Using Power CMS Builder with Universal Email

Using Power CMS Builder with Universal Email

Hi,

I an currently using PowerCMS Builder and Universal Email on a site. I need to be able to update the UE document with PCMSB. How would I set this up? So far I edit the UE document in Dreamweaver through the UE interface, or edit the waue_quoteResult.php file. Can I set up a template to sync to the waue_quoteResult.php so that when I edit the template the waue_quoteResult.php is updated as well? Or is there a better way through PCMSB?

Thank You

Tom

no, you cannot use power cms to create the email body.


You could use HTML Editor.

on the email page, add an html editor instance, use HTML Editor to design the email body in the universal Email interface, use the Dreamweaver edit tool, and add a binding for the HTML Editor instance.

when you run the page, design the email in HTMML Editor, when the page is sent, the contents of the HTML Editor should be used for the email body.

add a form to your page with a submit button and an html editor instance in it.

add the universal email behavior to it.

in UE, click the DW Edit button. use the binding for the html editor instance in your email.

Still Unclear

Hi,

I'm sorry but I'm still unclear on how I can take my email page and apply the html editor to it to be able to edit the content in Uuniversal email. You mentioned adding a form and a submit button, my email page doesn't have either. Why would I add a form? Can you give me an example of what you mean?

Thanks

Tom

you have to have a form element because html editor must be inside of a form to function as a wysiwyg

the idea is to create a page that you use to design the email body using HTML Editor.

You need a form element to trigger sending the email.

you would visit this page in your site, design the email body in HTML editor, then submit the form to send the email.
