.htaccess woes ... :) ( problem with IndexOptions )

Advert test

Hi Guys,

Hopefully a quick one that I'm just not seeing and it isn't something that has just been left out for some rather silly reason

I want to exclude . .. from fancyindexes in a folder ... no major problem there

IndexIgnore . ..
My issue is I want sub folders to be able to include .. and I can't seem to figure it out.

Any ideas? :)

Good news - you're not missing something stupid.

Bad news, I don't think you can, short of putting an overriding .htaccess in each of the subfolders.
But I don't know if you can override IndexIgnore - try Options -Indexes in the parent, and Options +Indexes in each subfolder

Or depending what you're trying to do, a bit of a workaround

Cheers for the linkage ... I've already come up with an alternative solution but would have preferred not to have to ... if I really wanted I could chop out the first /FOLDER/.. with a bit of jquery but it's not what I wanted to have to do ah well .. I wait for Apache 2.3 which it would seem with have IndexIgnoreReset :)
