I'm using a reverse proxy tool for a website that requires regular expressions to capture and replace text on a web page. I need help writing the proper regex syntax for the search text and the replacement text.
So for example, we would look at the HTML page source for a particular page. I would identity the exact characters that I want to capture. You would give me the correct syntax for the regex to capture this section only. Then I'd provide replacement text, and we'd determine how regex might be used to write that most efficiently, such as string replacement.
Solid English language skills are a must. Communication must be efficient and precise to get this work done right.
I DO NOT NEED CODE to be written. Just the identification of the proper regex syntax to find and capture the correct text strings. I will then place the FIND text and REPLACEMENT text into our reverse proxy system, which will process it.
(and as for conversion target flavors/languages, all we need to know is that we must escape any characters that cannot be expressed in XML.)
I chose the "skills that relate to the project" as a way of very generally finding the right kind of person. But this project involves no PHP or CSS. Just regular expressions.
We are not mining data from other sites to place on ours. This is part of an internal testing platform. We are making changes to our own site. A portion of the site is on an old platform, and as strange as it sounds, using a reverse proxy is the most short term optimal way to make changes on the site.
