TEST NEWSLETTER IN EMAIL CLIENT/ BROWSER VIEWER
Help is needed to test a PHPlist html newsletter in email clients and browsers so it renders properly in all. The draft newsletter displays perfectly in some clients and browsers already. You will use my Email on Acid account to view how the newsletter displays in different email clients and browsers then make code adjustments in PHPlist and the source code. Email on Acid tells you what parts of the code are causing viewing problems. This should be straightforward and easy for someone who is experienced. You have 4 additional Email on Acid testing credits to view the newsletter in all email clients and browsers and unlimited tests from phplist.
ADD CONTENT LAYOUT TO NEWSLETTER TEMPLATE
A plugin called PBTS has been added to PHPlist so that you can create reusable templates with multiple content regions.
At the moment the newsletter test uses a header and footer and the html code has been pasted directly in the content section of PHPlist to generate a newsletter that looks like one I customised from a Mailchip template in Dreamweaver. As mentioned it displays perfectly in some browsers.
We would like the layout of the content section to be added to the header and footer in the template so it is a reusable multiple content newsletter template.
My understanding is that this will involve adding PBTS tags to the content/template code to engage the PBTS plugin and enabling a visual editor for editing the template for future newsletters (at the moment PHPlist standard code editor is showing). There may be some troubleshooting to ensure the visual editor works with the PBTS tags in the content otherwise this should be straight forward and simple. The plugin and functions of PHPlist and the sql database list have been tested and errors have been investigated and fixed since the plugin was installed in a previous project to get the newsletter running.
The goal of this project is the completion of a reusable newsletter template in PHPlist which includes multiple content regions and is fully tested across email clients and browsers to display consistently.
This outcome is over 90% complete at this stage and is urgent. Short project times and quick starting times are valued.
