I searched a bit for information about how to whitelist entire domains or put in wildcards in the links but i havent found any documentation about it. And others that have asked similar questions has either just gotten vague replyes or nothing at all.

So ill ask here, Is it possible to whitelist entire domains in the cloudbot link protection module? and is it possible to have wildcards in the urls?

If theses are possible it would be nice to have some documentation what the characters are that you can use and what the limitations are. I understand that forums are alot less maintenance but a solid documentation about this would help alot in my case.

Hey @MixedWithMadness,

If you are using Cloudbot, you should be able to just add the domain you wish to whitelist such as https://www.youtube.com/, and the wildcards are automatically added. 

I hope this helps!

Hi,

I totally sign this.

 

It does not help much if wildcards are added automatically, because it means we’re driving the bot blind regarding this question.

For example, twitch clips can have different URLs like:

 

https://www.twitch.tv/<username>/clip/<SomeRandomUniqueWords>

or also:

https://clips.twitch.tv/<SomeRandomUniqueWords>

So if we want to allow the first URL format, we would try a pattern like 

https://www.twitch.tv/*/clip/*

to allow all clips from all Twitch streamers but prevent whiltelisting all other links from that domain.

But this doesn’t work. 

We are streamers. We deal with much more difficult problems than creating URL patterns, so please make it happen to work a little better. :)

 

Advanced users would also appreciate the option to use regex here.

Hey all, 

Regex is available to use in the word protection module of Cloudbot. Perhaps you could try blacklisting these types of links there. Also feel free to submit any and all ideas here for the community to vote on: https://ideas.streamlabs.com/
