Please help... I get the following error:

Unsubscribe hidden in comments    

Your unsubscribe tag appears to be hidden inside HTML comment tags such as <!-- -->. Please ensure your unsubscribe link is visible and not commented out of the page.

Hey there Jarv, what's throwing out our email template parser is that you've placed the <unsubscribe> within a <layout> and <repeater>. What this means is that it's possible to delete the layout and presumably, the only unsubscribe link in your email design. If you place the unsubscribe link outside outside of the <repeater> tags, you should be fine.

I noticed that this layout is the only one inside of the repeater tags. It is possible to include editable regions outside of layout/repeater, as is likely what you'll want in the case of footer text. The simplest approach may be to remove the repeater and layout tags nesting the footer and re-import the template.

In the interim, i'll ask the team to make this error message clearer. Thanks, Jarv! Let us know if you have any questions about the above :)
