Making changes to the layout but keeping dynamic content

Our homepage gets updated frequently thoroughout the day.  We're trying to experiment with the layout of the frequently changing content.  How can we implement a test that only creates variations of the layout, not the content?  IE, if editors update the featured content in the CMS, the content changes is reflected into the variation pages.

 

Thanks!

You can use Optimizely to change the CSS styling of the page, which will not affect the content. Also, avoid using the "Edit HTML" option in the editor and you should be safe.

Yeah. As @greg has mentioned you should avoid using the 'Edit HTML' option as this can affect your dynamic content.

 

If you wanted to post up a link to your page, a few of the 'experts' on here can help to guide you as to which elements can be edited with CSS.

 

Also, how is your dynamic content changed, is is server-side or client-side using jQuery, etc?
