Inserting HTML coding into an email

Hello!

 

I am asking for advice on how to insert HTML code into an email? We are a no-profit and it appears there is no where for me to put my coding. 

 

Thank you.

Hi @BBBSLR

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! The good news is you can insert your own HTML in a Custom Code Campaign. You can access this Custom Code Editor through the Create button under your Campaigns tab.

Once you click Create, you will get a pop-up where you must select Email.

This will then bring you to our template selector where you can choose Custom Code.

Thanks but this doesn't say what to do after step 4. 

Is it necessary to use a template this way to get the HTML link or is it possible to create a HTML link for an email that was created through your regular templates?

Hi @Adrianne. I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. If you are looking for the coding for a Constant Contact campaign that was created in your account, this is not accessible to our customers. Please let us know if you are looking for something different.

I think the question is, how do I insert an HTML code segment into an existing campaign email ... it seems Constant Contact doesn't offer this feature as does ... why is that? I just want to see the HTML code for my email and edit that code / insert an HTML segment into the HTML of the existing email without creating an entire HTML email.

just like you can in ..
