Hi everyone :)

Im not sure why the following doesnt work

I want to care for eg: ( its always like !cmd_text (_ = space)

!send .cant.this starting with . should be blocked, but doesnt work
!send cant.this. ends with . works - is blocked

Here's my regex:

Code: Select all

spamfilter { regex "^!(sup|send)(.*)(^[^a-zA-Z0-9]+|[^a-zA-Z0-9]+$)";
Can someone tell what im doing wrong ?

Give examples of exactly what you want blocked (at least 5 please) so we know exactly what you need.

!send .cant.this
!send cant.this.
!send (

If the part after !send - seperated with a space - starts or ends with an non alphanumeric char, it should be blocked.

This is the best I could come up with:

Code: Select all

^!send (\W.+|.+\W)$
