You can view and edit the HTML for a block by selecting the block and clicking on the HTML button in the toolbar.
Alternatively, you can edit the entire document's source by selecting the Utilities menu and clicking on Edit source. See Edit source for more information.
Edit HTML for a block
Clicking on the HTML button will produce an editing window.
Remember that not all email clients will interpret HTML in the same way, so be careful when editing that you're using appropriate markup.
Once you're done editing, click the OK button to save your changes, or Cancel to exit without saving.
When editing the source for the entire HTML document, you can update any part of the campaign, including the <!DOCTYPE>, <head> and <body>.
But be careful with what you edit because you could break some aspects of EasyEditor itself if you edit or remove the wrong thing!
Whilst editing the source, you can use the toolbar to do the following:
- Return to the design view
Click on Edit design to exit the HTML source view and return to EasyEditor's normal view.
- Insert a link
Once you click Insert, the link will be inserted at the current cursor position.
- Insert a data field
Click on a data field to insert it into your HTML code.
- Insert an image
When inserted, you may need to add width and/or height attributes as these work better in some older email clients and stop the image from breaking the layout of your campaign.
Find and replace text
The standard browser text 'find' operations don't work particularly well in the code editor for various reasons. However, there is a powerful text search feature built in that should allow you to do most things relatively easily:
Use Cmd instead of Ctrl if you are using a Mac.
If you'd rather use the HTML source editor than EasyEditor itself, simply add <!-- eehtmlonly --> to the top of the <body> part of your email, and then save. Next time you reload the campaign, it will automatically load in the HTML editor.
Simply remove this code if you want to return to using EasyEditor again.
