Post site nuke command vs symlinks

Hi out there!

I have a little issue and maybe there is someone that know how and if its possible to solve it.

When i got alot of folders in one of my sections theres often, lets say 20/100 of them are incomplete-tagged by the ftp-server (symlinks), as a siteop i want to nuke those with the reason: incomplete, but every time i need to first enter the folder and then go back with backspace to the subfolder and then suddendly the "real folder" not the symlink is marked and i can do my custom cmd ctrl-n for site nuke.

Summary: Is it possible to bypass symlinks and get FlashFXP to understand if i mark 20 symlinks that it should go and nuke FOLDER1 and not (incomplete)-FOLDER1 , ? thx

Example whats happend if i nuke a "symlink": (incomplete)-folder1: Invalid directory.

Sorry for my bad english and thanks for taking time to read my post.

A symbolic link has two parts.. the display name and the destination, when we display the symbolic link we only keep the display name, in most cases you can perform the same command directly on the symbolic link.. this would appear to be one situation where that isn't the case.

Sadly there's no way to expose the destination to be usable for the custom command.

I'd say this is more a limitation of the server side script/ftp server or whatever is handling the nuke command, because it should be able to do that.

Thanks for your answer bigstar

There must be some kind of script/batching that can detect special foldernames against "highligts", enter them, go back and the run a site nuke command against them, at least i wish there is some kind of solution if anyone got a cluse or an idea i would be grateful!
