How to create page contains

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

In GA, I frequently create dashboard widgets that filter down pageviews by section. An example of this would be...

 

Type: Line Graph

Metric: Pageviews

Filter: Page contains /loremipsum/

 

I am trying to create custom metrics in Data Studio and can't seem to correctly construct this formula. Can someone please provide an example of how I would do this?

 

Here's the real life problem....

 

I want to be able to view all pageviews on classics.autotrader.com that have /classic-cars/ in the URL string. ie. https://classics.autotrader.com/classic-cars/1984/jeep/cj/100789722

You should be able to create a filter that includes "page" contains /loremipsum/. What happens when you try that? You could also try "matches regex" or "contains regex" instead of "contains." Can you post a screenshot of your filter setup?

 

If the thing you're looking for is always the first page directory after the domain (e.g., www.domain.com/first/second/third.aspx), then you can use page path 1 in your filter instead of page.
