How do I combine filters unsing the OR (not AND) operation

Hi. I have two filters I want to add together to give me a set of results. I want to combine them using the OR operation (not the AND operation which appears to be the default and is giving me no results).

E.g. "Only show Page Containing Apples OR Oranges"

I have read that I should use the pipe "|" for this, but it is not working (e.g. "Apples | Oranges").

Help greatly appreciated.

I assume you are referring to segments. And you can create a new custom segment and click on OR condition to achieve you result filter.

Hi Chris - if you use the | in your filter then the match type needs to be regex - contains or equals will not work in that case.
