How can we improve Kerio Control?

Automatic creation of URL groups asterisks based on multiple addresses input

For example, we want to block all facebook sites, we could have an input box in which we would put something like:
http://www.facebook.com/
https://www.facebook.com/
http://sr-rs.facebook.com/
http://pixel.facebook.com

and get a result:
http*://*.facebook.com/*

This could simplify URL rules for large number of addresses to be blocked.

P.S. regexp would also be great.

    Similar to one of the other ideas I was going to propose, but mine is for the content filter.

    Content filter allows regex, but seems to fail on advanced PCRE using groups.

    It failed bad enough with regex that I ended up having to add several wildcard rules instead.

    If they add regex to the URL groups, please make sure it allows *full* PCRE.

    ^https?://(www\.|sr-rs\.|pixel\.)?facebook\.com/?.+?$

    Above regex matches your aforementioned wildcard list.

    Regex doesn't work because the PCRE doesn't seem to accept groups (content filter)

    ...and without the groups, you'll be adding several regex patterns and might as well just add several wildcard patterns and not waste the time regex coding them.

    Matches blah.facebook.comhijack.com too
    Doesn't match facebook.com by itself cuz you required the . before "facebook"
    etc etc. Regex pwnz.

    you can just add *.facebook.com* and all facebook adresses will be blocked.
