How to use Analytics to track a Forum?

I just added a Forum to my existing site and wish to track what percentage of page views is coming from the forum vs the rest of the site. The problem is every Forum category page and every topic is tracked as a separate page making my 60 page site on Analytics now 250 pages after 2 days.  


Is there some sort of report or filter I can apply so everything at /forum is counted as one unit? 


Thanks for the help =)

Hi Michael,

I would suggest you try using:
1) view filters - create additional views and apply view filters which would include forum only, site only and a combined view - in this way you would have both a granular and an aggregate view of your site
2) use table filter in your pages report to include / exclude /forum pages

Kind regards,
