HTML in Third Generation Editor

Re: How can I add HTML code to an existing template?

guys these are simple features that have been used since forever. I need to be able to embed a code into my newsletters. You guys are not giving me a lot to work with. I cancel my previous email marketing service recently, but now I'm second guessing my decision. Please advise if this feature will be added to ALL generations of constant contact editor.

Re: How can I add HTML code to an existing template?

I agree with ErieBar... at the moment, I just want to insert an em dash but can't enter — (and yes, the default line spacing often seems overly large).

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I have tracked your request on your account for our developers to see regarding the code and also how the line spacing is too large. Please let us know if there is anything else you would like to see changed or added.

 

I also encourage you to check out our Feedback area of the Community where you can post any additional feedback you have and chime in with other customers sharing their ideas. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Re: Re: How can I add HTML code to an existing template?

Hello @Personalabs,

 

Thanks for reaching out about using countdown timers. Because of the kind of coding that those timers are created with, they actually will not function in an email, even with access to edit the HTML code. I'm more than happy to submit your feedback to our developers, however, to see if this is a functionality that can be added in the future, as well as letting them know that you want access to the HTML within the new editor. 

 

Please let us know if there's anything else that we can assist with.

Is there a HTML code view to edit a Template?

I want to use the template I chose and have already built. Can I edit this with the HTML editor? If I am able to do this where is the code editor option located?

Re: Is there a HTML code view to edit a Template?

Hi @VinceK0,

 

Great question! You are using our second-generation editor which has access to the HTML code view of individual blocks in the template. You can find the "HTML" button when inside of a block in the editor. Check out the image below:

If you wanted to use our advanced custom code editor, you would not be able to convert a template built in the second-generation editor into the full custom code. It would have to be recreated using your own HTML.

What about in the editor menu that does not have the html option in it? I think there is a key command that will ring up the html. What is it?

Hello @American_Tapestry_Alliance. This option will not bring up the HTML for campaigns created in the third-generation editor. May I ask why you were looking to access the HTML for your campaign? I'd like to see if there is anything that we could assist with if you were looking to make specific changes to your campaign.

Re: Is there a HTML code view to edit a Template?

Not sure what the original poster's needs were, but personally, I'd like to be able to hand-edit code in the third-gen editor as well. Being able to alter the font stacks, set text line-heights, add alt-text to externally hosted images, etc. would be most helpful.
