Can't understand logic of filters

I am trying create skip filters. Like example, I need skip "http://www.somesite.ru/blog/xxxx/feed", where xxxx are only numbers. Or same thing for addresses "http://www.somesite.ru/node/xxxx/edit" or "http://www.somesite.ru/node/xxxx/log" etc... I even already created
Exclusion for folder like "edit" or "log" and for file names same one don't work.
Masks for URL like "http://www.somesite.ru/node/*/log" or "http://www.somesite.ru/node/[1-9]/log" don't work as well.
I still get tons of unwanted URL in queue.
What I can to do in this case?

Or....How can I deal with trash link like "http://www.somesite.ru/node/xxxx/showcontent('inactive','hiddenlayerd26e1637');"? Same logic for *, [1-9] or even "skip file" = *showcontent* doesn't work (((

For the first link, use URL Filters - Filename section and exclude:

/blog/*/feed
/node/*/edit
/node/*/log

If it doesn't work, please give me actual address examples.

The same is for:

/node/xxxx/showcontent

I would also make sure that File Filters categories use the "Load using URL Filters" in the Location box. Some of them, like Images, Video, User Defined (which is used for scripts and styles) is set for downloading from any site.

If unwanted links do not have any extension (part after . symbol in filename), then it is served by File Filters - Other category by default.

These filters work. Very strange. May be there was conflict in different ruled. I cleaned all old filters, applied your and it helped me.
Thank you very much!
