    Table 1: URL Category Lists Settings



    General Information


    Enter a unique name for the URL category that is a string of alphanumeric characters, colons, periods, dashes, and underscores. No spaces are allowed and the maximum length is 29 characters.


    Enter a description for the URL category list; maximum length is 255 characters.

    URL Patterns

    To add URLs to a list, select the URLs in the Available column and move them to the Selected column.

    Click Create a New Pattern to create a new URL pattern. Note: A URL pattern is a list of URLs organized into a group. You can later assign this list to a URL category.

    Separate multiple URLs with commas. The URL List field supports the *, ., [, ], and ? wildcard characters. Precede all wildcard characters with http://. You can only use * at the beginning of a URL followed by a period, and you can only use ? at the end of a URL.
