            Match all instances of character except the first one, without lookbehind
            Asked 2021-Jun-10 at 21:34

            I’m struggling with this simple regex that is not working correctly in Safari:

            You can use an alternation capture until the first occurrence of the question mark. Use that group again in the replacement to leave it unmodified.

            In the second part of the alternation, match a questionmark to be replaced.

            Workaround for unsupported lookbehind in older browsers?
            Asked 2021-May-11 at 16:46

            Because of lack of browser support, I need to change 2 lookbehind RegExp to something else.

            I have these 2 patterns which includes a lookbehind:

            1. matches the pattern '(anything not a ')': (ie. 'abcdef':) if it is not at the beginning of the string or preceded by a ,

            This pattern (? asserts not the start of the string or a , directly to the left. So there should be a char to the left other than ,

            You can write that using a capture group matching what comes before what you want to match to replace, and use the group in the replacement to keep it.

            Note that you don't have to escape the ' : and ,

            Safari alternative for lookbehind regex with Tampermonkey
            Asked 2021-Apr-26 at 12:30

            I'm trying to make a script that I use in Chrome work for safari. It uses a lookbehind regex to skip a page, but Safari doesn't support that. It recognises the amazon ASIN and puts together a link.

            This is the original code I found somewhere on the web;

            I have implemented this regex for matching a string for validation purposes: ^(?[a-zA-Z0-9]{0,3})(?:(?[a-zA-Z]{1,2})(?(?<=^.{5})[a-zA-Z0-9]*)?)?

            Answered 2021-Mar-16 at 15:11

            I doubt there is a way with a single regex with no lookbehind or conditionals support thus I suggest the following approach combining regex and additional programming logic:

            Bootstrap form validation - check that field is not blank, and includes valid URL
            Asked 2020-Apr-08 at 12:08

            I'm attempting to validate a Bootstrap 4.4 form field. I don't just want to verify that this field is populated, I also want to verify that it's populated with a URL. This can be an internal URL, a hostname or an IP address, however it should be entered as http://XXXXXX or https://XXXXXX, and must not be just XXXXX.com. My current code (last section of this post) does not validate the form correctly.

            Here's the html form that I'm starting with:
