I'm a newby here. Trying to get my first campaign out, and am stuck with this html coding problem. To get the bulk of the (below) code, I plugged my text into Squarespace' wysiwyg editor, copied the html, then modified the two IMAGE areas (this is my problem). Could you possibly take a quick look and let me know what the problem is with my IMAGE coding below??
Looking forward to learning (a little).
thanks in advance,

Hi Robin, welcome to the forums! The images are not showing up because the <img> tags in the code are pointing to images presumably being hosted on Squarespace (and are using relative paths, too). In order to display images in email using Campaign Monitor, you either need to import the images with your campaign, or host them on a web server and point to them there (eg. img src="http://www.myserver.com/image.jpg").
