I have a website content management program that can include or exclude webpages from being processed in a certain way.
And the documentation says I can use "regular expressions" to do it. Specifically following the documentation on regular expressions at this url http://www.regular-expressions.info/reference.html
And the documentation says I can test them at http://gskinner.com/RegExr/
However I'm not quite sure on how to do it. I have little or no experience on "regular expressions". This is the first I have heard of it. However I certainly know dos wildcards such as *.* and ?. But that's my limit.
Here are example urls I am trying to include and exclude using "regular expressions:
I want "http://wwwfoobar.org/fruits/
" to be EXcluded, using regular expressions, but I want its subdirectory "http://wwwfoobar.org/fruits/bananas/
" to be INcluded.
So pages such as
...would be EXcluded from being processed in a certain way by the content management system.
But pages such as
...would be INcluded to be processed in a certain way by the content management system.
Also it would be ideal if anything in the bananas subdirectories would be INcluded via a wildcard expression -- so that I wouldn't have to manually have to type each page into the system.
