Help fixing "Invalid Module" error in mkto email template

Question asked by Lauren Baideme on Aug 9, 2019
Latest reply on Aug 12, 2019 by Lauren Baideme

Hi folks - 

 

Hoping someone can help me figure out why I'm getting validation errors when trying to add modules to an email template. I uploaded html to Marketo to create a new email template, and then followed the directions in their documentation (Email Template Syntax - Marketo Docs - Product Documentation ) to make the template sections modular. 

 

I get the following "Invalid Module" errors: 

 

I've read several other articles and tried playing around with the code, but am finally giving it up and hoping someone who knows what they're doing can help me :-D. 

 

HTML code is attached - highlighted the container and modules in yellow. 

 

FYI, I created a single module container using <td>, and 4 modules using <table>. Definitely open to changing this if it's a problem. 

 

Ultimately if I can figure out what's going on with the basic template, I want to also ensure that the modules are editable (i.e. that the body copy is in a rich text editor). I was going to use mktoText or mktoEditable after solving for this first problem. 

 

Thanks in advance for any expert guidance! 

 

Lauren
