We will need to get the site section info from URL, previously we only have us site, then url like http://xxxxxx.com/section1/product1, we can find the xxxxxx.com/, the word after that will be our site section. Then when we add the international sites, then our URL start to have something like:http://xxxxxx.com.uk/section1/product1.
I heard that Domain periods can help to solve this issue? Anyone knows how to use domain periods? Could I use it in data element?
Site Section will be independent of the Page Domain and it can be easily retrieved using the object location.pathname on page.
OK. then I will switch to get it from location.pathname.
We are still in the process of adding the international sites. So I don't have the URLs for you. General speaking, how do people handle the .uk .fr etc in the URL and get the site section info?
The cookieDomainPeriods configuration is used to determine the domain on which the Analytics cookies will be set.
What is the current approach/script using which the path is being retrieved on the US site? I believe a small update in the current method should resolve this.
If you can mention the current approach here and DM me the actual URLs I can have a look and try to suggest a solution
