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.


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.

If you always want it to be

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


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.
