The Retour plugin has this setting: Exclude Patterns - Regular expressions to match URLs that should be excluded from Retour.

How would I exclude images (jpg and png) from being handled by Retour? My statistics are full of 404s from old Asset transforms that I used before switching to the Imager plugin.

I tried adding this (which I found here: https://regexr.com/2ukfb): (http:\/\/[0-9a-zA-Z\.\/_-]+.png|http:\/\/[0-9a-zA-Z\.\/_-]+.jpg)

But that didn't seem to work. Images with a 404 were still logged in the Statistics section of Retour. Thanks in advance for any help.


The RegEx is only the URI part; so something like (.*.png|.*.jpg) is probably what you want.

  • That worked a treat, thanks Andrew!
