Virtual page views causing problems with view filters

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have any issue whereby virtual page views from a subdomain are not being picked up by filtered views within GA by using either or both of the following filter configs: 

 

- Prepend hostname to request URI filter

- Filter hostname (subdomain only)

 

Any help would be much appreciated, we cant find anyone whos had this problem before!

Make sure the code being used to create the virtual pageviews includes a hostname.  If you created an unfiltered view, that would be really easy to check...and that is why everyone should maintain an unfiltered view...
