I desperately need to be able to have a clickable table of contents in the newsletter I have been sending out for more than 10 years. My newsletter contains 30 or so articles that for ease of navigation require a table of contents that the reader can easily use for navigation. Nothing remotely complicated about anything else is a purely text newsletter
The 3rd generation editor apparently does not permit this. I desperately need it. Please find a workable solution. Or permit use of "old" 2nd generation templates.
I would also say that people reading my newsletter on mobile devices CAN use the newsletter. And the newsletter gets thru to gmail and other accounts, contrary to Constant Contacts claim that newsletters with anchor links are rejected.
Unfortunately, we don't yet have that function in our Third Generation Editor. I can pass that info along to our developers and have them reach out to you via email if we have an updates or decided to add this back! In the meantime, we can always insert in a text link to other articles if needed to help shorten you email and give people the ability to open them in new tabs!
Appreciate your rapid response. In the last week I have had a couple interactions with CC staff and they also said they would pass the problem on. They tried to be helpful and had a few suggestions. I will look in to your text link suggestion. I also seemed to me that the argument for abandoning anchor links is not necessarily compelling. May be a good idea of some reasons but a bad idea for others. Such as destroying a newsletter like mine. I don't need a cute 2-4 pages brochure/newsletter.
I find it incredible that there are not a bunch of newsletters that use CC that do not need a clickable listing of contents at the front. My newsletter is the simplest possible thing with only a bunch of articles that require a convenient means of navigation. I must also say
I do apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. Anchor links don't work on most mobile email clients unfortunately and we want our new product to be as mobile friendly as possible. We will definitely submit your feedback and appreciate you telling us your thoughts! Thank you.
I came across this thread as it is exactly what I need to know for my own newsletters that I send out. Is it possible to have a clickable table of contents now? I know the idea of using anchor tags is almost forbidden given its functionality (or lack thereof) on mobile platforms, but on my iPhone, I've seen enough food blogs with "skip to the recipe" links that work just fine, so I'm wondering if this functionality problem has been resolved.
Anyway, is it possible to do a clickable table of contents now?
Thanks for flagging this almost forgotten thread. I tried and failed to get it corrected. Tried it on Mailchimp but did not follow thru. So now my newsletter has 20-25 items that can't use a clickable table of contents. Laborius to get to items.
Hi all. I wanted to be transparent surrounding this feature request. As mentioned earlier in this thread, anchor links don't work on almost all mobile email clients. With emails becoming more and more opened on mobile devices, there are no plans to implement this feature into our editor.
