I know this can be done in notepad++, but I'm not finding the right replace syntax.

I want to remove the last part of this sentence, starting from ?:

http://sportnaslava.info/wiki/index.php?title=User:CisBlakeman861

so that it becomes:

18

The regexp is \?.*$

\? mean question mark itself
.* mean everything else
$ means the end of line.

So we search something starting with question mark and lasts to the end of line. Don't forget to set "search mode" to "regular expression"

Using those examples, it would be better to use something like:

index\.php.*$

Then replace with:

index.php

That should find everything after (and including) index.php, and replace it with just index.php.
