Displaying Wrong Files??

edited September 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm noticing something really odd happening withmy File Browser install.

I have the files that I want displayed in folders with names that do not include and underscore.


Then files that I do not want displayed I have included an underscore before the name of the file.


That's good. The folders with underscores do not display. However, when I click on a folder to view the contents in File Browser, I am taken to the first folder that shows up alphabetically on my server.

For example:

When I click on folder filename1, I'm showed the contents of folder _anotherfilename1. When I click on folder filename2, I'm showed the contents of folder _anotherfilename2...etc.

Help??? Here's the site for more detailed example:

    That's wierd. I'll have to test it when I have time. In the meantime, try this: rather than adding underscores to your folder names, just change them to regular folder names and then add the ones you want hidden to the HideFiles parameter in your _config.xml. I bet that will do what you want.

    I can confirm this bug exists in 1.3.3. I'll provide a link to an example of it in action if necessary.
