BUG <Medium>: React capturing traffic on separate GA Instance

Detected on

PRODUCTION

Description

Originally, we had separate GA Instances for Blog and WP:

Looks like a request that was introduced in https://app.shortcut.com/amerlife/story/24457/setting-up-a-gtm-ga-setup-that-works-with-blog was asking to merge tracking into just one instance.

Initial change ( done by César ) introduced a change to load the Production Pagely WordPress in React Blog:

I think probably due to confusion, a Reversion of this change was made ( Tianqi ):

Additionally, to prevent future confusion, I think we should:

  • Remove Blog instances if they're not going to be used
  • Rename Pagely WordPress to something like: "Production: Main Site + Blog"

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open http://blog.seniorhealthcaredirect.com
  2. On another window open GA, on instance: Production Pagely WordPress

Actual Result

  1. If you go to "Realtime > Overview" you can't see active users from the Blog (because it's loading the other GA Instance: React Blog Production)

Expected Result

  1. If you go to "Realtime > Overview" you should see both Blog and WP active users.

Additionally, to prevent future confusion, I think we should:

  • Remove Blog instances if they're not going to be used
  • Rename Pagely WordPress to something like: "Production: Main Site + Blog"

Attachments

Attach anything that can help better understand what happened, and also help the developer fix it and the QA team validate it.

Notes

Add any notes if you consider necessary.
