Discourse and main subdomain site analytics question

(Brock) #1

I hope someone who is an expert at Google Tag Manager & Google Analytics may be able to help answer this question…

I followed these instructions to set up my GA within GTM for our Discourse site (which is at the subdomain, https://discussions.ftw.in)

My question is: do I need to set an exception for our default GA site tag within GTM to to exclude our Discourse subdomain? Or set the trigger described in the instructions above (“virtualPageView”) to only trigger if the hostname begins with our Discourse subdomain?

Thanks in advance
