Test a restricted site with basic authentication

Is there a way to tell Optimizely a username/password to login when loading a page in the editor?

Great question. Here are a couple resources that should definitely help answer your question.

Essentially you will want to do the following

  1. Confirm the Optimizely snippet is on the page
  2. Open your site in a browser tab and navigate to the page you wish to edit. This may entail logging in, adding an item to your cart, or completing a portion of a form. Take the exact steps that get you to the page into the form you want to edit
  3. Next, open Optimizely in an adjacent tab within the same browser and create an experiment using the URL of the page you’d like to test.
