I'm taking the "Use your own html" route and in our last e-newsletter, the default social share links and view in browser link were in the pre-header, but now they seem to have been redesigned and moved down to the footer. The problem is that this will likely lead many Outlook users to use Outlook's "view in browser" feature, which kills the formatting. The link in the footer leads to a browser version that looks great, so that's the one I'd like to see up top. Am I missing something obvious? Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you. Unfortunately we can't wait for the 4-5 day lead time so I'd like to try a workaround. If I include just the view online link at the top of the body content that I can edit, is there a tag for that online version link?

You can use the tag [%webview_url%] to include that "view online" link in the header of your email!

Now the WYSIWYG editor is giving me this error when I try to use that tag:
  • Unknown tag name `webview_url`.
This error is keeping me from testing and sending. Any way to get around this?

I had the same issue. For anyone else looking at this, the proper tag is [% webview_url %]. Be sure to include those spaces!

Got it--it was just missing some little ol' spaces!

For the record,  my company also would prefer that the share for recipients be up top on the email template rather than in the footer.  It makes it more prominent and allows better recipient sharing, which Emma users all want.  Your template design team should have a choice for whether to put the share buttons at the top or the bottom of the available email templates.
