Hi, 

 

I use regex: 

\.php\?279,

 

for filter of forum, but in the results of report I get also other numers as 151 ...

prtsc:

As you can see, I need regex for my forum that has list and read topics. 

 

Any idea how to create regex for this type of URL`s?

I think if user has seen that particular page in that session, then other pages too will meet that condition as it is the same session.

Thanx for help but last answer is not logical, why then even use regex if a filter can not be set right?

Are you shore or this is just a guess?

I`m afraid this is GA issue that can not be fixed with regex.

Hi,

Segments Note in you screenshot: <<Conditions
Segment your users and/or their sessions according to single or multi-session conditions.>>

Segments are working at user/session level.

Screenshot which I gave was for Advanced conditions applied for reporting not segments.

Give it a try, I think it will work.

Your regex is fine. I think the issue is that you think you've built a page filter, but you've created a user segment. When you apply that segment to the report, you are telling the report to show activity for users that have seen a page that matches your regex. Basically you just need to take that regex an put it in the report filter and you'll be fine.
