Alternate navigation across site

Alternate navigation across site

I am trying to setup an A/B experiment with 2 alternate site navigations.

 

I change the labels for the links on variation #1 but when I visit the site the navigation changes between the two different versions. I want the variation to stick for a user during their sessionon the site.

 

How would I set up the experiment to do this?

The variation will inherently stick for a user during their session on the site unless your issue is page flashing which can be addressed as follows:

A variation will change if a user clears cookies or browses and reloads within an incognito window.

Hi,

please do not feel offended, but check your url targeting and change the url in preview mode also. I can provide better support if you like to post the url :-)

Kind regards

Michael

Once a user has been bucketed to a variation they will stick with that variation through their session. What browser are you using to test this? And has it been tested on a clean version (without extensions)?
