Layout & Design Tool Optimization Checklist
One of the best parts of RebelMouse's Layout & Design Tool is that it isn't just for developers. Anyone on your team can learn how to use the tool and manage it completely on their own. The flexibility of our platform allows you to use it as much or as little as you feel comfortable. If you're managing at least some of the workflow in your site's Layout & Design Tool, here's a quick checklist to make sure you're getting the most out of all of its features. This checklist was put together by our Senior Solutions Architect Lika Nikanorova .
- Get Rid of Used B Tests: After a B test is either taken live or rejected, delete it from Layout & Design Tool. This will streamline your database and free up server space.
Clean up Your CSS:
If you have one page or element in Layout & Design Tool that has multiple style tags in various places, combine them all at the top of the page. It can be tricky to find CSS to fix when it's scattered. That said, CSS set to lazy load can stay in place.
- Small CSS can be appended to a Custom HTML or Header Code element.
- Larger blocks of CSS should be placed in a new Style element. This will help minimize the code and add to the main style tag.
- Large blocks of CSS that aren't needed upon load, such as footers, should be lazy loaded along with the Style element.
- Name Your B Tests, Too: Name your B tests so that it's easy to remember what you're trying to test or fix. For example, a B test could be called "Page Speed" if you're testing new layouts to optimize for site performance.
