Shawn

Each Template Builder is made for it’s special template.

Can i change the color of the background image, the buttons and links? I am after a red color and you have a pink color? Just want to know, about to buy?

Thanks,

revaxarts

Hi lucidwebcrew!

You can change all colors within a sandbox file.

Check out the documentation for further instructions!

Hello,

Bought the template and just have one favor, can you send me the code to make my logo centered underneath the “view it online” text area and the date to be centered underneath the logo?

Thanks

Replace this with the old <!-- HEADER --> part:
<!-- HEADER start -->
        <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="600">
        <tr>
            <td class="small header" align="center" colspan="4">
                 If this newsletter is not legible, <a href="#" target="_blank">view it online</a>
            </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td width="20">&nbsp;</td>
            <td height="125" align="center" valign="bottom">
                <img title="" src="img/logo.gif" border="0" height="90" alt="" width="164" />
            </td>
            <td width="20">&nbsp;</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td width="20">&nbsp;</td>
            <td height="25" align="center" valign="bottom">
                <div class="date">
                     13. April 2011
                </div>
            </td>
            <td width="20">&nbsp;</td>
        </tr>
        <tr><td height="5" colspan="4">&nbsp;</td></tr>
        </table>
<!-- HEADER end -->

Also, can you tell me how to import the css into a mailchimp newsletter. I cannot seem to find it in the documentation.

revaxarts

Check out this video.

If you don’t like to use the API you can can copy and paste the raw html. video

Well, I used the import option within mailchimp and it uploaded the raw html from the file in the download folder. Is there something else I need to add? For instance, it is not showing the rounded boxes, the shadows, etc…do I have to upload all the pictures? Maybe it would be easier just to upload everything to the server and use the API route then?

Regards

revaxarts

The problem is that mailchimp requires absolute pathes.

make sure all images have them:
<img src="img/image.gif" />
becomes
<img src="http://www.yourdomain.com/path/to/img/image.gif" />

Furthermore you have to upload the pictures. They should stay available the whole time because they won’t get embedded within the emails.

Always send a test campaign to verify your changes

Hello-

I am trying to remove the date from the email template. Can you please tell me how to do this? Thank you!

revaxarts
Search for
<div class="date">

</div>
and delete the content

Helllo !

Does it work only with mailchimp or with other mail services like Aweber?

revaxarts

Hello neraida!

Sorry for late response, have been abroad.

You can use the builder with any email service. Mailchimp just provides an interface for uploading an mergetags for dynamic texts.

Use the Template Builder and copy and paste the html output in to your specific email service

Hello !

I need this e-mail template in order to promote my clients – which are d.j., musicians, etc. and i will need to add logos of let say beatport.com that could be linked directly to the site. the same with sound cloud and youtube – can i do that with your template?

revaxarts

Hi neraida!

You can specify custom links within the mailchimp editor if you have an account. Furthermore you can change them directly in the HTML .

If you have further questions contact me!

Hi and thanks for a good looking template. I want to create my own ‘version’ but I can’t seem to figure it out. I’ve read the documentation but in my humble opinion, it doesn’t really help.

I have the sandbox png file open in fireworks (I LOVE FW btw…used it for years now) and I’ve been able to export all the slices.

How do I;

    export all the different htmls (in-line, mc, etc.) import it to have it work in the sandbox in general make my own template
  • Thanks for you help!

    Best Regards, Mike

Hi mmikkeeyy!

Thanks for your purchase!

I have written a step-by-step guide in the docs of my other template. It is exactly the same thing.

Make sure you search and replace the hex value #65CACF for the first version.

If you follow the steps, you can use the template builder with your custom set of graphics and color.

If you have further questions please ask!

Hi, I am looking for clarification… Do I install all of the file folders that you say to install anywhere on the server or a specific folder? Will it work if I create a folder to house all of the “one email newsletter” folders in one space? I have another program that has folders named “version1, version2, etc”

i see someone else installed them in the wp-content folder. Can you advise?

Thank you.

revaxarts

Hi purebalance!

If you’re running wordpress you don’t have to touch the installation.

Just create a new folder (e.g. ‘emailtemplate’) next to the wp-content folder and move all files in it.

Now you have access to the builder via http://YOURDOMAIN/emailtemplate/_templatebuilder

Hope I could help you

Quick questions:

1- I have modified the screendesign template to my liking, however, it seems the only file I need to modify is the Sandbox file right? 2- How to do change the background image in the sandbox file?

I’m using firework CS4 , and I was able to modify the other elements as per your instructions, however, I chose to change the background to #F4F4F4 don’t seems to be able to do it.

3-When does the screendesign slices come into play? your documentation is a little confusion.

Let me know.

proch

revaxarts

Hi proch!

Thanks for your purchase!

1: All changes have to be made within the sandbox files. The Screendesign files are just a visual bonus.

2: The background image is a pattern – in this case it’s a simple bitmap. you can replace the bitmap and import your own one. Open all the “all*.html” files and search for the old colors and replace them with yours (#F4F4F4)

3: The screendesign files don’t have slices only the sandbox files. After you change them you have to export them an overwrite the old ones.

Hope I could help you

Cheers

Thanks for the quick reply.

I got it now.

Another question: my Logo is a long full name: Width=600px, Height=90 px; Centered

Should I use the code that you provided in the tread above?

Also trying to create the box effect with white background, find it a little hard to do. Was able to do it the screen design file, but not been able to replicate in the sandbox file. could you help ?

~Cheers,

revaxarts
600px is the width of the whole template so you have to get rid of the date:
<tr>
    <td width="20">&nbsp;</td>
    <td height="125" align="left" valign="bottom">
    <img title="" src="img/logo.gif" border="0" height="90" alt="" width="600" />
    </td>
    <td width="20">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>

You can copy and paste styles from each documents within Fireworks. Just apply the newly created BG, copy the element to the sandbox and the created style is there as well.

Thank You for your Quick reply.

I want to give the ability to my user to use at the most 2 version different colors and to use the template builder to build the layout and upload them to MC

1- What files exactly should I modify to accomplish what I mentioned above?

I modified one version with all_mc and when I tested it did not pull the all_mc html modification.

Let me know.

~Cheers,

proch

Never mind my previous question, I was able to figure out how to set it up for my user. I was also able to make the logo work with the date. :P I sent you a PM regarding the Sandbox file and screendesign for my fancy round corner ;) and I look forward to your response.

I must say this is very well done template. One can tell that it has been well thought out.

Thank you very much for your outstanding support.

Hello,

I am trying to mount this template to Mail Chimp. Do I have to load each file at once? I tried uploading the zipped file and it came through as gibberish. Please Assist.

revaxarts

Hi!

You don’t have to upload the whole zip. Unzip it and upload it’s content to your server.

I recommend to use the templatebuilder. Check out the Tour to get an idea how it works!

Disregard above. I solved the issue. Thanks

I love the template and have had success uploading it to mailchimp. Once in Mail Chimp, I have been editing text and images. For some reason, I can’t change the section titles which are in that great font and template color. How can I change the section titles in Mail Chimp? When I click on them and select Edit, it just gives me the option to upload images. Do I need to create all section titles in Photoshop and then upload? Seems like a lot of work. Is there an easier way? Thanks so much!

revaxarts

Hi!

The Headlines are all made with images. Fancy fonts are not available because the client (which get your email) must have this font too.

Open the sandbox file of your desired version and export the files. Use these files for your headlines.

Hope I could help you! Please contact me on further questions!

Hello,

Pardon my super remedial question, however, it will be obvious I’m very new to this. Can you please guide me as to where I start? I’ve downloaded the template and am not sure how to open the template builder. Is there a particular software program I should be using? Which file to I click on to open it? Thank you for your time.

revaxarts

Hi!

Did you read the docs? They are also included in the doanlod package.

You must have a webspace to host your images. Please contact me on further issues!

Hello I like your template and I guess I have my fisrt question. 1. Do I need Mailchimp in order to use this template??? 2. Or I can edited in a HTML Dreamweaver ?? and then send it in to my mail provider??? and be able to edited everything there??

Thnaks. john, I want to by this template.

revaxarts

You’ll get a Mailchimp, a CampaignMonitor and a standard HTML version. All of them can be made with the templatebuilder (test it).

You can download each version in step 3of the builder.

There are also 7 prebuild versions included, MC, CM and normal HTML version

Hello,

I just downloaded the zip package, but I just want to start the template builder. I got a whole lot of files and I don’t know where to start..is there no .exe file to install a program in which I can create my template???

Thanks! :)

revaxarts

Hi!

Sorry for late response. I’ve been abroad and couldn’t answer questions last week!

There is no exe file because this is an online “program” You have to upload it somewhere to get it working

in a lil’ help doc I found it says as step 1:

1. Upload these folders to your webspace (make sure all required images stay available until your recipients will read the newsletter)

but where do I do this??? what webspace? I have like thousands of files and I can do nothing with it

revaxarts

You need a webspace for this (If you have a website you have a webspace too)

The upload is required because all the images will stay on you server and the recipients will get the mail with the images not embeded but linked

Hope I could help you
