When you buy RegexBuddy, you don’t just get a piece of software. You’ll join an active community of people working with and even playing with regular expressions. You can find them on the RegexBuddy forums which are built right into the software. Just click the Login button and you’re on.
While RegexBuddy has a strong appeal to people just learning regular expressions, its advanced features mean RegexBuddy is also used by a lot of regular expression experts. Many of them drop by the RegexBuddy forums from time to time, and are happy to dispense their advice. No question is to tough. In fact, tough questions are exciting challenges that are way more fun to solve than Sudoku.
Any discussion involving regular expressions is welcome on the RegexBuddy forums. Feel free to discuss regex-related issues with your favorite programming language or utility, even if they don’t have anything to do with RegexBuddy itself.
You’ll find RegexBuddy’s forums far more convenient than your typical web-based forum. A big benefit is that they support file attachments. You can directly attach your regular expressions, test data and anything else you’re working with in RegexBuddy. Even screen shots taken with the Print Screen key can be attached directly, without using a graphics program to save them first. When reading messages, you can select which attachments you want to download and whether to save them or open them directly.
The forums are of course also the best place to get technical support for RegexBuddy. Somebody from Just Great Software checks the forums at least once daily to answer technical support questions that haven’t been answered by other RegexBuddy users yet.
How to Get onto The Forums
- Buy, download and install your own licensed copy of RegexBuddy.
- Start RegexBuddy.
- In RegexBuddy, click on the Forum tab and then on the Login button.
- Type in your name as you’d like it to appear on the forum.
- If you want to receive email copies of forum messages, turn on that option and enter your email address.
- Click the OK button on the login screen.
That’s it! Since the forum is right built into the software, your RegexBuddy license is automatically used to log you onto the forums. No need to create an account or remember any passwords.

“I’m a huge fan of Just Great Software products. This forum has in my mind made a great product even better. I prefer this type of forum over a web based one for one very simple reason: the ability to click on examples and have them open in the correct pane—no need to copy and paste.”
