Get rid of the url part of the name

Postby DiaVerv » Mon Nov 28, 2016 4:20 pm

I want to exclude all the url part of the name and keep only the part before url's occurance.
i.e.
for the name:
dd(20160625) hh(163602'') -tt DIA TO MATCH Nobel Prize Awarded To Scientists Who Identified The Brains GPS System IFLScience - httpwww.iflscience.combrainnobel-prize-awarded-scientists-who-identified-brains-gps-system.url

end result:
dd(20160625) hh(163602'') -tt DIA TO MATCH Nobel Prize Awarded To Scientists Who Identified The Brains GPS System IFLScience - .url

notes
the portion to exclude always start with http and all the files end with .url

This should do what you want.

RegEx (1)
Match: (.*)(http.*)
Replace: \1
