I make changes but they don't show in Preview Mode

I made a variation of a page and saved the changes but when I look at it in Preview Mode the changes disappear. When I go back to edit the page the edits I made before are gone. This has happened several times.

Hi

 

Do you see a warning in the editor?

 

If your page includes javascript that modifies it, after it gets loaded, you may have to use activation events and activate the experiment when the page is stable.

 

This is less complicated than it sounds, you just need to enable this in the experiment page and just add another small script line with the code

 

dataLayer.push({'event': 'optimize.activate'});

 

which should be called after the page becomes stable.

Hi Ty A, maybe you have browser ad block activated. Same  in google Adwords preview or tag manager debug mode.
