Directory listing filter doesn't filter directory

#1 Post by parky » 2018-12-31 16:19

Hopefully someone can point out where I'm going wrong... (I am using Filezilla 3.39.0 64-bit)

In my directory tree I have a number of directories named 'master' which hold original large jpgs from which the web-based ones are derived. I don't want these uploaded to the server. I have tried using View -> Directory listing filters but to no avail.

In filezilla I'm sitting in a subdirectory that contains a load of jpg files and a subdirectory named 'master'.
I create a new filter: 'Filter applies to Directories' box is ticked, Filter conditions are "Filter out items matching all of the following - path contains master.
Click 'OK and then 'apply'.
Nothing happens
Revisit the filter and tick the box 'files', change the filter to be 'Filename contains jpg' then all the files vanish.
I've tried variants on the directory filter without any success - the subdirectory 'master' stubbornly remains on view.

What have I misunderstood/got wrong?

Well having a further look at it I found the filter setting of:

filename is equal to master

worked. It doesn't explain why the more intuitive(?) one of 'path contains master' doesn't.
