[Legacy 1.0] Tracking Dynamic URLs

How to use a wildcard to track URLs that change for every user

This article is a part of our legacy installation and does not apply to our Funnelytics 2.0 Performance Platform

There are many cases where you may need to use the wildcard character (*) to track your pages.

If a section of the URL is dynamic (changes for every user), you can simply add the asterisk * to the part of the URL that changes. The wildcard accounts for any variation instead of looking for an exact match. 

For example, your thank you page or confirmation page may have an order-id number that changes for every order. Like this:


each order may have a different string at the end of the URL.

To account for this in Funnelytics, all you have to do is replace the dynamic portion with the *. www.mysite.com/order-confirmation/*



This will account for any URL that starts with www.mysite.com/order-confirmation/ and has any values after that. 

It's not currently possible to add more than 1 wildcard per URL. It's also not currently possible to have any other match types or use regex for URLs.
