I use a separate email editor to code emails before copying and pasting into civicrm to send.

I have noticed that if I copy and paste into source and press send without looking at it in the wysiwyg editor the code works as expected.

If I look at it first the following code is stripped out. I am not a proficient email coder - this is what the programme I use puts in.

The editor is CKeditor. Can I stop it doing this? I have a work around but if I could stop it (or understand if there's a good reason why it is doing it) that would be better!

Thanks Caroline

New information: I think part of the answer is here. How do I override the default CKEditor configuration? If that's right I'm not still not sure what I need to do! If anyone can help that woudl be great :)

  • You say "the following code is stripped out" - but i don't see the code pasted. Can you add some examples, and perhaps explain what programme you are copying this from.

    Hello - sorry I realised after your comment that I hadn't formatted my post correctly. I have also managed to get this to work (I think) by goign to admin console, display preferences, configure wysiwyg editor, email, and adding fullpage = true. I'm reluctant to post this is as a correct answer - but it seems to work for me! Thank you for replying!
