Post Unrar Filter

Postby jaytt » Wed Feb 15, 2017 5:12 am

Hi all,

Running the latest version and all well except my post unrar filter has been deleted?

I guess it happened when I imported my previous filters across.

Everything filtering and working fine but Im left with a load of .nfo, .sfv etc files....

I tried creating a new cleanup filter but cant get it to work properly.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to import/rebuild my post unrar filter please?

Thanks
jaytt

What version are you using? I'd suggest running the 6.73RC. It's pretty much releasable but this current spam attack simply pushed it back.

You checked the check box and added the filter into the Autopar options?

The filters need to be filename reject filters in the filter profile for

"[.]nfo"

and the like in the filter profile. You can do one per line.

Hi
thanks for replying.

Running 6.72 (Build 4776) on Ubuntu 16.10 (under WINE)

I have ticked the Enable Post UnRAR filter in AutoPAR Options
& selected my filter I created "Cleanup"

In my "Cleanup" filter I have 3 lines.
Reject if Subject Contains .nfo
Reject if Subject Contains .sfv
Reject if Subject Contains .srr

I have also tried

*.nfo
etc

and

[.]nfo
etc

and

"[.]nfo"
etc

but none seem to work
I restart Newsbin each time I make a filter change as im not sure if this is loaded at startup too.
(Im running Linux Ubuntu 16.10 - but this was working until I rebuilt linux and imported my filters)

1 - You need to add the filter the way I suggested

"[.]extension" without the quotes. "\.extension" is also legal.

2 - You need to make it a filename reject filter. Like I mentioned in my post.

It's not working at the very least because you're adding the wrong kind of filter.
