there sure is.  when you create a node that shows the contents of one (or more) folders, you can specify accept and reject patterns for files and folders:

Mouser thanks for your reply, but could you explain how if I have a folder which have sub folders that are number from 1 up to 1110, where anything before 500 could be classed as historic and just clutter up the menu scrolling down to the higher number folders.
The folder contain a mixture of files pdf jpg doc etc. what exactly would i need to do just to see folders that are numbered higher than 700.

Thanks for any help in advance

hmm thats a bit trickier.  you MIGHT be able to do it by accepting subdir patterns of 5??;6??;7??;8??;9??;1???
but im not sure if the ? will work.

what i would honest suggest is that you re-organize a bit and move the older stuff into its own subdir called "old" and then exclude that.

Can someone explain why when I enter 525 as the folder I want to accept, it filters out all the rest and just shows 525. But when i enter 525;869;1058 it returns no folders? This is becoming very frustrating >:(

seems a bug in the code regarding the ;
try using < instead of ; to separate
for the inclusion and exclusion items.
