EDL URL List Format and Subpages

L0 Member

I understand that for an EDL of type URL, the format is either 

 

company.com

*.company.com

 

This will include any additional subdomains, whether at the beginning or the end of the URL. 

 

Regarding the forward slash, will a URL like the following be a valid entry that will be processed?

 

company.com/subpage/QWERTY/

 

Additionally, does that mean only that subpage link be blocked and not any other subpages of company.com?

If you put a block in for "company.com/subpage/QWERTY/"  it will block company.com/subpage/QWERTY/ and further extensions of this URL.  It won't block "company.com/kittens/QWERTY/"  It's an exact match and anything following.  --BTW-- this function has nothing to do with EDL, and more to do with the URL matching process in general.
