Maybe I only could not figure out how to...

but using a wild card in segment editor ->actions/url would be very handy

1) wildcard at the end of an url
would make it possible to track/filter all pages "below" one url segment
e.g. show in a shop all products and all subcategories and their products
www.theshop.com/cakes/WILDCARD

2) wild card in front of an url
would make it possible to use url segments on different websites
(with similar site structure)
e.g. to show all customers who logged in in the customer backend
WILDCARD/customer/WILDCARD
for
www.theshop.de/customer/
www.theshop.com/customer/
Keywords: url, segment editor

of course the possibility to use wildcards would be handy for several other segment types...

You can use the "CONTAINS" clause to have a similar functionnality

Hello,

Wondering if wildcards got any go since 2014. Basically, I'm looking to include in the segment URLs which are in the form of www.example.com/* but not www.example.com/ - meaning all the subdirectories and files but not the root.

Maybe you can use "CONTAINS" XYZ/ AND "IS NOT" XYZ

@dmitrizzle commented on September 8th 2015

That's still not possible where the website adds trailing slashes by default:
All URLs will redirect from website.com/url to website.com/url/
And all canonicals are set to website.com/url/

The only way to achieve that at the moment as far as I can understand is to use "CONTAINS" for all letters of alphabet and numbers :(

@dmitrizzle if there is a common need that is difficult to do with "Contains / does not contain", a new feature could be added. Do you mind creating a new issue, with what you are trying to achieve and how the current Segment editor is not working well?
