If you want to test a website against a variant you have to define your original website as an "A/B Website (Original)". Immediately after page type was changed, the following appears:

  • "Original website icon" Original website icon is shown beneath title in page tree
  • In your "A/B Website Folder" a new folder was created with the name of the original website
  • A 1:1 copy of the original website was created under the "original website" folder and this name is "Variant 1"

A folder was created with name of your original website

Place all variants under this folder.

Select the variant you want to use
