Run experiment on page behind a login??

Has anyone else recently had any problems loading up gated pages in the Optimizely editor?

 

I have never found it a problem in the past but today I cannot seem to get it to work, I simply keep getting shown  the login page which is not much good to me.

 

Just wondered if it is me being an idiot somewhere or whether it is a problem that is affecting several people?

I've run into issues with the editor when attempting to load dynamic pages; ie. pages where their layout/content is dependent on session or cookie data. (particularly cart & checkout pages on e-commerce sites). Having the corresponding page open in a different tab doesn't always work. When it happens, I err towards blaming the site rather than Optimizely (usually because I know the site is poorly coded to begin with).

I manually write the variation code and always live preview the experiments I set up, so this doesn't ever really affect my workflow since I don't really rely on the editor to begin with.

I have been playing around with this for a while and still can not get this to work.

 

Having to resort to doing the changes in the seperate window and then re-writing as jQuery in Optimizely.

 

Not sure if they problem is with our site or Optimizely though.
