Quick filter help

Postby thalor » Wed Jul 02, 2014 3:04 pm

I'm sure this has been posted before but I'm not quite sure what to search for. I am looking for a way to filter out any posts that have a either a 5 or 6 digit number in the subject.

Example:

Spam Post spam.jpg 123456
Spam Post spam2.jpg 645322

They appears to be random numbers. At any rate how would one eliminate those?

Thanks in advance.

[.]jpg.*[0-9]{5,6}

If you always want it to be

"...jpg[sp]<number>" then

"[.]jpg\s[0-9]{5,6}"

Which means "dot followed by "jpg" followed by a space, followed by 5 or 6 numbers from 0-9".

Type this into the find box and only matches should be display in the listings. Don't type in the quotes.
