Description

I was struggling with sub_filter directives to translate pages links and I was surprised that this rule was not working

sub_filter "src=(['\"])(\.\./){1,}/images/" "src=$1root/images/";

Simplifying my expressions I saw all rules using [] were not working. Same for rules using quantifiers {min,max}.

Even a basic [a-z] match didnt work as expected.

sub_filter "[a-z]" "?";

didnt work.

sub_filter "a" "?";

was working

Litterals such as \x<hex value> \0<octal> \x{hex} didnt work either

Is this feature using really PCRE ? Or does it have a really reduced subset of PCRE.

Thank for your inputs.

See the documentation, the sub_filter directive allows replacing one specified string by another. It does not support neither PCRE, nor other variants of regular expressions.
