Analytics reports all show trailing double slashes

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

In Analytics reports, my domain has always shown a double slash on the end of any url that ended in a slash.

(there were very few, because all the stories ended in .html)

I never saw a good explanation of why or how to fix it.

So I just ignored it.

Now I have a new system (Wordpress) and a trailing slash on the end of every URL and I'm using a new copy of the analytics code.

So now every url has a double slash, like this:

 

http://domain.com//

 http://domain.com/the-best-story-on-the-planet//

 

I think this probably means there is something wrong with my account settings.

I tried adding a trailing slash on the end of the default URL, to see what effect it might have - no effect at all.

I don't see any other setting that might help.

This is my domain:  http://goo.gl/Fn2VQg

Can you please fix this or tell me how to?

Hi Alan,

I have also seen such kind of the problem in my Google Analytics account. I have used base url in the website to resolve the problem.
