When it comes to optimizing web pages to get the most people to take action, pretty much any element on the page is fair game.

How to Test Images with Muvandy

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012 · Posted by Susan Tatum · in No Comments

When we developed Muvandy two of our design principles were: application speed and a simple setup. So we handle images a little differently than we handle text. You keep the images you want to test on your server in the same place you keep the rest of your images – no need to upload every image to Muvandy.

Here are the steps to make it work:

  1. First give your image variable a name you’ll recognize later – for example, Button Image. This name will become the API key for this VARIABLE.
  2. Give the first VARIATION of this VARIABLE a recognizable name – let’s say red button.
  3. Use the file name in the text box for that VARIATION — probably something like red-button.jpg.
  4. Put the image file (red-button.jpg) into the images folder of your website or application.
  5. Then in the tag of the image you want to test on your website, simply put the following code – <img src=”/images/<%= muvandy.get_variation(“Button Image”, “button-default.jpg”) %>” /> where button-default.jpg is the name of your current button image file.

It’s that simple.
