    I really welcome these changes! With these features, we could now use Campaign Monitor with Beefree Pro, without having to edit by hand the generated HTML to include tags.

    Regrettably, it seems that the proposed "special links" for CM are not correct. By importing a HTML from BF Pro to CM, it finds the "webversion" tag does not find the unsubscribe tag.

    Tags in CM are not "[unsubscribe]" but like this:

    Is there a work-around, or a plan to fix this?

    Introducing a custom HTML block in the editor (as well as in this post), all "custom tags" are removed. Here is a link to the documentation of CM

    You can edit all the Special Links in your BEE Pro account. It's not clear what merge tag needs to be put in the HREF statement with Campaign Monitor. The documentation that you pointed us to does not clarify that. We are referring to the equivalent to this for MailChimp: http://kb.mailchimp.com/merge-tags/the-unsubscribe-merge-tag

    What is the equivalent to that with CM? That way we can update our default "Special Links".

    In CM, the tags are like HTML "elements" for paragraphs or divs, i.e. it needs to be opened and closed. This enable to customise the content of the text linking to the unsubscribe page - which is nice.
    It is not possible in this editor to introduce HTML Tags, these are removed.
    The link to the CM documentation contains information under the chapter "Custom coded emails", i quote:
    For custom coded HTML, the element automatically generates a personalized unsubscribe link for each recipient."
    I tried to use the Special Links as well, but it does not generate the desired results. I tried also to introduce the tags with a "Custom HTML Block", but BeeFree Pro remove the tags - as not HTML Standard (like DIV, P, etc.)

    Any other ideas? I subscribed to the new Team Edition mainly for this feature, as it would save me a lot of time editing the code manually after importing it to CM, but it does not work as I want.

    Any update on this, i.e. the compatibility of the merge tags with Campaign Monitor? I upgraded to the Team Edition only for this feature, but I tested today again, and it is not stil working (unsubscribe tags not recognised as such in CM, requiring additional coding for each mailing developed with Beefree).

    Otherwise, still the best editor available on the market - by far!
