Webpage Version

Hello, After sending out my email to Outlook users, we noticed that when they go to view the email in the browser, the newsletter is distorted (both pictures and text). I know that there used to be an option to include a Constant Contact html in the subject line so that when they get redirected the host page is through you and therefore not distorted. It would be extremely helpful to get this feature added back on. Thank you.

Yes, please add this! I understand that there is a workaround, but it would save so much time if it could be back as an easy option. We were using such an old template in order to have the simple option to view in the browser. Please add that feature to the newer templates!!

Add me to the bandwagon of people who need this feature back.  I've been making two of each email for a year now just to compensate for this...  Completely ridiculous.

This is an essential feature, and should be brought back. In a world where MailChimp exists, I continually ask why I'm still with CC.

what an incredibly typical thing for a company that cares nothing for their customers to do.  Like having to call to have them remove their logo for the email I pay for.  And offer to have me pay them again for an email template when I already pay $3500 a year.  If I wasn't so busy I would switch tomorrow.

I found out by accident that they DID bring back this function. It was in a blog that I didn't happen to stumble upon.


I called Constant Contact twice on an unrelated matter (bigger problem) this week and mentioned the web page version issue. The first support guy told me about the workaround where you send the email to yourself to get the link. I had to call back and spoke to someone else who told me that web page version is back. He proceeded to show me how to find it. You would not know it was there unless you saw the blog or had nothing better to do than look for it.


Glad it's back but not happy to find out by accident—or that 50% of the support people I spoke to had also not read the blog.Voila! Long overdue.Voila! Long overdue.Add a text block then do this.Add a text block then do this.

I work for a company with older computer and email systems and have staff that can't see the photos on their computers without the web link, only on their phones. It's been a frustrating week...

Cannot believe the "View as web version" feature was eliminated from the newest editor???  This was how we linked the latest newsletters on our website.  Why is this no longer available???  PLEASE reinstate it!!!

I'm about to cancel my 20 year subscription because of the change to this G3 template. the "having trouble viewing this email was alwas a part of my campaign and I would add a link to my website so my customers could read the email even if they didn't subscribe to the newsletter. Now it seems to be gone. There is also no possibility of editing with an html editor. I'ts been wonderful for 20 years, now I want a divorce. I'm shopping for new email contact providers even as we speak. It's odd that I'm still able to use legacy emails on two of my businesses, but now on my main business, it's been disabled and I can't make a copy and am forced to use this peace of crap that you have replaced my wonderful product with.


You created a "custom template" for me supposedly it is a piece of crap and I hate it. I'm so unhappy I've worked for about 10 hours to make my newsletter look right. I've lost too many features and I'm NOT A HAPPY CAMPER. Adios, good by, farewell if this can't be resolved.
