Can I test a horizontal filter bar vs a vertical one with optimizely?
I´m wondering if it´s possible to test a vertical filter bar vs a horizontal one - as it is a very important and very interactive element, i´m not sure if optimizely would do the trick here.
Does anybody here have experience with it or knows if it´s possible at all to test such a setup with optimizely? How would such a test be realized?
Thank you very much in advance, I´m looking forward for your input!
Can you explain what you mean? If you can show an example or some screenshots, it would help us provide a better answer.
If this is a design or layout change (and not a change in site functionality), then it's very likely that you can do it with Optimizely. It's difficult to suggest how a test like this can be set up without knowing more about what you have in mind.
Hey there! Just as @greg mentioned, it would be helpful if you could post the URL and identify the element you are hoping to transform from veritcal to horizontal (or vice versa). Generally speaking, a vertical list can easily be turned into a horizontal list with CSS tweaks. I googled this article and it seems to provide a very generic example: http://www.templatemonster.com/help/htmlcss-how-to-create-vertical-and-horizontal-menu.html
Looking forward to hearing back from you on the details of your test!
thank you very much for your replies! I didn´t get a notification about your answers, so sorry for my late feedback.
As we are still in a closed beta with our page, it´s kind of complicated to post a URL here But it can be shown very easy by having a look @ ebay:
Just imagine one wants to find out if the filters would perform better if placed horizontally (above the results) instead of vertically (I don´t know if "filter" is the correct wording here - what I mean is the "menu" at the very left, where you can adjust your search settings (less than 125,000 miles, fuel type etc).
