excluded those those img/1*.

However, I do not get any images, only the front page of the site?

Oh, and the "front page" is still a directory listing.

Can you please send me your Project settings to support@metaproducts.com ? Please select the Project, click the Copy button on toolbar and then paste it to the E-mail message. I will try to reproduce the problem and advise you on what to do.

If the site is password-protected, can you please send me your username and password as well? This will be used strictly for testing purposes.

Oleg.
