    It seems like you have a system set up to track page views on Google Analytics (GA) using react-ga4, which is a library for React.js. However, instead of showing the accurate page title or URL, all pages are appearing as “React App” on GA, which is not what you expected. Your method to send the current URL when a page is viewed seems logically sound – it should work.

    One potential explanation for why this is happening could be that the title being sent to GA is derived from the ‘title’ tag in your ‘index.html’ file. This tag commonly holds a default or fallback title, which could be the “React App” that you are seeing. Despite your method to override this default title with the current page’s URL, it seems that the default title is being used anyway.

    In terms of the plugins you’re using, it’s difficult to say without more specific information. However, plugins can sometimes interfere with scripts and cause unexpected behaviors – so it’s not out of the question. It may be worthwhile to test your application without any plugins enabled to rule this out as a potential cause. Without more details about the exact codes or plugins being used, it may be challenging to pinpoint the exact reason for the problem. It’s recommended to consult with a web developer or a person with technical understanding of Google Analytics, React, and the related technologies to help resolve the issue.
