When I create a new style for a given page, like here:
Stylebot Options

How can I make the style apply only to the home page of that site?

  • http://superuser.com should be affected.
  • http://superuser.com/questions shouldn't be affected.

Short answer

You can't right now.

Long answer

Stylebot support 2 methods of matching a style against a given URL.

  • Simple substring matching
  • Something that looks like a pattern matching approach

You can get into the second mode by putting a * anywhere in the URL. But the only option that this enables you, is to use the placeholder *. The star means any amount of any character and is as useless as the night is dark.

This is especially mind-boggling because the extension is perfectly equipped to use the pattern as a regular expression, but intentionally doesn't.

Feel free to use my own fork that removes this limitation.
