My variation changes aren't showing in preview

Hello  There,

 

I'm trying to implement my first test, a CTA variation.  I made the change in editing mode and view it there.  However, when I enter into either Interactive mode or try to preivew I can only see the original. 

 

HELP!?? 

 

Thank you!

When you interactive mode you only see the original. Optimizely has it that way in order to allow you to manipulate the original page from what I understand.
When you go to the preview page are you sure that your selecting your other variations in the "experiments showing on this page" dropdown. I think it defaults to the original.. the dropdowns should be on the top of the experiments tab in the preview screen

 

(EDIT) I would strongly recommend setting up a test cookie. I've Found that to be immensely easier to use than the preview tool. (https://help.optimizely.com/QA_and_Troubleshoot/Set_a_test_cookie%3A_Preview_a_live_campaign_or_expe...

Thank you Michael, some helpful info here! Unfortunately in preview I believe I've appropriately selected to view the variation. I've dropped down to specifically view the variation.

Helpful info on the cookie as well, that'd be a good backup to have!

Happy to help, you might try a different browser as well or just clearing your cache, both those options have helped me as well. I think you'll find that once you use the test cookie option its hard to go back and try something else. Good luck!
