Summary0017086: Avoid sending as a webpage and using a template at the same time
DescriptionThese days I send mail to my clients by “sending as a webpage” with phpList.
This webpage is a complete html-page written in Dreamweaver.
However I found out after sending a test-email that phpList is adding some html to my webpage as well.
At the beginning <html> <body>, and at the end </html> </body>.
All the html and body tags are already in my page.
My outlook has no problem with this, but when I open the email in Dreamweaver it gets clear that this html page has html bugs.
After removing the tags that are provided by phpList everything is OK.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a new message in phpList and choose the option "sending as a webpage"
2. Fil in the other stuff.
3. Send a test e-mail to your e-mail address.
TagsNo tags attached.

Sorry. Steps to reproduce are not complete.

I also selected a template for the webpage to be shown in.

So now it's complete

ah but that doesnt make sense. when using send-a-webpage it assumes the page is complete. but with a template around it that would be another wrapper.

can you try without a template?

Might be so. But this could happen to other people as well. I was used working with the editor and templates and switched to using 'sending as a webpage'. So I kept working with the templates, never thought of the idea of integrating both in my webpage to be send.
But I tested integrating my template in the website-page and after that there were no additional html or body tags.
Might be an idea to build something in the program to prevent this way of sending or put something in the tutorial or help text.
Thanks fort solving this.

Yes, that may be good to add. A notice when a template is used on send-a-webpage. Or maybe even drop the template when using send-a-webpage.

I have made an email using html in the WYSIWYG and then clicked the send a page button (by accident) before now and it deletes all the stuff in the WYSIWYG - bit scary tbh!

gingerling, that's a different issue. Can you open a new issue for that?
