Some fields in SiteSpect's Campaign Builder allow you to choose between Basic and Regex entry modes. The button for making this selection is located on the right edge of the Find this box.

Text Entry Modes - What to Change

Basic mode allows you to enter text normally, without considering any sort of coding requirements. Use the Find this and Replace with this fields to enter the text you want to look for or replace within the HTML code of your web pages.

Regex mode allows you to construct the search and replace strings using regular expressions. In addition, while you're in regex mode, you can use SiteSpect's escaper tool to escape either all or some of the text you enter. It appears as a small icon on the right edge of a field in Regex mode like this:
