I am sorry to hear you feel this way. At this time anchor links is not an available feature in our Third Generation editing system. I apologize for any inconveniences from not having this tool and have submitted your feedback on this in your account.
Hi, I'd like to echo that not having this feature is a failure on Constant Contact's part. I am happy to answer some questions about why external linking is not an option for our company in particular. Thank you.
Thank you for reaching out to the Community with your feedback on this feature. I apologize it is not currently available and can definitely understand how helpful it would be to have this feature. Especially in cases like yours, where external linking it not an option. At this time we do not have a time estimate of when it will be available. I have submitted your feedback on this in the meantime.
Thank you for sharing your workaround with us! I would however like to mention, at this time our Third Generation Editor does not offer access to its HTML. Without HTML access users in this editor would be unable to use the alt attribute you have provided.
Thank you for reaching out to the Constant Contact Community. I hope you are having a pleasant weekend. Thank you for reporting your feedback on anchor links. I have submitted it to our team. Please feel free to reach out should you need anything else.
The "Read More" action block does me no good. If I wanted to direct my newsletter readers to different articles - and those articles were posted on my website, for example - why would I use Constant Contact at all? I'd just put my newsletter up on the front page of my website! I want my newsletter to be a self-contained information piece.
This was an incredibly short-sighted move on Constant Contact's part. Do you even ask for customer input before making sweeping changes like this one? I'm guessing from the number of comments on this topic that you don't - and that's something you should consider in the future. Right after you put back the anchor tag functionality, that is.
I apologize for any inconvenience our workaround may cause. I can understand how helpful an anchor link can be in your email campaigns. In fact, I have submitted your feedback on this to the appropriate teams. I would also suggest posting your feedback on this feature in our Feedback Board. All feedback posted on this board is read by our Product team. This board also gives you the option to vote on other feature requests you would like to see as well.
