Neat URL cleans URLs, removing parameters such as Google Analytics' utm parameters.
Custom rules can be added using the global format or the domain specific format (parameter@domain). A domain specific parameter would be, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A parameter is something that starts with ?. You can add your own parameter in the options of Neat URL. The ? is ommitted in the options, so a ?ved parameter becomes "ved". There are a few exceptions to this rule (see below) More Info »
Parameters can be global (for every domain):
Parameters can contain @ signs (domain-specific):
Parameters can contain @ signs with a wildcard so every subdomain will match too:
Parameters can contain @ signs with a wildcard at the end of a domain name (matches every domain name which begins with "google" and ends in an unknown suffix:
Parameters can also apply globally (first rule), except for a (wilcard) domain (second rule):
The excluded domain always takes precedence. Should you include "ref" and "!ref", "!ref" will apply.
Other valid parameters (exceptions to the ? rule):
#xtor=RSS-8 (remove this parameter - be sure to include its value as well when you are using anchor tags)
$/ref@amazon.* (remove everything after /ref on amazon domains - this will only apply when there are no query parameters left after removing the filtered query parameters)
$$/ref@amazon.* (remove everything after /ref on amazon domains - this will always apply, even when there are other query parameters after removing the filtered query parameters - this option is available because the user should be in control but beware that double dollar signs are dangerous, it might break the URL)
param@*.google.* (too many wildcards)
!ved (this is some random string - not supported, but it might work)
/ref@amazon.*$ (dollar sign should be at the beginning)
