Support » Plugin: WordPress File Monitor Plus » Ignore wpcf7_captcha (Contact Form 7 captcha) folder?

  • I love the plugin and I’m using it in every WordPress installation I have, but I can’t figured out how to ignore the Contact Form 7 captcha folder changes.

    Here is what I have in Dirs/Files To Ignore textarea:

    /home/hosting-username/blog/wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/
    /wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/*
    /wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/

    I tried different combinations, but for now nothing works. Any ideas/suggestion?

  • Hi ya!

    From looking at the code way back i notice this plugin requires you do one of two things:

    1. Give the full path to the file. If its a directory then the full path to the directory, postfixed with a “*”. e.g. /home/hosting-username/blog/wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/*

    OR

    2. Add a “*” wildcard at the very beginning of each relative path. But if the path is for a directory you will also need to postfix another “*”. e.g. */wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/*

    Notice the use of “*” wildcard at the beginning and end above. For directories you want to make sure to use the “*” at the very end. However, to ALSO use relative paths you would also need to use a “*” at the very beginning too.

    This is why your first full path didn’t work — you didn’t include a “*” at the end. And the other two paths (relative) were missing “*” at the beginning.

    So in summation either of the following would now work:

    /home/hosting-username/blog/wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/*
    */wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha/*

    Ha strange, I didn’t receive a notification for the reply.
    I’ve tried different combinations for full path, path with “*” (before and after), but nothing of this works for me. I’ll try few more different approaches and will see what will be the result.

    Did you resolve the problem?
