Hi there,

Yesterday I set up a filter in Google analytics to show the hostname in the URI so that I could tell the difference between subdomains.

That worked, and when viewing a list of pages, the homepage went from / to www.example.com/ etc.

However I have logged in today and the hostname is now being appended to some of the URIs too. So now the homepage has become: www.example.com/www.example.com

I am not entirely sure why it is doing this. I did set up a couple of other filters yesterday at the same time. They were to make the request URI lowercase and campaign medium lowercase.

Any ideas/guidance on this would be much appreciated.
