Selecting images in templates

For the recipient to see an image in an email sent from Cameo, it must be on a public web site. For WordPress sites, that means putting the images in the media library. When including an image in an email in Cameo, ideally you should be able to select the one you want from a set of thumbnail previews. This means Cameo has to be able to talk to your public website to find out what images are on offer. This article shows how to set that up. Read More…

Supplying credentials for image selection

Some WordPress (and other) sites disable their public API. Cameo uses that to display a set of images to choose from when inserting an image using the template editor. WordPress can still provide access to its image list using an “application password”.
Cameo now provides a box to enter this password so protected sites can still offer their images to Cameo. Read More…

Using News Builder

News Builder is a major addition to Cameo’s template editor. With it you can compose structured mailshots from a set of ready-made, customisable blocks.

 Edit the text and replace place-holder images with your own in the usual way in the template editor. Text can include substitutions, of course. 

You can save individual blocks as amended, and these carry your own text for re-use as well as colour etc. Read More…
