    This is a common problem nowadays. I am also getting more than 20% of traffic as a direct traffic.

    As per megalytic.com/blog/understanding-direct-traffic-in-google-analytics
    Going to a non-secure (http) site from a link on a secure (https) site, as the secure site won’t pass a referrer to the non-secure site. For instance, if someone clicks a link on example.com to go to example2.com, the analytics for example2.com will show the session as direct.

    Thank you for your reply.

    But, in forums how it is possible (adding tracking parameters) because the url are referred by people.

    In my opinion, there is no solution. Other persons in this forum will surely help you.
