Hi,

 

When I view preview messages on my computer I am getting this URL added to the end. 

 

?preview_id=8953&preview_nonce=6cf9d4079e&_thumbnail_id=8954&preview=true

 

I was wondering if there was any solution to this? Would one solution be to use the filter tab in analytics?

 

Thanks for your help, 

 

Dave

Hi,

 

These query parameters are added to the end of the URL when you're previewing a new Wordpress post/page. If you don't want these to appear in your reports either use a plugin that has an option to disable tracking when you are logged in, or you can exclude from tracking your own visits using view filters: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1034840?hl=en

Hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.
