The Content Editor is available for theme-based Transactional Campaign jobs. It uses a WYSIWYG mode to display the text blocks, images, labels and links in the template. You can use it for editing the content to your requirements.
The Content Editor displays a template preview on the left side, and on the right side, the text blocks, images, labels and links used and/or available for the template.
As you hover over/mouse over labels, images, text blocks and links, the system displays the name and the function of the respective element/item.
Viewing/Modifying Text Blocks, Links, Labels and Images
Click into any of the text blocks, labels, images or links to change the image, edit the link or to specify a valid date range for the selected content.
- Links, labels, and text blocks with a red x marker are not in use. You can use them for adding and customizing your template content, if required.
- Deactivated links, labels, and text blocks are striked out.
Note: Many theme-based templates use centrally configured text blocks and shared content. As a rule, these are defined during the setup and maintained centrally via the Setup option: Setup > Content
In this case, when clicking into the Language tab you see the Text Code instead of the text.
Using valid date ranges for template items:
You can optionally use valid date ranges to define dynamic content. Click the Link, Image or Text Block Definition tab and enter the respective Valid From and To dates.
Viewing/Overwriting shared content:
When hovering over the template in the Content Editor, in addition to “regular” links, text blocks and images, there are also SHARED links, images, and text blocks.
You can edit shared content in the template if you have the permission to do so. This means that you are overwriting and individualizing this piece of content.
In this case, the system transforms the shared item into a template-specific item by changing the Group Code to the template name + hotel ID.
For globally updating a piece of shared content, go to Setup > Content.
Adding/Changing Images with Drag and Drop
Clicking an image component opens the image definition. You can change the image or have several images for different date periods.
Modify the image by clicking into the box next to the image and selecting the file from the file explorer.
Alternatively, drag and drop the image in.
Make sure that the mouse is within the dotted box when you let go.
please pay attention to the maximum size of images. The height can vary depending on the length of the text, but the width must not be exceeded. If you exceed the width, the newsletter may be displayed incorrectly
Maximum Image width:
Header Image, spanning the full width of the template: 640 pxl
1 column promotion Image: 600 pxl
2 column promotions: 290 pxl
3 column promotions: 186 pxl
Changing a Link
Using the link items, you can add and edit links for your images and/or text blocks. The recipient of your correspondence can access the respective information by clicking the corresponding image or text link.
Open the edit dialog by clicking into the box of the link.
The system displays the Link Definition dialog.
Into the Link Value English (Default) field, type in or copy in the link you want to use for the image or text item.
If several languages are supported, type in or copy in the link you want to use for the other target language(s), if the links differ from the default language.
Click the Check Link button to verify that the link works properly. If not, the system displays an appropriate error message.
Click Save when you are done.
The system saves and returns to the Content Editor display.
