    Changes in regular expression in mwg 7.5.1?

    stifi

      Dear all

      We recently upgraded from 7.3.0.2 to 7.5.1. We discovered now an issue regarding regular expression. Please mind that Facebook is blocked in our company (not by category but by an explixit url regular expression). Nevertheless we want to allow some specific facebook links to make all these like buttons appear on news sites as an example.

       

      Here is an example of such a link:

       

      https://www.facebook.com/connect/ping?client_id=72616527888&domain=www.20min.ch& origin=1&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic.ak.facebook.com%2Fconnect%2Fxd_arbit

       

      From my experience I would create a url whitelist with the pattern https://www.facebook.com/connect/ping?*. However for some reason this pattern does not match even the test option matches.

       

      This is a short printscreen from my ruleset:

      I'm pretty sure that this used to work in previous releases, at least in 7.3.0.2. However it does not work for me in 7.5.1.

      Did some reasearch on the community ressources and furthermore in the whole internet, checked also the documentation. Did not find any hint what might kidding me. Am pretty sure that the solution is close in front of my nose however I'm unable to recognize it ...

       

      Best, Stefan
