I'm afraid my regex skills are lacking. Can someone help me write a regex for these two URLs?

 

/plays/evt_detail.aspx?id=438

/events/c-s-lewis-onstage/

Test with the following instead then
\/(plays\/evt_detail\.aspx\?id\=438)|(events\/c\-s\-lewis\-onstage\/)

Hi :-)
Do you just need a seperate regex for each one..
or do you need them in a single regex..
or.. something else?

If you simply need a seperate regex for each one:
\/plays\/evt_detail\.aspx\?id\=438
\/events\/c\-s\-lewis\-onstage\/

Single regex-- we launched a new version of our website and I need these two pages to pull in the same report.
