why don't you allow valid html? arpreach doesn't even include an opening html and body tag.
when adding your own, it removes them.
this is important for deliverability and rendering across all devices.
before anybunny questions the deliverability aspect, realize i'm good friends with the heads of deliverability for some of the top esps in the world among other things. just so you know.
not the end of the world on that front but still good to have. rendering is huge.
please provide valid html, access, or give us the ability to add our own.
Re-reading this thread...
if I do not use the visual editor, but merely paste in my code then hit "preview" do you think I'll get what I expect?
Is it the visual editor that's messing up the rendering?
I've noticed some weird stuff happening and things moving around, fonts changing and whatnot, if I simply click while the visual editor is open.
Been working an email designer today and we've discovered the only way to keep an email responsive is to paste the entire finished code into the empty editor box from an external editor.
Changing even one tiny thing inside the editor causes the code to change, changing hyperlink colours, responsiveness, etc.
MailChimp doesn't do this. My designer hypothesises it's because the editor is older than the latest html capability. Is there any plan to upgrade the editor at any point? If MailChimp can offer it, clearly the technology is available.
TinyMCE to stop destroying valid html code, I wish they would just put in something else entirely or give the option to a better one. If the editor destroys valid html, it is clearly not the best nor nearly the best.
We used php-superwebmailer for many years and did not suffer from tinymce behavior. CKeditor leaves all the HTML code like it is.
So this is a feature request to add ckeditor to arpReach and give users a choice to opt for one or the other in the system settings.
