I'm a complete novice - and I don't know how to start

I've chosen and downloaded a template.  I had hoped that I just needed to highlight a piece of text, or image, to change it to the text I want.  That, of course, doesn't work.  So, I've tried looking at the version marked 'with tags'.  It looks just the same as the previous version, without tags.  How do I find the tags?  How do I start editing?  (I have already downloaded the idiots guide to codes, but I don't know how to use them).  I hope someone can be bothered to help.  Many thanks,

Hi CookieF,

If you are trying to edit the template so you can send your email, you first need to import the template file and images into Campaign Monitor first. Campaign Monitor has great resources on their site that should help you get started. Try the link below.

Have you seen our guide at http://help.campaignmonitor.com/topic.aspx?t=115 too? That explains the steps in updating one of our existing templates. You will need to open the HTML file with tags in a text editor, or an HTML editor though, to see the source code.
