NOTE: If you select "Booking Page Version" = Responsive your live web site will change to the new design. If you just want to have a look you can do this adding &version=3 to the URL of your booking page. To see the different layouts also add the layout number eg. &version=3&layout=2 will show you layout 2. Alternatively you can copy your property and use the copy for testing. If you do this make sure all channel manager connections are deactivated in the copy property. The normal monthly fee will apply for additional rooms so you might want to reduce the number of rooms in the copy property. When you are finished with the customisation you can use the "Clone Property" function in SUBACCOUNTS (top right menu) to apply the changes to your real property.
