implementing optimizely with launchrock

I am trying to implement optimizely with launchrock.


Lauchrock allows you to add code to the body and via js and css, but not the header.

Our Launchrock page is forwarded onto our domain name. our domain is and launchrock forwards our launch page to


I added the snipit of code at the top of my body.


I have also added the snipit via js with this code:

(function() {
    var s = document.createElement('script');
    s.type = "text/javascript";
    s.async = true;
    var d = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0];


when I check my console at and type in optimizely it recognizes an object:

Object {$: function, activeExperiments: Array[0], allExperiments: Object, all_experiments: Object, allVariations: Object…}


However, when I try to create an experiment it still says:

I cant seem to find a solution for this and we really need to AB Test our signup page.

Hey fellow @Brian ,


Thanks for reaching out to us with your question!


One thing I'd like to confirm - are you implementing the snippet twice onto your page or are you highlighting the code you had used to implement the snippet? It looks like you are loading the snippet asynchronously which can lead to some flashing / flickering as original content is able to load onto your page before the Optimizely snippet executes experimental changes. However, this seems a bit unavoidable as you are only able to implement code within the body of your webpage through this CMS.


Regarding the compatibility mode, this can be resolved by loading mixed content when loading your site into the Optimizely editor. This entire process is covered in full here:
