Newsletter Editor: How to use dynamic interfaces with custom elements

Using the dynamic interfaces (e.g. eBay, Amazon or RSS), you have the option to import content for your mailing into CleverReach from existing sources.
In this article, we'll give you a comprehensive look at how you can integrate your own elements into your email campaigns to create a dynamic and engaging user experience.

Import of dynamic content in the Newsletter Editor

  1. Drag the layouts element from the menu on the right into your newsletter and paste it where you want it to be.
  2. Click the Insert Dynamic Content button at the right. A new window will open.
  3. Enter your URL/RSS URL Click Search.

  4. Select the desired content and click OK.

Use your own elements for import

You also have the option to use your own elements for importing the content. To do this, you need to create a custom element that includes special template tags so that the data can be imported correctly. Use the following tags to activate dynamic content for your own elements:

Importing a headline:

<!--#html name="title" #--><h2>Lorem ipsum dolor sit</h2><!--#/html#-->

Import content

<!--#html name="description" #-->Inhalt<!--#/html#-->

Importing a link to an article:

<!--#html name="url" #-->Inhalt<!--#/html#-->

Importing an image <!--#image name="image" #--><img src="" align="left" /><!--#/image#-->
Import a price

<!--#html name="price"#-->0,00 Euro<!--#/html#-->

Wichtig: Der Preis kann nicht aus einem RSS-Feed ausgelesen werden.

Provided these tags have been created correctly you can now select your custom elements when creating an email.

If the element you created is not displayed in the selection of elements the above tags are either missing or haven not been used correctly. You will find a sample element at the bottom of this article.
