.gitignore is ignoring files in a directory

I have a .gitignore file which I am trying to only let git see the dirs and files in /wp-content/plugins/event-manager and /wp-content/themes/StringsV2.

The one for the theme is working but the plugin one only includes the dir and ignores all the files.

# Ignore everything in the root except the "wp-content" directory.
/*
!.gitignore
!wp-content/
!wp-config.php

# Ignore everything in the "wp-content" directory, except the "plugins"
# and "themes" directories.
wp-content/*
!wp-content/plugins/
!wp-content/themes/

# Ignore everything in the "plugins" directory, except the plugins you
# specify (see the commented-out examples for hints on how to do this.)
wp-content/plugins/*
!wp-content/plugins/event-manager/

# Ignore everything in the "themes" directory, except the themes you
# specify (see the commented-out example for a hint on how to do this.)
wp-content/themes/*
!wp-content/themes/StringsV2/

Any ideas where it is going wrong? Thanks
