Inverted filter ?
« on: January 14, 2018, 02:07 PM »
I just upgraded from URLSnooper 2.41.01 to 2.42.01 and noticed that suddenly the program no longer displays the URLs that I had it configured to display.

In 2.41.01 , I had these keywords entered in the filter textbox: youtube;cnn;liveleak

When I clicked Sniff Network, only the URLs of those three website were shown, since I was only interested in those. It worked perfectly.

Now in 2.42.01 it is inverted which is stupid. Now that field accepts keywords for sites I DON'T want ? How am I supposed to do that ? If I try using the "Must Contain" textbox then it won't work either since it treats the semi-colon separator character (;) as AND instead of as OR and tries to apply all keywords to a single URL. Not to mention that the Help pages seem hopelessly outdated and useless and still list the separator as | and not ;

So basically there is no way anymore for me to set 3 (or 5 or 7 ...) keywords to show only 3 (or 5 or 7) sites I am interested in. You should have just renamed the caption above the textfields to say "Inclusion Filter (show matching urls)". Instead you made the program useless.

Very disappointing.

Let me add an option so you can treat the Must Contain field as an "OR" instead of "AND", and I think that will solve your problem, yes?
