Filter .par and .par2

Postby JanJonkman » Wed Dec 21, 2016 1:49 am

Hi there,

Is there a way to implement a filter that ignores .par and .par2 files?

Regards,

Jan

Ignore how?

There's an option called "Show PAR/NFO" which will make small files like that ignore the size filters.

perhaps I did not explained my wish well. What I want is a filter for a specific group that does not download .par and .par2 files.

If they're packed together with other files, you can't really easily filter them out. If they're by themselves you can filter them out with a filename or subject filter.

So are you trying to filter our loose par files or par files that are packed into a set of files?

You really not giving me much information to work with here.

I think I found the problem. If I choose the option "Show PAR / NFO" it not just overwrite the file size, but also disables the custom filtering rules \.par and \.par2. .When i disable "Show PAR / NFO" filtering works for \.par and \.par2 as I want.

Sorry for the inconvenience

Kind regards,

John
