Possible to upload .zip for email templates?

Is it possible to upload a pre-packaged .zip file with my HTML and Images for the Email properly linked?

All I can find at the moment is to upload the html manually, then upload the images manually, then go image by image in the html and properly "src" them. 

Please provide some insight!

Hi Ben,

Unfortunately, there's no pre-packaged way to upload both your email template and images at the same time, but there are a few things that can make the work a little less painful: if you already have your HTML completed (including marking up the mktEditable divs you'll want for the email), you can drop it in the template in one go. Additionally, even though Marketo itself shows your images and files in folders, it always uses the same path regardless of foldering. (!?) As such, you can swap out your source paths with a mass search/replace in a text editor and then upload all the assets you would have put in the ZIP at once in Design Studio.

Courney,

Thank you for your answer.  I would like to mention that the images retaining the same path regardless of folder is extremely helpful to know.

Hey Courtney, 

This is really useful, thank you. 

I have a question about one part of your answer:

My question is, how do I know what url to put as the src url for the images and CSS files if they haven't been uploaded yet?

If you upload a test file, your files will all be under the same path (that's what Courtney is saying, the public pathname is always the same even though folders can be created in the UI).

If you assume you will not have naming collisions with existng Marketo files, and your filenames are already web-safe, then your filenames will be the same after uploading. Just prepend the static hostname + pathname.
