How To Test A Widget Without Triggering Master Rules

Some master rules can make it hard to test a widget. For example, the “Limit to one Box per visitor ” and the “Limit to one Box per session” rules may prevent you from seeing the widget a second time when running tests. 

To test widgets on your live site without triggering the master rules, append the following query parameter to the URL:

ignore_lightbox_master_rules

If you want to test a widget on https://domain.com/category the URL might look like this:

https://domain.com/category/?ignore_lightbox_master_rules

If you already use a current page URL rule with a query parameter to limit the widget to a test URL, you can add this parameter in using the &. That might look like this:

https://domain.com/category/?boxtesturl&ignore_lightbox_master_rules

This method allows you to test any widget without triggering the master rules. If you have any questions about testing, email us, and we’re happy to help!
