Kentico Quick Tip: Full HTML Toolbar for Notification Templates

By: Laura Frese| Link to blog on site

You may have noticed that when setting up email notification templates in Kentico you are limited to a basic toolbar, significantly limiting the styles you can add to the template. In this post I provide a quick tip on how to get the full toolbar so you can add more style to your notification emails. This is very useful when you want to include a custom header and footer when sending emails to users that have subscribed to content notifications.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to do this through Kentico’s interface, you have to have access to the server to modify the file. Keep in mind, this change may be reverted during updates.

Open the following file

\CMS\CMSModules\Notifications\Controls\TemplateTextEdit.ascx.cs

In the PageLoad method at approximately line 91 change htmlText.ToolbarSet from “Basic” to “Full”

That’s it, you now have a full toolbar to style the email template with.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
