Question on combining filters

Postby shawn » Mon Jan 30, 2017 1:40 am

I'm running into a problem while trying to combine two filters that work on their own but won't work together and I'm wondering if that's design.
I have a filter that I use for one that accepts posts if the header matches a poster's posting name. Another filter I have accepts posts if the Subject matches a particular subject. They each work for their respective newsgroups. However if I put both filters into a new filter and then try and apply that filter to one of the newsgroups no posts pass through the filters.

So is this by design, or is there a method that I can set up two tests (one subject and one poster) and have any header that passes either test be displayed?
I hope my explanation is clear enough. Thanks for any help.

PM me what you're putting into the filter for this and the group. I'll look at it and see what I think. Both should be combinable but I wonder if it's not matching what you think it's matching so the combination doesn't work.
