How to use ignoreFiles to ignore a README.md in a section folder

Like the title says I’m trying to use ignoreFiles to not render a README.md file I have inside a section folder.

I have tried using the following without any luck:

ignoreFiles = ['README.md', '/content/docs/README.md', '\content\docs\README.md', '^README'], 

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

There might be a better way to do this but top of my head. Add this to your site’s config.yaml:

cascade:
- _target:
    path: /docs/README.*
    kind: page
  _build:
    render: never
    list: never

You could also add it to the section’s _index.md's front matter and make the path relative (untested)

Thanks for pointing this out, since I am using toml this is what I ended up using in case anyone else needs to do something similar:

[[cascade]]
  [cascade._target]
    path = "/docs/README.*"
  [cascade._build]
    render = "never"
    list = "never"

while you’re there would you try including the full file path and (/docs/README.md) and see if it works?

Not sure why I assume it wouldn’t.
