Convert your HTML email to Text

Sending a text-only version of your email is a great idea. You never know where and when your subscribers might be seeing your email. They may not always be able to read the HTML for various reason. Fortunately WordFly makes it easy to quickly create a text-only version.


Convert your HTML email to text


1.  Finish your Modern Editor email and click Exit to leave the editor.


2.  Click the "Convert HTML to Text" link.


3.  A version of your email will appear with the HTML stripped out, leaving just the text.

You should make a few edits here and double-check that everything is correct.

  • Any text from your HTML version wrapped in headline tags (<h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <h4> etc) will copy down in ALL-CAPS. This is by design.
  • Double-check that you've included your unsubscribe link and organization name address. These elements are still required in the text version!




4.  Then click Save.

You must Save your Text version it to save with the template.




Importing the text version of your email


1.  From the email template page click Import.


2.  Click "Choose File" to browse to your text file on your computer.


3. Click the green Import button.

Your text will be inserted in the Text Version box. You'll want to read through it and add line breaks and dividers as needed.  You can also add dynamic tags or data fields to personalize your email with custom content.
