HTML News Letter Format

Postby burnmoor » 11:20am, Sat 29 Jun, 2013

Hello,

When I get to the stage of putting together the actual news letter I would like to do it in HTML, I tried clicking this option but I'm not too sure if it is the right one! Also are there any templates available?

Thank you as always,

Best wishes
Graeme

Pretty much, only the default one.

To create your own, I'd recommend creating a default one specifically so you have one to "play with", ie: don't use the default one as it where.

If you want one that is specific to your site, so that the layout either is yours, or is the format that you want to represent your site, you need to create it.

I use a HTML editor to create the look for mine and then just copy and paste the relevant bits into my own default template.

Hello,

Thanks for that, very helpful.

I was wondering what size to design the template at? Do I literally copy and paste the code into the window that opens in my account?

Thank you as always,

Best wishes

Honestly, I'd stick to 800 pixels wide as we are taking about it being viewed in an email after all.
