Hi!

Downloading a wiki project, i`m having some trouble to exclude Links!

I start with URL
http://www.nslu2-linux.org/

and then the queue shows up after a certain time:
http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Main/HomePage?action=diff

Even if i write in Project properties URL Filter:

*action*
*action=diff
*action=edit
*action=print
action

you see, which kind of Links i simply want to disable...
so nothing of them seem to work?

The only thing i configured was the address-url as described on top, and the
Server: Custom Server config: Include www.nslu2-linux.org

What`s wrong here?

You need to place these exclusion keywords in the URL Filters - Filename section - Excluded filename keywords list.

Thanks Oleg, but i don`t understand the reason thy this filter isn`t being detected on URL-Level...

Since i expect the whole url would be compared against this exclude rules.
How do you compare URL-exclusions?
(Or in other words: When do they work?)

In the URL Filters you can specify the whole URLs only - no masks. In the Filename section you can specify parts of URLs (masks) to be compared.

Oleg: So in my other case this would result in a next question:

On a page
http://www.suzuki-motorcycles.ch/de/products/
i want to download any subfolder/elements like
http://www.suzuki-motorcycles.ch/de/products/models/sport/
and so on..

but there exist a namespace called
http://www.suzuki-motorcycles.ch/de/products/~username
like
http://www.suzuki-motorcycles.ch/de/products/~arrigoni
(where username could be any string)

Which has to be deactivated in my download.
Seems to be needed to me to allow masks in URL filter like
http://www.suzuki-motorcycles.ch/de/products/~*

But how do i do this without masks?

Thanks a lot!

URL Filters - Directory - Excluded list:

de/products/~*
