Can i disable mautic email "code auto correction"

Im having quite some trouble with mautic 2.0 email editor feature.



Firstly, emails created in the previous mautic 1.0 would show up as blank, but its still there… just in the editor its blank.



If i created it in mautic 2.0, then the emails are “auto corrected” but in reality do screw up a lot of things like adding extraneous
each time i save the email in various areas, most particularly i noticed before

tags. Additionally responsiveness is bad with the auto corrected emails, and i lose columns that have 2 or more columns. Also images are distorted, and even stripped out.



I have attached the code before and after for my emails, and you can open them in a browser to see what mautic did to them… i do understand the code needs a little auto corrections to work with your editing tools, but any way i could have a workaround?

I checked your sample emails are also not responsive btw.

I tried my very best to get my template working with mautic 2.0.1 but still have some issues perhaps the template gurus here might help. Would help the community too as the template could be used by someone else.

This is the file thats modified so far

However in mobile there are some quirks that I cant solve

  1. The column width for this is forced to get narrow in mobile view
  2. and 3) The icons get smaller and smaller towards the right although the code is exactly the same
  3. A “?” is being appended at the back of the “unsubscribe text” I cant find it anywhere… so i think it might be a bug

My original codes were a 2 column 2 row design on desktops which in mobile becomes single column 4 rows. But in Mautic, my code is being modified to become single column 4 rows regardless the view size.

After

I tried to force it to a 2 by 2, but when in mobile responsiveness of the emails is broken.

Could anyone help please?

Anyone pleaseeee… the email editor is totally unusable for good email templates that are responsive.

There is a PR which will come with Mautic 2.1.0 and contains various fixes for the editor: https://github.com/mautic/mautic/pull/2032

wonderful… any idea when that might be?

so should i just implement these fixes now?

2.0.1 should be released within 14 days if all the tests will go smoothly. If you can apply the fixes and help us test the above, it’d be great. BTW, this month you can even win some prizes for PR tests:

Make sure to leave the comment bellow the PR how the test went.

Hi,

Love Mautic. Just got it installed 3 weeks ago. And was going to launch a bug campaign tomorrow. However I’m having the same problem building responsive mails, using these instructions: http://templates.mailchimp.com/development/responsive-email/fluid-images/. However Mautic keeps changing the “width: 100%” style attribute to the size of the image meaning that the result is not responsive.

I’m using Mautic 2.1.1 so it’s still not fixed.

A huge amount of users view emails on the mobile, and since emails is a huge part of Mautic, doesn’t it have quite a high priority to make responsive mails possible?

Also is there workaround to use?

This particular bug will be fixed in Mautic 2.2.0 which will come out very soon.
