A/B TESTING

A/B testing lets you create variations for a number of page elements (blocks, images, content, buttons, form fields, and so on), then compare which variation performs best. It measures the number of conversionsA conversion is when a website visitor takes a desired action. 

In our example we are testing what kind of banners would be more effective to get user to visit Best practices page where the link leads. Follow below steps to create a test:

  • First create a page with an option A and publish the page. In this example we are using Banner block.
  • Then remove the Banner block (option A) and create a Banner card block (option B). DO NOT publish the page change!
  • Choose option "A/B Test Changes" under Publish menu.

GIF ANIMATION IN IMAGE BLOCK

There are now a possibility to add a GIF animation (file format *.GIF) to Image block's Image field. Same HD size (1920 x 1080 px) should be used also with GIF animations. Please note that the file size doesn't increase too high and make a page too slow.

 
 

ALTERNATIVE TEASER IMAGES

Every site has a Default teaser image and it can be found in site's settings. Default teaser image is used for example in news lift-ups if news page doesn't have an image. 

Default teaser image is seen many times if there are lot of lift-ups without an own image. That is why there are now a place for alternative teaser images. If many teaser images are needed Episerver takes them from that list.

SENDING A FEEDBACK FORM TO DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESSES

It is now possible to send a feedback form data to different email address depending on what user selects from the menu (Selection element).

When you add a Selection element to the form add email addresses as values for every choice you have in drop-down menu.

In form's email template settings  you can insert that already made Selection element to "To" field. Then email gets a right recipient address depending what user has chosen from the menu.
