How to do multivariate testing on different versions of forum elements?
So I'm looking to do some multivariate testing on banner ads on my site (Google Experiments or Optimizely). But I can't really give an "alternate" page for visitors to go to since what I'm actually testing is the template page itself that shows on all the pages across the site.
I'm not a programmer, so I'm hoping you all will be able to help me out!
I'm currently using the Pockets plugin — http://vanillaforums.org/addon/pockets-plugin — to put messages throughout the site, including the banner ads that I ultimately want to test different versions of.
Is there a way, either through directly editing a new version of the master template itself and offering that as a variation or is there a way to use the Pockets plugin in cahoots with a multivariate tester?
