1. Make visual edits

On the next screen you'll be prompted to put your website URL into the Dashboard. Go ahead and click the "Start Editing" button once it lights up green!


You'll then be redirected to your website! Once there you'll see the a border around the screen that let's you know you're now using the visual editing tool.

There are a few things to note about this once you've landed on the first screen.


1 : Add new variations or switch between different variations to edit here.
2 : These buttons open the CSS and JavaScript editors (left to right).
3 : Toggle between Browse and Edit to navigate the page and make edits to the page
4 : Our AI tool Dexter Smart AI, provides helpful hints and suggestions for creating effective and powerful experiments.

Once you've navigated to the page you'd like to make changes on simply switch the bar over to "Live Edit" mode and you'll notice that as you hover over different parts of the webpage a box will show up around the corresponding element.

To start making changes, click on one of these boxes! Once you've clicked an "Editing Text" box will appear. This is where you will make edits to your website.


You can simply update the text within the Text box or click on Advanced to see the actual HTML. If you'd like to update the font or colour - simply add the correct CSS modifiers to enable the changes you'd like.

There is an option to "Match on all URL's" - you can apply the change to match on base URL and it will apply to all other pages with the same base URL.

Don't forget to hit save!


Once all your changes have been made and you're done adding variations hit the "Save Edits" button in the top right hand corner of the screen and you'll be taken back to the Taplytics Experimentation Dashboard.

You can also use the web editor to swap images! Simply select the image and update the URL that you'd like to swap the image for.
