Anchor Links

I noticed some older posts talking about using anchor links, we have an internal newsletter that is very long and we need the option of anchor link/navigation. We have a majority who use the computer to open their newsletter on. 

What is a work around, can we use an older generation editor? Since these were posts from 2016, I am assuming there must be a workaround since 4-5 years ago?

Does anyone know?

Hello @LauraL0303 ,

 

Anchor links are not supported by the vast, vast majority of email clients, which is why we've chosen to exclude them from the current editors. Generally, really long emails have lower deliverability, and also risk getting partly cut off in email clients automatically. If you can shorten these articles' inclusion in your newsletter by either including Read More blocks that link to the full articles hosted elsewhere, or by making the majority of your newsletter a PDF, it'll significantly improve your deliverability and email appearance.

I still get many newsletters with the navigation option included. Can we include this effect via html uploading?

@LauraL0303 , neither the regular email editor nor the custom code editor can have anchor links set up in them. If you're wanting to use HTML to build your emails, you can do so in the custom code editor.

Actually, when my company signed up, we were promised HTML options, I thought I saw them but can't find them any longer. Where can I upload my own template?
