WEIRD URL

Not sure if this question belongs to this board but I get this url in my report with a large amount of traffic and it redirects to a post page with a different (unique) url.  Any idea what does this mean?   /home?post_type=any

 

Thank you,

Hi Clara,

 

It seems that home is appended to each of your urls, please check your view settings, if you have home entered into the Default Page field, remove it in order to resolve this. Also if you want to get the post_type parameter ignored please enter post_type into the Exclude URL Query Parameters field in the view settings. The changes will affect only your future data. Let me know if you have questions.

Hi Arnold, 
 
Yes, I had "home" in the default field so I got rid of it and added the post_type into the Exclude URL Query Parameters field. I'll let you know if it works in a few days!
 
Thanks so much for your help!!
