How to create your own Email Template within CKEditor


I successfully created my own custom newsletter-style template, with its own graphical header within CKEditor

This is for those of you wanting to know how to create your own custom HTML template when you go to  "Account Actions" - - > "Email Client" - - > from within your Admin panel

=========================

Within the CKEditor folder open up the Default JS file found at...
 

/vendors/ckeditor/plugins/templates/templates/default.js
 

( as of september 17, 2020 in Blesta 4.11.2 this no longer the path.
See the new path at . . .   
https://www.blesta.com/forums/index.php?/topic/10716-how-to-create-your-own-email-template-within-ckeditor/&do=findComment&comment=67645   )

================
 

Make certain to place every HTML tag and every line of text between two (2) commas ,  along with a plus-sign at the end of each of the ending-commas.

FYI - The plus-sign should NOT come after the VERY LAST HTML tag.

=========================

CODE EXAMPLE:

                        '<span style="font-size:18px">'+
                        '<strong>'+
                        '<span style="color:#003366">'+
                        '<span style="font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif">'+
                        'Here is some sample text'+
                        '</span>'+
                        '</span>'+
                        '</strong>'+
                        '</span>'

 

========================

ONLINE EXAMPLE:

https://github.com/ckeditor/ckeditor-dev/blob/master/plugins/templates/templates/default.js

=========================

 

If you do not see any changes from within the front-end  WYSIWYG for CKEditor , try clearing your browser's cache.

Very nice! :D

Just FYI on the HTML-in-JavaScript where you mention adding plus-signs--the plus-sign is the JavaScript concatenation operator which appends the string before it with the string after it. You could just have one large string (contained in single-quotes or double-quotes) without any concatenation, but I think the original template is written that way for readability. I'm sure those familiar with JavaScript will already recognize that.  :blesta:

Hello Tyson.

Feel free to give it a try.

If it works, please post a sample code.

=====

But yes, I would say that the way they have it makes it easier to read.

I also used DreamWeaver to "find and replace" all the commas and plus-signs into the code for expediency.

=======

And thanks for " Voting it up ".

STEP 1 ) - So now you go to  /vendors/blesta/ckeditor/plugins/templates/templates/default.js


STEP 2 ) - Make the code changes to add in your own template.

ONLINE EXAMPLE:

https://github.com/ckeditor/ckeditor-dev/blob/master/plugins/templates/templates/default.js


STEP 3 ) - If you do not physically see your new custom template from within the front-end 
                  WYSIWYG for CKEditor , try clearing your browser's cache.
