    "Free unlimited trial, commercial for continued use" This is kind of confusing. Could you elaborate?

    You can download it and test it for free. If you like add-on, you'll need to purchase it.

    I know this is probably outside the scope of your addon but would it be possible to have a 1-click unsubscribe link that doesn't require login?

    Also, the ability to add the site logo would polish things off nicely :)

    No, that would require completely different code. It cannot be done by simply editing email content.

    You can do that. Open editor, navigate to building blocks -> wrapper table opening. Before main table add code for your logo

    Just wow.... :notworthy: installed and adopted my total custom code (with a lot of CSS inline styling) to the eMails in just an hour, with three different fonts, including FontAwesome for button icons. Something I had worked on for two days when trying it with "template mods" (due to the sheer amount of templates though)... It is so convenient and well-thought. It should have been part of XF core exactly like it has been made. I can sense envy from the XF development team... ;):D

    What browser are you using? Latest IE/Edge doesn't support HTML5 stuff I'm using, but I've added fallback for it. Problem is I haven't tested fallback yet.

    Thanks. About your styles: I've tested add-on with several of your styles, but layout is not perfect.

    Add-on retrieves layout from style's properties. In your styles I failed to find a good property that could be used for main wrapper. That is border around email content + content background. For most styles add-on uses panelScroller or secondaryContent, whichever has background and border. For your styles those properties don't seem to be good sources for layout.

    What style property do you think will work best for it in your styles? I've tested only few styles I got hold of:
    - Adara. Problems with wrapper. It looks ok, but doesn't really match layout.
    - Apex. Wrapper isn't perfect, avatar background (retrieved from messageAvatarHolder) is wrong.
    - Frag Zone. Wrapper isn't perfect, but its hard to notice because of dark colors, so overall it looks good.

    I'll need to install and give some feedback for ya, we've created additional color palettes to control the bulk of our borders/background colors but for the most part I'd assume primary/secondaryContent background-color / border-bottom color like the default XF would work.

    Everything looks great when viewed on iPhone email but when viewing emails from desktop iCloud, the background is getting stripped out and replaced with #ffffff. Is this an iCloud issue and can it be worked around?


    Working as expected on mobile:

    Check pageBackground in palette. Make sure it is same color as your background.

    If it isn't white, issue is with email client. In that case the only solution is to make outer background white for entire email for consistency.
  16. melbo

    melbo Well-Known Member

    pageBackground is the correct. Must be a mail client issue although I get html emails with colored backgrounds from others on iCloud.

    Here's the same client with a black background email:

    I've just tested dark background on Gmail, same issue.

    Looks like white background will be preferred for email styles. I'll add some notice or something like that and probably option to preview style with white background.

    melbo Well-Known Member

    Strange. I get a lot of colored background html emails on both gmail and iCloud. I wonder what differs
  19. Arty

    Arty Well-Known Member

    Figured out how to make it work with gmail - body style needs background value. However its still rather ugly because gmail doesn't show it in full width.

    Edit -> common components -> body -> body style:
    padding: 10px;
    font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    line-height: 1.28;
    background: @pageBackground;

    @Arty just out of curiosity; what do you think the price on the add-on will be when not in beta? at least range would be great to know.
