.gitignore * but a subfolder seems to be buggy

So I've read the principle but somehow I don't find a way of doing what I want

This is my

.gitignore


*
!wp-content/*


And the wp-content folder is like this :

wp-content
-- index.php
-- languages/
-- plugins/
-- themes/


However it does not take in account the subfolder.
I've seen that I shoudl use
**
but it is not working either.

What is the proper way to include every file / folder under
wp-content
?

Answer

Please try this. Remember to negate the ignore of .gitignore also, otherwise your rules won't work:

.gitignore

/*
!.gitignore
!wp-content

This comment helped me understand what was going on.
