Arghh not dig'n it. How can I view a new account in the old editor? The new editor is like the new social social sharing tool... a wicked drag.
I'm so glad to read this before asking to upgade to the new editor. Having access to the css was one of the main reasons I switched over from . Thanks Reneef84 for the info.
2 years and counting on the basic editor getting better, but no signs that it will any time soon.
Not having the ability to make edits to the html is frustrating and fat too limiting. And in the end I get an email that is only modestly mobile-friendly. Time to look for a new marketing email provider.
Please restore the ability to view and modify source code in the new editor. I use customized tables (which I also miss the table building feature) and need the ability to work with source code! The new editor, with all due respect, makes Constant Contact no better than now. It's overly constraining and limiting.
Agreed. You are better off custom coding and/or using an open source responsive email framework like Foundation or Bootstrap.
This "upgrade" is a major setback for Constant Contact. It makes using the service much more timeconsuming. Whoever approved this should be demoted.
totally agree. they screwed this up big time. much more work on my end. no real new value add - much more work.
Please restore the abilitiy to view and edit html code. It's ridiculous that this functionality was removed. Simple functions like superscript tags are now impossible so footnoting any type of disclosures is impossible.
Seems ironic that you provide an HTML editor so I can edit the layout of this complaint post - but you strip that functionality from the tool that people pay lots of money to use???
How do I use Dynamic Content Variables in a link in the new editor? This functionality seems to be broken.
Is there any way to access and change the underlying HTML and/or CSS of an email? I would like to be able to do things like add tables to an email (something I used to be able to do easily) and I can do that by adding to the HTML, if I had access.
Thanks for your help!
I would like to see an option for example, an Advanced tab in the Editor to edit HTML.
I understand that Constant Contact is implementing mobile responsive design; however, those of us who understand mobile design requirements shouldn't be restricted from editing the HTML code.
To replace Constant Contact's social media icon's with one's own icons and links to each icon. Not doable right now since cannot place three images side by side.
