I'm sorry this was your experience working in our third generation editor. I am glad continuing to reuse your templates is a workaround that works for you in the meantime. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns as you continue to work in your email. We're here if you need any help with any of your templates!
Our Advanced Editor for custom code emails is still available! You can access this editor by clicking Create under the Campaigns tab of your account. You'll then get a pop-up where you have to select Email and click "Custom code" in the top right hand corner.
You're very welcome! I'm glad we could help point you in the right direction. Please reach out again if you have any further questions or concerns.
May I also add to the list of things that HTML fixed?
Since we can't adjust the default social media links associated with our account, I have to adjust the social media links every time we use a new template. Somehow with the new editor, two of our default social media links point to one company/group. The other points to another group. Therefore, it is always wrong when I start a new email.
I used to keep a copy of the social media block code that I could paste into my emails. This took 30 seconds and once I copied in my little code snippet, I knew the links were correct at the size I prefer.
With the new advanced editor, this "check" takes much longer and is more clicks. Even making the menu on the side long enough so that I can see the entire social media link without clicking and scrolling to the end of the box would help. I have five different social media "groups" that need to change depending on the email. Even though adding social media icons/buttons is faster, it is not helpful if they are not correct. It was not pleasant getting nastygrams from our constituents before I realized that our default accounts had shifted with the new editor.
I like the new editor when it works, but this lack of HTML coding seems like a GLARING omission.
You sure can add your feedback on this as well! So thank you for sharing this information here in the Community. Both having HTML access and the option to have multiple social media accounts connected are both feature requests I have tracked in your account. A workaround we suggest is inserting your desired social icons as images that can be linked to the correct URLs. Doing this will allow you to have separate social media accounts connected to your campaigns.
