A crafty little trick on - use the built-in Split Testing feature to power an "opt-in to my beta" section of your site.

👍 both videos are clear explanations. Sidenote: you should record audiobooks, I could listen to your voice for hours 😊 what mic setup do you have?

Thanks Ryan! That means a lot to me. I'm still very new to this video lark. I'm recording these with a Marantz MPM-2000U Studio Condenser. A generous gift from when I left. (Literally a gift. I don't mean that I stole it like all those post-it notes.) I've said too much

Is it possible to target a specific branch with split testing via an HTTP header, or likely to be possible in the future? I would love to use this to serve different content for the DNT header, or Save-Data header.

I'm not sure I quite understand the question.. "target a split test via an HTTP header" ?

Yep. I just want to serve different code if someone has the Save-Data HTTP header set.

I see. I'm afraid that this is not something we support at present. It's an interesting idea but there is quite a bit to consider behind the scenes for this. Maybe one day, but I'd not for the moment.

Cool, thanks :) Just thought i'd check as you're clever idea with the cookies wasn't documented.. Thought perhaps there was something HTTP related ;) Cheers for getting back to me.

Yeah, that split test cookie thing is not so much of a feature and more of a crafty use of the building blocks we have. When I heard how my fellow -ers used that feature I just had to share.
