We disabled "Disable the force variation parameter" under settings and added the id etc.

 

Please can someone advise urgently.

 

Thanks.

Nikki,

As mentioned in the other thread you started, I think the RL you want ot use is this:

Using the force parameter of a puased/draft experiment on page other than where the experiment runs will not let you preview the variation.

 

It seems like you trying to update the images in a javascript controlled carousel.  Typically, this doesn't work too well because the code that creates and manages navigation in the carousel runs on the original HTML of the page and you are destroying that HTML and replacing it with something that did not exist when the carousel was initiated.


For this, you may want to consider either:

1- creating a new version of the page with the changes and redirect 50% of users from the control version to the new page

2- have your developer build the code you would need to destory the existing carousel, insert new HTML, and initialize the carousel with the new images.
