Need help : How to filter more keywords ?

Hello everyone and thank you in advance to share your knowledge with me.

I did a lot of research to see how to fix my problem but i didn't find anything useful. My problem : I want to filter like 200 words.

I tried to creat a filter item but i can't put so many words on it (and i don't want to spend all my day to put all my words in 20 filter items). I tried this : http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.edit?_id=nn3l6Nbn3BGlp2OU9YS63A as an example but this example doesn't seem to work properly :(

For those who can help me, here is the link of my pipe : http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.edit?_id=d3655234eebad7e6eda6e1f1f84db344

I know it's possible, please help me ! :)

All the best

  • Have a look at this:

    FOR FORUM - RSS Keyword Filter http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=08c22f5c89b8ceb010e8724b9a75fdf4

    it uses regex (regular expressions).


    (?i) is case insensitive.

    The | mean "or".

    The \b are word boundaries. example


    Only matches "cat".


    Matches cat anywhere in a word: dislocate, cats, category, etc.

  • Thank you very much, I will test it :)

  • Okay one step further to my goal :) It's actually working well in the debugger but not when i'm running the pipe ...

    Example using your keyword filter : http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.edit?_id=08c22f5c89b8ceb010e8724b9a75fdf4

    In the debbuger, I see 2 results but when i'm running the pipe "No pipe results".

    With my current level in yahoo pipes, I can only say that the box where I have to enter my keywords doesn't accept \b or | .

    Someone have an idea to solve my problem ? Thank you very much for your help

  • you have your regex in the debug input. you need to move it to "default" or enter your own regex at run time. if it will never change just put the regex into the filter module instead of linking the input box.

    thanks -paul

  • Hi, Thanks for your prompt response but it actually doesn't work :(

    I can't use the filter module because I need to filter more than 10 keywords (approx 300 keywords). I did what you say but even in "default", the pipe show results in the debugger mode but not when i'm running the pipe :(

    Here's the link of my pipe : http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.edit?_id=e3a87ce47dd1ccf3fcd0ee60d23c4f4a

    Please help me, i'm soooo close :( Thank you in advance.
