Hi All,

I was wondering if there is a way to stop some folders/files being indexed by SilverStripe (3.1) when they are stored in the assets folder, we have files that are uploaded and extracted, the extracted folder I do not want this indexed automatically,

Any ideas appreciated.

The easiest way is to start the name of the folder with an underscore.

Hi I just tried that and it doesn't work creating a folder with an leading underscore like '_foldername' still gets indexed by Silverstripe in Files.

Any other ideas?

Yes. The leading underscore doesn't work anymore... in favour of a hardcoded '_resampled' or '_combinedfiles'... though not sure why...

You can use the dot as the prefix (.myfolder) or you can define your own blacklist pattern:

e.g.

# blacklist the underscore
Filesystem:
  sync_blacklisted_patterns:
    - '/^\_/'
