Question about URL filtering!

Hi. I need to download a small subsection of a large site.

Example:

www.examplesite.com/info/topic_1
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_2
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_3
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_4
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_5
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_6
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_7
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_8
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_9
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_10

.
.
.

www.examplesite.com/info/topic_100


Question: How do I download only 10 folders (within the 100 existing) without making an exclusion for the other 90 folders?

What I want to do: I would just like to specify the folders I want. Not make exclusions for the folders I don`t want (which could be hundreds).

In my Project setup, the Top-level Project URL Address is "www.examplesite.com" because I need to download other things to. However, I just want to download a few of "info" folders (from the hundreds existing).

To sum up my question,

I want to download:

www.examplesite.com/info/topic_5/
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_15/
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_30/
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_55/
www.examplesite.com/info/topic_70/

But I don`t want to have to make an "exclusion" for all the other subfolders of "info".

Thanks!

This should be easy - please use the Included directory keywords list. You don`t need to specify any excluded folder - any folder that doesn`t match the included list keywords will be excluded automatically.

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

So if I make only 1 "inclusion", all the other folders are exluded? Automatically?

Example:

www.site.com/products
www.site.com/prices
www.site.com/inventory
www.site.com/info/topic_1/
www.site.com/info/topic_2/
www.site.com/info/topic_3/
www.site.com/info/topic_4/
www.site.com/info/topic_5/
www.site.com/info/topic_6/
www.site.com/info/topic_7/
www.site.com/info/topic_8/
www.site.com/suppliers
www.site.com/manufacturers

So, if the site is: www.site.com/default.htm

And I place an "inclusion" on www.site.com/info/topic_5/, it will exclude all the other "info" subfolders?

Instead, if I place an "exclusion" on www.site.com/info/topic_5/, it will include all the other "info" subfoders?

It works like that?

Thanks!

Yes, of course! But keep in mind: You have to set "Load using URL filters settings" in the corresponding File Filters.

Yes (all the other "info" folders that are not in the "inclusion" list).

Yes.
