DTM: All links tracking as external

I am very new to DTM and am working on implementing Adobe Analytics in our staging environment. I am using just the base s_code, and am building things up a little at a time. I have some basic evars and props working fine, but I am currently having a problem where all internal links are being detected as external (everything is lnk_e), even though the subdomain is identical from link to link.

I have "Track Outbound Links" checked in the Link Tracking tab, but nothing in the "Always Track" box.  Do I need to enter anything there?  I can't find any documentation for what that actually does.

In Edit Property, I have only the single subdomain (call it stage.mysite.org) listed, and do not have "spans multiple domains" checked.

In addition, in the DTM-hosted s_code, I have:
s.trackExternalLinks=true

s.linkInternalFilters="javascript:,stage.mysite.org"

Do I have a conflict somewhere?  I don't really understand what I need to set in settings and what needs to be set in s_code -- and what overrides what or conflicts with what.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Thanks, Anna!  That is exactly what I ended up doing before anyone replied. That did the trick.

I removed all code for the Link Tracking Config in the basic s_code I am using, and set them using the settings instead.  Worked like a charm.

Perhaps I'll do a bit of testing to see what happens if I have conflicting info in the settings versus the s_code.  But considering the s_code settings were not doing anything, I'm not sure there will be a conflict for me.
