Testing a page that isn't directly accessible
We're trying to create a test on the summary page of our checkout. However, you can't access this page unless it's via a button clicked on the previous page, eg if you go to www.domain.com/checkout/step3 it bounces it you to www.domain.com/checkout/step1 (even if you have previously entered all of the info in another tab). From 'step1' you click the 'next' button, and the same on the following page, and then 'step3' loads.
How can we load this page in the editor and/or run a test in this scenario?
I tried creating a test based on a substring URL (ie www.domain.com/checkout), but can't see it working.
I also tried copying the HTML from 'step3', saved it as a standalone HTML page, and created a variation from there (which works in preview mode), but when we point the experiment to the correct URL we don't see anything?
Have you tried switching the editor to "Interactive"? (top-right of the editor, near the gears icon).
