FAQ

Q: When is the release to automatic updates?

A: Our product releases are done in phases. You can download the latest version from your dashboard page. The downloads can be used for manually updating or setting up a new install. Automatic updates will be available some time after the initial release. This process helps us provide better support and catch potential lingering issues that were not uncovered in beta testing. The first release to automatic updates will be on March 6, 2018 with any subsequent releases for this cycle listed above if and as needed.

Q: Why can't I update my preset and have it automatically change every place where that preset is being used?

A: While this may seem like a good idea on the surface, things get more complicated when you start to untangle it. First off, it's important to know that Presets are a snapshot in time. Why? Because the purpose of a Preset is to save a particular configuration just as it is, not a design tool that you can constantly tweak (we have a solution for that in a minute, but that is not what a Preset is). The reason it is this way is that Presets represent how both styling AND content look at a fixed point in time. If you were to update that Preset in the future, you would have to remember every possible place you had used it and potentially adjust it or content around it based on what you had changed. Instead, if it is something like colors you wish to easily change in all locations, you can use the Color Manager as that is why it was created. Alternatively you can use a Global Block if the content is the same and you wish have one place to update that automatically goes live to every instance. Finally, dependent on the application a custom class would also do the trick.

Q: Why don't templates include my actual menu items?

A: Menu elements can be assigned a menu or be set to one of the included samples. We don't export the menu itself because those menu items are generally references to other pages. The point of the template manager isn't to make an entire site and it's content portable, but rather to let you make your designs portable. When you use a template that includes a menu on a new site you will need to inspect it and tell it which menu to use.

Q: I noticed the form on a Design Cloud template is not a working optin form. Why?

A: The purpose of Design Cloud is to provide designs using native Pro features. As every email marketing company has varying ways of integrating with their software, we can't account for this in a design template however form designs still serve two main purposes: 1) You can use the design to customize the form from your email marketing provider of choice to look like you see in the template then place it in a Raw Content Element to be a live form on your site. 2) As the Element library grows with company specific Elements, there will be more options to make end-to-end connections between design and functionality.

Q: Why don't I see a preview of Revolution Slider when added as an Element?

A: Please review this post.

Q: Why do I see less Templates in the Content Builder than in the Template Manager?

A: When you're in the Template Manager, click the "Content" filter at the top of your screen. This will show you all the Content Templates available. It will also include any Templates you already saved using previous versions of the tool. Templates are separated by type but can all be viewed together in the Template Manager.

Q: My site looks broken after the update. What should I do?

A: This release involves several HTML/CSS changes for V2 elements. There are no breaking changes, but the nature of what's changed increases the risk of caching related display issues. If your front end looks broken after updating we have an article detailing some troubleshooting steps.

Q: Why is my custom CSS is no longer applying on .hm, .fm, .el selectors?

A: Those generated classes are managed by our dynamic styling system and can change anytime you save what you're working on. Here are two ways you can safely target elements directly, both are on the "Customize" tab when inspecting an element 1. Use the "Class" input to add a custom class you can target with your own CSS. 2. Use the "Element CSS" code editor to add CSS directly to an element with access to it's dynamically generated ID.
