  • Conversion pixel updates
    • The old system was clunky and not dynamic at all. It was easy to trigger multiple conversions and you had to hand-code the variation into your conversion pixels. Very confusing.
    • This new system is dynamic and only fires a conversion once, using cookies to determine what variation the visitor has seen - automatically.

  • UPDATE: Conversion pixel updates
    • Now automatically detects experiment and variation using cookies.
    • Uses iframe element.
      • You may need to make sure your server has X-Frame Options turned off, or ALLOW-FROM the conversion URL.
