[SOLVED] Using a loop variable within a regular expression?

Hi there,

I'd like to pass my loop_value into a regular expression (which is in a Crawl Web parameter, which is inside the Loop Values Operator), however replacing my;

.+period-charts.+today.+

with

.+period-charts.+%{loop_value}.+

isn't working.  Any ideas  ???

thanks   Smiley Happy

Re: Using a loop variable within a regular expression?

I beg your pardon Marius. 

It appears that this does in fact work, so long as I don't use the Regex builder / helper within the Crawling Rules of the  CrawlWeb process node.  When I try to include the %{loop_value} within the regex helper, it won't let me <Apply> it because it doesn't like the syntax.  I have to do this without the helper, which is fine because it works.  ;D
