Hello,

 

Trying to set up Site Search categories. According to online guides my category parameters should be cat,post_type however inputting that into Analytics stops all internal search data from coming in.

 

These are the two search URLs I need parameters from:

/?s&cat=25

/?s&post_type=qna

 

What do I need to do differently? Thanks!

may be because the search parameter is blank in the url.

Hi Amulya,


Thank you very much for your reply. I don't quite understand, if it is blank then how do I find it?

 

In this example:

/?s=wolf&cat=32&post_type=post

The resulting page displays my search term, wolf, and shows that I have selected two filters that are part of internal search.

 

I know the query parameter = s

What is the category parameter?

Hi jrosell,

 

Strip URL is unchecked, and there are no filters that would be affecting this either. I verified through Real Time reports that Analytics is tracking page /?s=wolf&cat=32&post_type=post so I know that is working. Any ideas? Thanks!
