Simple Experiment Fails
I created a new experiment yesterday and it didn't work at all. So, I went to the simplest test I could perform.
Even this doesn't work.
I have run the diagnostic report.
I have run the URL Targeting tool.
I went to the Optimizely debug 101 page and though it was helpful it didn't resolve the problem.
The experiment is running.
I see the code base in the script on the page using FireBug.
It works fine in my QA environment pointing to my stage platform.
I ran it in preview mode and it works.
I have exhausted all the things I can think of to make this work. I am absolutely sure I am missing something so easy a first grader can figure it out. But, I have nothing.
When I go to the test page the log file does not reflect the message I am expecting to see.
I have good news. I was able to get this to work. After I ran it in preview mode then it started working on the site. I don't know why that triggered everything to work, but it does. Hopefully long term this will help someone.
