Company logo block width

If you are proficient with css, you can edit the style sheet so the background of the block is the same as your logo background. Wishing you success

What are the dimensions of the Header Image Block?

I am using the Gym template.  Is there a way to fill the entire block with a photo - without caption?

adjusting the box size of an article block

Hello to all!

I just upgraded to the newer version and I'm not as familiar with it.  Is there any way to customize the size of an article, table of contents or quick links block?  Other than the already predetermined sizes that the template forces you to use?

If you are talking about the width of a block, then look at "Advanced Features", then "Edit Style Sheet". Usually at the bottom are the settings for template width, right column width, and left column width. You can edit these, but save your email first and edit with caution. Make sure your right and left column widths add up to total template width. You could also do some tweaking in the html code view for each section you are editing in the email. But only do this if you understand html code.

What are the dimensions of the Header Image Block?

My header image is set to 600 pixels wide, but the rest of the template is wider. It looks fine if I set the image to 613 pixels wide. I'm new to this -- is that a bad thing to do?

What are the dimensions of the Header Image Block?

Having 13 extra pixels is not a big deal. You don't, however, want to go over 600 by much more. If you do, your readers may need to use a horizontal scroll bar to see your content. Chances are, there is something in your email causing the template to stretch a little bit. Images within the body can do this as can long URLs used as link text. A less common reason is preformatted text with absolute settings or margins. If your email has columns, check their widths in the style sheet. Be sure your images do not exceed the widths and be sure to factor in any padding as well.

Thanks! I think there's an image that is stretching the template. I forgot to account for the padding.

Need help wtih Constant Contact

I've done many newsletters in ***REMOVED BY MODERATOR*** and now have to use CC. It's really different. I did watch the very basic video (still lost) so I'm going to end up needing a lot of help. I don't see an option to drag and drop and yet design my own newsletter, not really starting with a template. So I picked one that looks sort of like what we want to do. 

 

I want a banner to stretch across the entire top of the newsletter in ***REMOVED BY MODERATOR*** that happens if the banner is 600px wide. I dropped that image into an image block and it shrinks in CC to 576 pixels and I can't make it larger, regardless of how large of an image I put upload. So when I save it, there are two gray bands on either side of the image where it isn't filling in the entire image block. I tried unlocking the image size but it won't' let me make it any larger that 576 (again the uploaded size is 600 px) I've tried uploading a larger size (650 px) and it too shrinks back to 576. How do I fill the entire image block with that header?

 

I've attached the image here (cropped to take out company name for now) and you can see the gray image block background. I can't seem to change that gray to any other color either (although I can change other backgrounds in the newsletter but not an image block). 

 

I'm sure I can have an image that goes the width of the newsletter but just can't figure out how to make it happen. I'm clearly never going to get this newsletter out on the client's timetable. I'm so frustrated I really don't see anything in the knowledge base that will address this. 

 

Thanks for any help.cropped image.png

Hi @BillH26

 

I apologize for the frustration you were having with getting your image right in the template.

 

I took a look at your email and I see that the image does stretch out to the full width of the template now.  Let us know if you are still having difficulty with that please.

 

Also, if you are wanting to use your own html/xhtml coding you can do so if you click "Use My Own Code" on the left when on the Template Picker page.

 

I understand how important it is for you to have the email looking the way you need it to to meet your client's deadline and we are happy to help you here in the Community but for immediate assistance, please contact our Phone Support Team at 1-866-289-2101.

 

Please let us know if you are still needing assistance.
