Hi guys

I am sure i have done this before, but I'm not sure it was with Filezilla

Filezilla 3.3.4.1, fresh install

Situation is
I have to download an extremely large website full of subdirectories and alter all HTML files.

Problem is
I can't seem to download only the html files, i am getting lots of images coming down as well

What i have tried
Setting a filename filter to exclude jpegs, gifs and pdfs, doesn't seem to work

Any help would be appreciated

Remote file search > Filename | Ends with > .html
Excellent it works perfectly

This is just for my reference when i forget in a weeks time

Do the following on the toolbar

Server
--> Search remote server
--> select the extension Filename | Ends with > .html
--> select download and make sure it is set to preserver file paths

Thanks SoniKalien

i swear i have read the manual a dozen times and not found that, or at least not understood it can be used that way
