[resolved] wildcard or regex in URL admin? (3 posts)

    First, your plugin is awesome, and totally a core, essential feature for wordpress. I can't imaging running wordpress without this functionality.

    I'd really like to see something in the URL admin area that enabled wildcard characters or some kind of logic that would ease the burden of entering language specific URLs.

    I have a URL like this http://www.domain.com/some/path/to-page
    and I'd like to enter something like this in the URL admin


    Can you consider doing this? I must not be the only person running multilingual sites and using Plugin Organizer. Anyone else?

    There have been several requests for that but I don't plan on doing it. The reason is that the URL has to be checked on every page load. Using regex matching would significantly slow a site down, which is the opposite of this plugins purpose.

    Ok, that's quite understandable. However, would you consider streamlining the URL entry process?

    Maybe use the regex just to make it easier on users to enter URLs, then expand the regex into the full URL's before adding them to the db.
    Maybe just reduce the number of clicks required to enter a URL. After I enter a URL, I have to click twice to get back the the URL input text box. How about present the text box in the screen that says "URL successfully added to the database."?

    If I could enter http://www.domain.com/[ja,pt,th]/path/to/page and Plugin organizer entered all three URLs into the DB with the setting I check, that would be seriously helpful.
