      Hello,

      I am using your Youtubomatic plugin to pull Youtube videos and publish them as posts on my website. It works great for this.

      It is able to take the entire video description on Youtube and add it to the post. However, Youtube posts often have a description of the video then a large amount of template text at the bottom of the video description. It will usually have social media links or disclaimers which are not desired in my website posts.

      Is there a way for Youtubomatic to be able to filter out this text based on a specified word / phrase?

      Here is an example video description (below). If I could specify the phrase “★Follow Exodus on Social Media★” to Youtubomatic, then it would know to delete this phrase and any text after it. So the video description would change as follows.

      <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>BEFORE</span>

      Hello,

      First of all, thank you for your purchase.

      What you request was not possible until now, however, I updated the plugin to v2.6.2 and added two new settings fields in importing rule settings:

      ‘Run Regex On Content’ and ‘Replace Matches From Regex’

      Using these, you will be able to write Regex expressions to match, replace and remove content from the imported video description.

      You can use this example expression to remove everything that is located after “Follow Exodus on Social Media”:

      Follow Exodus on Social Media[\s\S]+

      This should be added in the ‘Run Regex On Content’ settings field.

      Thank you so much! This was exactly what I needed. I appreciate you putting together the regex expression for me as well. Your plugins are great!
