Tips for using the two column newsletter

  • Please note that when you untick the ‘show title’ box and choose for a title not to be displayed, it will not appear in the ‘In this issue’ section

Unticking the 'show title' box

  • In this template, the anchoring system is slightly different. Any links within the ‘In this issue’ content type direct you to view the article on a microsite, rather than leading you down the page. They may also link directly to a URL you have inserted
  • When viewing the microsite, you may notice that the ‘In this issue’ content type remains on the left

Simple template

  • Recommended template for briefings or staff announcements when a more serious tone is suitable
  • Available in only 1 colour theme and not flexible for customisation
  • Designed to use most Poppulo "drag and drop components", but there are restrictions on the use of images
  • In this template, ensure all text formatting is in line with the design template by using the ‘remove formatting’ button
  • No image will appear in the articles even though the template calls it 'one column articles A - Image Left'
