1. About Builder!

Please read the FAQ clearly, then you can fix allmost all problem in using the builder.

This may due to the php.ini setting of your Php Server ( page can not download, project file can not save or upload)

Setting the php.ini file

Open the php.ini, and find "file_uploads", make sure the value is " on ", and can setting other value like bellow:

max_execution_time = 100
max_input_time = 200
memory_limit = 32m
file_uploads = on

if you still has problem in uploading project file, try to set the permission of the folder:

We use metorla( a template of mine) being a sample, please see the bellow screenshots: You can vist the http://www.g[...] We use metorla( a template of mine) being a sample, please see the bellow screenshots:

when you completed the layout, you can:

1 click the [ save project ] small btn to save the project file, the file path will be the folder which you choose, and you can load the project file into page window any time.

2 click the [ download ] button on the left sidebar, then choose the page version, click the red download button to get the final page , the file path is the folder which you choose.

Yes, please host the [ digith_template_builder ] and [ html ] folders into a php webserver, then you can use the builder, and if you really want, builder can intall into local pc, if you have a local php environment, just copy and paste the above two folder into the /www/ , then you can visit the builder, but , the page you downloaded will get the url like : http://localhost/....., you can not send the email directly, you should replace all the url for images which used in your email from localhot path to absolute publice path by hand, otherwise your email recipients can not see the images, so , i suggest host the file into public webspace, then you can use the page you downloaded to send your campaign directly.

Sure you can add plugins to the CKeditor, but you should family with it and js, we did not change the file structure of the CKeditor, you can download the plugin , upzip it into folder plugin, and config it in the config.js , this file are under the folder “CKeditor”.

Sure you can add plugins to the CKeditor, but you should family with it and js, we did not change the file structure of the CKeditor, you can download the plugin , upzip it into folder plugin, and config it in the config.js , this file are under the folder “CKeditor”.

Content can not edit

just Click the edit content button above the page window again before you refresh the page.

CKeditor toolbar display wrong of some module

just click the [ edit layout ] button above the page window and drag/click/duplicate the module to creat a new one, then click the [ edit content ] button, you will find now the CKeditor toolbar will works ok for this module, and now you can delet the module which toolbar not work.

 

The Builder has setting always Paste Text as Plain Text

This is because the text you paste to the page may has its own style, so , may destroy the layout of the email page, and when use paste to edit lots text, may cause the review work become difficult, so i setting always paste text as plain text( control + v / click the menu of the CKeditor toolbar ), this mean you can not paste both text and url and format into the page window at same time, please add the url by hand and change the format via the builder or use the CKeditor.

2. EMAIL TEMPLATES!

Due to the screen size of galaxy, s5 can display the layout well, but in s4 and mini , there are some article to talk about that(released by campaignmonitor)

1. https://www.campaignmonitor.com/guides/mobile/

2. https://www.campaignmonitor.com/forums/topic/7827/media-query-not-working-on-samsung-galaxy-s4/

So, it looks samsung use its own email client replace the default android email clients, and it do not support responsive email, sorry for that, and i have not find any method to fix the display on samsung s4.

Please do not use project file being your email page, please click the download button in the left sidebar and then choose version to get your final page, you can upload the project file any time and re-edit it again.

3. MAILCHIMP & CAMPAIGNMONITOR

If you only send email to single recepient, you can use some professional email clients to do that, but if you send the email to a list, the 3rd mail service mean less spam email, quickly and less loss of your email.

And mailchimp and campaignmonitor almost the best 2 in the mail service market, so almost all the email designers on themeforest set up not only normal html version , but also this 2 version pages inclued in the mail file.

All the templates of digith provide mailchimp and campaignmonitor version, when you installed the builder, you can choose the version and then get it.

4. SEND EMAIL CAMPAIGN

if you do not want to use 3rd mail service, please use professional email clients which support sending html email will, and i always suggest clients not using webmail or php web application to send html email, some email clients are professional in sending the html email, two choice: sendbluster and dreammail, please find them on web.


1. Some Knowledge About Sending Html Email Campaign!

HTML emails are not the same as HTML pages, sure you can view them in the browser and they appear fine, email clients are basically all different, some remove things, some don't show things etc It is a great idea to read up on some guidelines, and good practices before you jump in - here are some useful links for you:

Premailer
Mailchimp

  • Use images properly -

    email clients can tend to load images slowly and too many images ratio to text will cause your email to be classed as spam.
    Make sure you optimize your images for low bandwidth
  • Use a 3rd party service such as Mail Chimp or Campaign Monitor -

    they have relationships with service providers which increases your chances of delivery considerably and they use their own high standards to ensure that your email campaigns conform to anti-spam policies.
  • Ensure that the Email is sent to the right person -

    Always ensure that whoever you are sending a campaign to, has explicitely requested to receive communication from the company sending the email, use double opt-in methods for new subscribers and make sure you have their confirmation details in case they attempt to black-list you.
  • Using a third party service enables you to provide unbelievable statistics to your client -

    live graphs, click-thru rates, what they clicked etc Clients really love this and it adds further benefits, and an easy way to work out their ROI for each campaign - the stats provided help you to increase effectiveness and the best times to send campaigns.
  • Ensure that the mailing list address is correct -

    Take a look and spend some time reviewing your email subscriber lists, try to see if most email addresses are work emails. if so then send towards the end of the day - around 4pm, as most workers slow down towards the end of the day, especially Fridays. Sending in the morning is pretty useless as it's the busiest time for people, sending at night is not a good idea as it can get buried in their in-box.
  • Don't think of an email as a way of giving a large amount of information -

    it's meant as either a teaser for a product or service with clearly defined goals and message with a large click-thru area (or several) if you are using it as a newsletter for information then try to use the email as a launch platform to get people to the bulk of the article on your website with some teaser text and "read more" buttons or links.
  • Follow the guidelines from 3rd party services and you will have successful campaigns -

    for instance Mailchimp/Campaign Monitor's system enables you to place all your css inline - I recommend doing this as it will ensure maximum display - although we have the CSS in the html and everything works - it's best to run with their recommendations.
  • Most 3rd part services allow you to place specific "tags" in the content of your template to bring details in from your subscriber database such as their name, email etc etc - even unsubscribe links can be automatically generated and an archive of previously sent campaigns - use these yo your benefit and replace my standard text for things like who the email was sent to, the unsubscribe link etc.
  • DO NOT FORGET that this template calls it's images from the local files - (Not including sample images)

    you will need to change the refer src for images to your own server - example being the location of an image in the html would read - <img src="images/*.jpg"> you will need to change it to something like: <img src="http://www.YOURWEBSITE.com/digicola/*.jpg">
  • ALWAYS setup a text based version of the email -

    your 3rd party service will probably instruct you to do this anyway, Mailchimp/Campaign Monitor can grabs the text from your html automatically - just check no changes are required. When a campaign is sent both versions are delivered and the appropriate one for the email client will display ensuring your message can be read.

The width of an email campaign is very important. You will see that they are "thinner" in width than webpages for a real reason - email clients have a preview window that is generally not as wide as a browser window - guidelines differ wildly, however anywhere between 500 - 650 is acceptable.

In classic email, always asked not using flash media or video in your emails - most email clients will not display this information at all. Also javascript will be disabled no doubt so no fancy drop downs, menus or galleries. But now more and more people using mobile devices to view the email, so we can use lots mordern effect in the email( css3 / animation / video ), but should do that in a professional way ( do not forget the feedback images )
