<p> Tags Being Added To Multiline Tags

Hi there-

I have been experimenting with your email system because we have been looking for an easier way to develop eblasts for clients. I have been able to successfully take our code and put it into your system and get everything to work beautifully except for one part.

It seems that when I have a <multiline> section, a <p> tag is automatically added around my code giving me a bunch of extra spacing around my text that is unwanted. I have gone into the source and deleted this successfully, but when I have multiple <multiline> tags in one repeater, it is an impossible task.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening, they would be greatly appreciated. I want to use this system badly because it would be a much better solution for our company, but without the ability to control spacing, it is an issue.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Deanne, welcome to the forums! Have you tried adding CSS styles to the <head> of your code to get rid of the spacing around the <p> tags? Something like:

p { margin: 0; padding: 0; }

I generally start off with that as a 'reset', then usually add margin-bottom selectively from there. Let me know if you have any questions about this :)

I tried this, but I still see the spacing issue. Do you put the margin-bottom CSS inline or in the header?

In the header. CSS styles are automatically inlined prior to send, so adding styles like this should work, in theory.

Could you also check that no <p> tags (or similar) are already surrounding the <multiline> tags?

If you like, you can contact our support team with campaign and account details. We'd be happy to look at your code, too.
