Hiding files

edited July 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I set 'forum' in the hidden files part of the config so my vanilla directory wouldnt be browsed by filebrowser. And its now not showing in the list of folders, however when i click 'images' (the next (and only) folder there) it browses the forum folder. And i have to change the 'did' variable in the address bar to get it to browse images.

I guess this is mainly a linking bug, but it could also be a bit of a security hole if people notice that theres a jump between 2 did's when browsing something (i,e then they can look at the folder[s] in the middle)

    It's fixed and uploaded. You can get version 1.3.1 from, now :)

    I encountered a similar problem with version 1.3.3.

    I installed Filebrowser in a directory containing two subdirectories: '_foo' and 'bar'.

    On the main Filebrowser page only 'bar' was listed under the 'Folders' heading, but clicking on the link displayed the contents of '_foo' instead of the contents of 'bar'.

    The following patch fixes this:
