Description of the issue

In earlier versions, there was the ability to NOT list databases by appending a "_" to the file name.  For example:

2.1 Hiding Multi-User Files in the Hosts Dialog Box
It may be desirable to prevent multi-user files from being listed in the Hosts dialog box. For example, related files or lookup files which are accessed through a master file need not be opened explicitly by a user. You can prevent a multi-user file from being displayed in the Hosts dialog box by giving it a name ending in "_" (underscore) or "_.fp3". For example, naming a file "Invoice Items_.fp3" will prevent it from being listed in the Hosts dialog box.


This also works for the built-in page of the FileMaker Pro Web Companion. Databases ending in "_" or "_.fp3" will not be displayed when using Instant Web Publishing.

Does this still work in FileMaker Server Advanced 11
