Change background color by column

Change background color by column

1) I would like to suggest having an option to have a sidebar for the generation 3 templates. This would make it easier to organize newsletter.

2) I would also love to edit the rows a little more. For example, being able to change the color of one section and having a different color for the other section. 

3) Having a vertical divider would also be helpful in distinguishing between 2 sections within the same row

Thank you for the feedback @TiffanyH2015,


1. I'd like to understand this feedback a little better.  When you mention wanting a sidebar what exactly do you mean?

2. You can change the background color of each individual block, which might help with what you are looking to do.  Here's an article on how to do that:

3.  I agree!  A vertical divider could definitely be helpful.  Thank you for the great feedback.

1) This is a sidebar template feature from the previous generation:


2) I have added two different stories in the same row. Notice how, if glanced over, it looks like they are part of the same story ("Membership 101" and "Hops and Shops at Gilman Village"). What I am referring to is, at this point in time, Gen 3 does not let me individually change the color background of "Membership 101" and "Hops and Shops at Gilman Village" to make them look separate from one another.

3) Thank you! Hopefully this gets added soon


Thank you for the clarification!  Makes total sense to me.  I'm going to open your feedback up for voting, but in the meantime if you keep copying and working off previous emails on our second generation editor you will still have the features you need.


Thank you for the great feedback!

I would like to see the inner background a customizable pattern/image. For my campaigns, I use a basic colour/pattern for the main background, but with blocks of images/text on an inner background - in my case, a barnboard image. The only way I can do this currently is to make all of my 'blocks' in a photo editor (on the barnboard background), and upload them as images to CC. It works OK for a newsletter but not when posting to Facebook. Please allow us to upload a custom inner background.
