Can I Test a Competition On My Website Before It's Live?

You can test your Competition on your website before it's live by installing it before the campaign's start date.

First, use one of our many installation methods to install the Competitions widget on your website.

Here are a few things you can do to make sure the campaign is not visible to the public:

  • Create a private page on your website, password-protected if possible
  • Block search indexing from search engines
  • Set the campaign start date to a future date

You can still test the functionality of the Competition widget from the Gleam dashboard.

The embedded widget will appear like this, in case a visitor accidentally stumbles upon it:
