Recently I've started using 2 new email templates that are causing Marketo to behave strangely when we try using them in the Marketing Activities tab. Listed below are the links to the templates...
Noted below (in bullet points) are the issues we're facing...
Has anybody experienced something similar? If you have any insights we would really appreciate it!
FYI - Marketo also tested these templates, and they indicated that this could be due to the code syntax in the email (response is below).
I am getting the same error when trying to open them in the editor. I also took the code from one of the templates and used it to create an email template in my testing instance. When using the Email 2.0 editor, the template works fine being used by new emails, but I get the same issue creating an email with it in the Email 1.0 editor.
One thing that may have caused this would be if this documentation - http://docs.marketo.com/display/public/DOCS/Email+Template+Syntax - was used when creating the HTML of that template, because that syntax is designed for the new 2.0 editor and can break the legacy 1.0 editor. Can you confirm if the syntax in the templates was taken from that documentation?
We obviously cannot access templates in your Marketo instance. Provide screen shots or attach the code.
And, as you noticed, you absolutely cannot use email 2.0 syntax in an instance that is still in 1.0. This si surely the cause of you problem.
These may help:
No need to look at the code, as written above:
