The Layout Creator System / Modular Layouts
The layout creation system was designed with a clear goal in mind: allow people to focus on the most important part of the newsletter – the content – by providing a way to easily create any kind of layout, that works in all major email clients, in minutes…
The concept behind a modular layout is very simple: you start the layout off by choosing a base file ( an .html file that contains embeded css and an table that will hold the actual newsletter content) and then you stack in it modules ( precoded table elements that have 1 row and an variable number of columns) until you get the desired column format for the layout. You add module dividers ( usually images that are blank or have a horizontal divider in them or br elements ) to create spacing or separate different parts of the newsletter content and then you proceed to add the actual content inside the modules.
The Layout Creator System
Now, what the Layout Creator System does is provide you with the code for all the available base files, modules, module dividers and content stylings and offers instructions how to use them togheter to create new layouts.
The layout creator system has two components: an Manual version and an Automated version the difference between them being that with the Manual one you have to copy paste the code at each step and asamble it yourself while the Automated version hides this behind a nice visual interface and it generates the source code after you finished visually designing the new layout.
While the Automated version seems superior to the Manual version, the manual version is excelent to use when you just want to extend an layout by adding new modules and dividers for example. you can open it quickly, preview the modules you are interested in and copy paste their code in the layout.
