forwardtoafriend tag in editor

I'm writing a newsletter in a template with no forward to a friend tags. I would rather like to write it in the text, but is seems the editor is very restrictive.

I insert the tags in code:
<forwardtoafriend>your link text or image here</forwardtoafriend>

As soon as I change back to non-code view, the editor changes the code to this:
<forwardtoafriend></forwardtoafriend>your link text or image here

Is this a bug or a feature?

Hi Brent,

This shouldn't be the case. The code below is what I've used without any issues:

<forwardtoafriend>Forward To A Friend</forwardtoafriend>

For the more advanced users you may also try:

<forwardtoafriend style="color:#FFFFFF; text-decoration:none">Forward To A Friend</forwardtoafriend>

Obviously you can still create these around images, but the code would still be the same. Hope this helps. - Everything Email.

That definitely shouldn't be happening. If you are still seeing this, please contact us at support so we can take a look at your draft's code and test on our end. Thanks.
