Due to an issue with YouTube, inserting videos in your emails is showing an error. Until they are able to resolve this issue, we recommend using a different video hosting service. We will continue to monitor this outage and update you as we have more information.
Thanks for the example but RestClient is not a native .net object. Could you please give a COMPLETE .net example of doing this from a non-user facing system using just native .net objects? That is, probably like many companies, we have 0 need for anything client side; we just want to manage our lists from little internal .net apps. Callbacks to URLs are confusing for non-web apps. Can we just have an example of a .net console app that authenticates then calls an API or two? Ideally the ones to create a list (which looks easy) and the one to bulk load from a .csv file (which looks a bit more confusing). Again, please no magic handwaving about getting the authentication code or "put redirect URL here" since those make no sense in a non-web app.

Constant Contact -- you really need a .net library for this. For many of us, OAuth is insanely confusing and seems like a really odd choice for an API that is mostly used for internal tools (like uploading lists to Contact Contact) rather than a user-facing system. It's great for Facebook but weird and unnecessarily complex for making IT-class apps. For example, we use .net and we simply want a way to create lists and then bulk-add from CSV files. Easy, right? Is it possible to get a .net example, soup to nuts, for something like this where the app we're making an NOT a web app but simply a desktop app (WinForms or even Console is fine). It needs to clearly show, just using native .net objects, how to authenticate (including getting an activation code) then calling the Create List and then Bulk Upload calls. This really should be just a few lines of code.

Thanks for reaching out to the Community! Sorry you are having issues uploading a .txt file. I know it's important to be able to quickly upload your contacts. This is currently a recent known issue that is being worked on by our developers. As you discovered, the workaround is to save it as an Excel file. That can quickly be done using the following steps:
- Open Excel - Click File > Open - Select the text file - Chose Delimited and click Next - Chose Tab and click Finish This should bring over the contacts from the text file to the Excel file, which can then be uploaded.
I will add you to that known issue so you can be notified when it is fixed. If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to us here. We are always happy to assist you in any way we can!

Hi @SteveP245. I wanted to reach out to you about the feedback you provided about our third-generation editor. At this time, we are not able to use dynamic links in the third-generation editor like you were able to do in the second-generation but it is certainly something that is on our radar! I have submitted your feedback about this over to our Product teams.
Also, I'm sorry that you were having difficulty moving around your images and text. There is a layout area of the editor that has a few preset block layouts, including a block with a right-aligned image that you can drag into your campaign. If you wanted to have a left-aligned image, all you need to do is drag the image over to the left of the text once you insert the block into your campaign..
If you did want to use our second-generation editor for your emails, you can copy a template that was created using that editor. However, we are always making updates to our newest editor and making it the best that it can be for our customers. We really appreciate your feedback!
