Pieces of text, images, and links
To be used on individual HTML elements, making content within each editable. This is the one you'll be using the most.
- Use it as close to the copy as possible, outside of bold and italic formatting tags, and outside of a string of text that has a link within it
- Use on 'img' elements to allow for uploading a new image
- Editable elements cannot have nested elements that are also editable
- For areas with multiple paragraphs, make the container editable instead of the individual paragraphs
<div class="block-edit">Text copy for an area.</div>
Sets a character limit for content in an element. Default: unlimited.
<div class="block-edit block-maxchar-10">Text copy</div>
Disables option for adding 'strong' element around content. Default: bold allowed.
<div class="block-edit block-no-bold">Text copy for an area.</div>
Disables option for adding 'em' element around content. Default: italics allowed.
<div class="block-edit block-no-italic">Text copy for an area.</div>
Disables option for adding 'a' element around content for linking. Default: linking allowed.
<div class="block-edit block-no-link">Text copy for an area.</div>
For text where a link is added, Blocks Edit automatically uses the styling of the text and underlines it. You can specify link style options to choose from by adding the 'data-style' attribute with a unique variable name on example links to include the style from.
<div class="block-edit">Text copy <a href="#" data-style="link-standard" style="color: #ff0000">with a link</a>.</div>
Enables option to replace an image. Default: replacing image not allowed.
- When an image in a template is uploaded in place of a current one, an option to crop the image is given with the same proportions as the original source image
- If there is a 'height: auto' CSS style for the image, there is no cropping option; the image is scaled to the width of the source image with a proportional height of the new image
- The source of each individual image can by overriden with the image's URL option
- Includes option for alt text
<img class="block-edit" src="image.jpg" width="400" height="200" />
Enables option to replace a background image. Default: replacing background image not allowed.
- Works for CSS background/background-image property as well as background attribute
- Takes into account Outlook workaround and accordingly matches the image URL
- If there is an additional background property that is outside the container that has the 'block-background' tag, you will need to also use the 'data-block' attribute with a variable name on both the main container and the container with outside property.
<div class="block-background" style="background-image: url('image.jpg')">
You can use email service provider tokens/tags/variables throughout your template as you normally would and they will be read by your ESP when importing the final template into it to send out. This includes when editing content in emails in Blocks Edit.
<div class="block-edit">Hello *|FNAME|*,</div>
The (hidden) text that is shown under the subject line in most email clients.
<div class="block-preview" style="display: none; max-height: 0; overflow: hidden;">Short line of preview text goes here</div>
