Hello we need to do a filter that is like this

www.admin.com
www.admin.com/?vb=something       <<< only on in this profile to be shown
www.admin.com/other

so the regex need to block all that dose not have ?vb=something . please let me know if this is not totally clear but the short is we need to show nothing but the one path with out useing the javascript to set the domain path as that is not an option here.  Just need to filter data on the reporting end of google.  

Thank you
Cheers -Jeremy

I believe you want this:

Match: ^([^\?]*)$    (match all characters unless a question mark is found)
Replace:                (i.e., replace the matched line with a blank line

If you want to eliminate the blank lines and condense the report, replace $ with \n or \n\r  (not sure if your report contains carriage returns)

I think this is what you want:

^(.(?!\?vb=))*$
