You can manage your sites or add new ones under the “Sites” page of Kameleoon’s Admin section.

Sites page

To access it, log in to your Kameleoon account.

Then use the menu on the left to access the “Sites” page of the “Administrate” menu, which groups together all your sites/properties configured with your Kameleoon account.

Name your sites

You can assign a name to your sites in order to recognize them more easily than with their URL.

Click on the 3-dots menu at the top right of the page to name your sites.

A sidebar will open on the right.

Name your site and save. This name will then be used instead of the URL everywhere on the platform.

Search, filter, sort

A search bar, as well as filtering and sorting tools, are also available.

Filter websites by status (Kameleoon enabled/disabled) or by script (script installed/not detected/not installed) and quickly find the one whose configuration you want to view.

You can also sort sites by name (alphabetical order), date added, status (Kameleoon enabled/disabled) or amount of associated experiments. By default, they are sorted in ascending order. To sort them in descending order, click on the arrow that appears on the right when hovering.

Information and actions on a site

Information

Three sections are accessible from the identification card of your site.

Setup

This page allows you to install the Kameleoon script on your site.

Configuration

This page gives access to advanced configuration options.

Indicators

This page displays the indicators measured on your site.

When you move the mouse over the card, an information and action bar appears at the bottom.

On the left you will find the number of experiments and personalizations created on the site.

Actions

On the right, three icons gives you access to three different actions.

Disable/Enable

If Kameleoon is enabled on your site/property, the displayed button is the “Disable” one. If Kameleoon is disabled then the button is the “Enable” button.

If you choose to disable Kameleoon, a confirmation pop-in will open and ask you to confirm your decision. If you disable Kameleoon, a confirmation message will appear at the bottom of the page and your experiments and personalizations will no longer be active on your site; however, your experiments will resume if you reactivate Kameleoon.

Remove

You can remove a site/property from your Kameleoon account.

This action is not available if you only have one site/property.

At the click of this button, a pop-in confirmation will appear to ask you to validate your decision or not.

Edit

Once you have identified the site/property that interests you, click on “Edit” or “Configuration”.

Add a new site

You can set up as many sites as you wish in your account. A site can be a website, a mobile app or any environment (staging, production, etc.) you use internally. We recommend configuring multiple sites for experimenting and testing on your website and its mobile version or your production as well as your pre-production environments.

To add a new site, first log into your Kameleoon account.

Navigate to the “Admin” menu in the left sidebar, then click on “Sites”.

On this page, you will find a list of all sites configured in your account. To add a new one, click on “New site”.

Enter your site URL and, optionally, a name and a description for your new site in the pop-in that appears. 

Note: If you associate a name with your site, Kameleoon will use it across the platform, as opposed to its URL.

Click on the “Add” button.

It takes two simple steps to set up a new site. In Step 1, you’ll have to choose your implementation settings and decide how to configure your script type, your domain, and your resource hosting. 

Step 1 – Script Type

Kameleoon is compatible with all major tag management systems; however, we strongly recommend that you don’t install Kameleoon via a tag manager as it will increase the likelihood of having flickering with your campaigns. (Learn more about the flickering here.) Therefore, when you configure your script type, we recommend choosing “No” from the drop-down. 

If you choose “No” above, you have to select your installation tag next. Once again, we have a preferred method, and we recommend you select the “​​Asynchronous loading with anti-flickering” option. 

You can learn more about these settings in our Installation Guide.

Step 1 – Domain Configuration

Under Domain configuration, you can add domains and subdomains for cross-domain tracking. 

Kameleoon uses local storage to track session data that can be used in campaign targeting. This option is very important if you have several (sub-)domains as it allows native cross-domain tracking by unifying session data on all your (sub-)domains. This list also controls which domains can read / write the visitor data stored in the local storage of your main domain for cross-domain tracking.

In simple terms, cross-domain tracking makes it possible to track visitors on different subdomains (e.g., example.fr and payment.example.org). We recommend enabling it because it allows you to track visitors for all of your domains. This way, your visitors will not be considered new visitors when they navigate across your domains and subdomains, and their experiences will be consistent across your digital properties. However, cross-domain tracking is only required if you intend to use session data across all your domains for advanced behavioral targeting purposes, as it will allow Kameleoon to read the data stored in the local storage.

Note that, by default, you can only use your main domain and its subdomains (*.example.com) in the graphic editor. If you want to whitelist additional domains, you should add them at this section by clicking on “Add a domain/subdomain”. Learn more about domain tracking in our Installation Guide.

Step 1 – Resource Hosting

You can choose to host the application file yourself or to let Kameleoon host it. If you choose to self-host Kameleoon public resources (“Yes” in the drop-down), you will have to enter the URL of your CDN (Content Delivery Network).

When you’re done with your implementation settings, click “Continue” to proceed to Step 2. 

Step 2 – Install Kameleoon

When you defined your site’s URL earlier in the configuration process, Kameleoon created a script to install on your site, which you can access on this page. Copy this code snippet and paste it immediately after the <head> tag in your web page’s source code.

After adding the code snippet to your site’s <head> tag, click on “Validate.”

You’ll have to repeat these steps for each site you set up and use the unique code under Step 2. It’s important that you don’t reuse the same code snippet because Kameleoon’s reporting tools and goals are specific to a single site, and you need to track your sites’ performances separately. For further information about reporting tools and goals, read our article Reporting tools and goals.

Advanced configuration options

The following page is displayed:

It consists of a header, a menu bar and 4 scrollable sections, accessible in one click:

  • General;
  • Experiment;
  • Personalization;
  • Audience.

Header

The header indicates the name of the website.

The “Actions” menu at the top right gives you access to two distinct actions. Click to scroll down.

Enable / Disable Kameleoon

If Kameleoon is enabled on your site, the option is “Disable Kameleoon”. If it’s off, then you can click on “Enable Kameleoon”.

If you choose to disable Kameleoon, a confirmation pop-in will open and ask you to confirm your decision. Your experiments and personalizations will no longer be visible on your site. Your campaigns will resume if you reactivate Kameleoon.

Remove site

Click on this option: a confirmation pop-in appears. You will have to re-install entirely the website if you change your mind.

Menu bar

You will find here the three menus “Installation”, “Configuration” and “Indicators”, as well as the possibility of displaying again the page with all your configured websites: “View all sites”.

Setup

You can access here the installation page linked to your site.

To learn more about the installation of a site please read our article on the subject

Configuration

General

Name of site (optional)

You can assign your site a unique name. This name will be used instead of the URL everywhere on the platform.

Site description

You can add a description of your site here.

Behavior if timeout occurs

You can redefine Kameleoon’s behavior when the script exceeds its usual loading time. By default, Kameleoon will eventually launch with a flicker effect.

The available options are:

  • Start Kameleoon (with flicker effect);
  • Disable Kameleoon for this page;
  • Disable Kameleoon for the whole visit.
Cross-domain support

You can add authorized domain URLs.

By default, any domain will be authorized to load you Kameleoon script and access the Kameleoon data associated with a user on your website (such as defined custom data), which can be a security risk. Il you want to access a list of specific domains you own, indicate them. For each added domain, all its subdomains are automatically included.

Global custom script

Any JavaScript code you add in this insert will be executed before all experiments and personalizations get initialized. This is the solution to add complex tracking code or integration to other solutions.

Attribution window

Here you can set the duration of your attribution window.

The attribution window defines the period of time during which a visitor’s conversions and revenue are attributed to a given variation. By default, it is set to 7 days. Learn more about the attribution window

Editor launching

This option allows you to manage the access to the Kameleoon editor by using the keyboard shortcut Shift + F2. By default, the button is set to “ON”: the option is activated. To disable it, click on the button to switch it to “OFF”.

Result reporting

Enable (“ON”) or disable (“OFF”) the results reporting with this option.

Variation selection script

A variation selection script is a script to force the display of a variation based on specific rules. Enter here the complete script code to use with Kameleoon.

Necessary reliability for the determination of a winning variation

By changing this percentage, you can set the threshold above which a variation is winning.

Variations that have a lower reliability than the set rate can not be presented as winning ones in your results, regardless of their number of conversions. This has an impact on the results presented by Kameleoon; we therefore recommend that you change this setting sparingly.

To find out more about the reliability rate, visit our lexicon page.

Exclude visitors

You can set a percentage of your visitors who will never be exposed to your personalizations.

We recommend keeping a population unexposed, to measure the impact of your personalizations.

Advanced options

By default, Kameleoon allows the display of more than one similar personalization on a page (for example, 2 pop-ins or 2 images inserted in the same place). You can, however, forbid this simultaneous display by switching the “OFF” button to “ON”.

Once your changes are complete, click the “Validate” button at the bottom of the page to save your settings.

If you want to reset all the default options defined on this site, click on the “Reset” button.

Indicators

This page displays the indicators measured on your site.

You can build your goals according to the metrics you measure for this site. We recommend you to configure a maximum of metrics, so that you could target your visitors more accurately. For example: if “Dwell time” metric is measured, you can set the goal “The visitor spent more than 5 minutes on the page”.
