Edit And Customize Email Template With Campaign Monitor

Mailerstock builds the email newsletters compatible with trending email service, Campaign Monitor. Campaign Monitor is an email platform that provides the tool to edit, customize and send the email newsletter.

Campaign monitor enables the user to edit text and image content. You can duplicate and delete any module from the template.

The Campaign-Monitor integrated files of our templates can be found in the /campaign-monitor folder.

This folder has the same structure as the standalone files from the /HTML folder, only that all files inside it are editable or ready to use with Campaign Monitor:

Limitations and Other Notes

Most visual email builders are limited in functionality, meaning they don’t or can’t allow fine-tuned control over the template as if you were to manually edit the HTML code. That being said, please take the following into account.

Conflicting Browser Plugins

The Grammarly browser plugin severely affects online email editors, including Campaign Monitor. By injecting itself into the page, it corrupts email HTML, resulting in a broken template.

Please disable any plugins such as Grammarly or Adblock when using an online email builder.

As a rule of thumb, we recommend disabling any plugins that manipulate content on a web page when using any of the integrations provided with our email templates.

Background Images

Campaign Monitor currently offers no support when it comes to editing background images. You need to manually edit the template code before uploading to Campaign Monitor.

Outlook Background Images

Same as with the above, Campaign Monitor does not fill in the URL for the image in the from the VML code. You also need to do this manually, by editing the template HTML code.

To edit background images manually for Outlook, follow article-

Setting a Background Image for Outlook Version of Email

Setting a background image just like Campaign Monitor’s visual editor does not update this code. Outlook will not show the correct image unless you manually edit the HTML.
