Hello, 

 

We do not provide HTML Code for your emails.  What you can do is download the email as a PDF, JPG, or PNG file. It's a violation of our terms to host a PDF version of your newsletter on your website. You can instead copy the URL for your Email campaign and share the link on your website.

 

I hope that helps!

Is it possible to create an email in Constant Contact and then export the html file for use on the web?

Thanks,
Kathy

You can send a copy to yourself, open it with a client that has "View Source" such as Outlook. You can copy and modify the source code. You will probably want to remove the subscription maintenance from the bottom and change the links. Some of it may be subject to copyright restrictions from Constant Contact but of course the content is yours.

Is there a way to export complete newsletter code in HTML from Constant Contact, so that it could be imported into a blank template?  I see there's code in each of the content blocks, for example, but is there code that arranges the blocks appropriately?

Hi Christie,

You cannot copy the code from a template into a new template. You could recreate the blocks in a new template by viewing the blocks code in the current email and copying it. Once copied, go into your new email and view any blocks code. Delete the code that displays and paste in the code you copied. This does not always work correctly.

Thanks,

Hi -- thanks for that, but -- how exactly do you "view any blocks code?"

Hello @Shoshke-R , it looks like you've responded to an older thread. Their responses were in regards to the 2GE (seen in the UI as "Legacy Email" type) email builder. At this time, the currently available 3GE (seen in the UI as "Email" type) does not allow access to its HTML code. If you need to build an email using HTML, you can find a guide here. If you need to copy several aspects from a previous 3GE, simply copy the previous email and make the updates / edits needed prior to sending.

You can send it to yourself (or a preview) to an account you have in Outlook and do a reveal source.

ok thanks. Where do I find reveal source?

Open the email in Outlook. Right click anywhere in the body of the email and a menu pops up. Select Reveal Source from the menu.

Another option: Open the email then select view in browser window. In the browser, select View - Page Source to see the code.

I'm not real sure if this board is where my post should go, but here it goes...

 

I know that we can host Constant Contact e-mails on our website, but I want to be able to get the actual text in HTML form so those topics can be picked up via web search. Is it possible to have Constant Contact spit this out after we send an e-mail?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello Monica, 

 

Thanks for posting in our Community!  At this time we do not have a way to give you the HTML Code for your emails.  I will pass this feedback along to our developers to see if they can look into this for future developments.  

 

In the meantime, have you looked at our Email Archive product yet?  It will give you the link to your archived email so that you can display it on your site.  This service is available for $5.00 per month.

 

I seem to recall this being against the Terms & Conditions of using the CTCT service.  Has that changed?

Hi Tony!

 

Welcome back! It is against our terms and conditions to post the HTML from our email templates on a website.  If a customer uses their own custom coding, then they can put that on their website.
