This section of your admin console allows you to choose a customizable template or to create a new one. It is divided into two areas:

List

The menu contains three dropdown menus: choose the template that fits your needs according to the kind of message you want to send. You can choose the type of message (newsletter, Rss, or retrieve a customized template), the color and the number of sections.

Troubleshooting

Issue locating a template

If you are having issues finding a template, try other lists in your account: templates are list-specific, and you may have saved it in a different list from that in which you are currently working.

This can happen when copying and pasting text and images from MS Word, for example.

In this kind of scenario, you will need to "clean" the HTML code. Try this:

You can also try "cleaning" the code by using a separate tool. Many HTML editors include a feature to do so.
