Hello, I'm trying to add a funny, cute image to my abandoned cart e-mail template that would be included in all of them that I send. I uploaded the image to my shopify store's files because I figure it has to be hosted somewhere, but how do I insert it into the html when I'm editing that? I tried simple <img></img> tags around the image's address and that didn't work. That might sound like a stupid idea, I really have no idea what I'm doing in general with HTML. Thanks if you can help!
Sounds like a fun idea! An option would be to use liquid variables to add a logo to your abandoned cart emails and insert your image there! To do this head to Settings > Notifications > Abandoned Checkouts.
Once here, you can access more information about adding variables and add them directly into the code you see.
Let me know if I can clarify anything for you! - JP
No worries! We do have an app that allows you to further customize your email templates it's a paid app - you can check it out here: https://apps.shopify.com/recover-my-cart?utm_medium=forum&utm_campaign=Guru+ASK&utm_source=social.
Another option would be to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the image attached and some details about where you want the image to appear. Reply back with your ticket number and I can pass it along to our theme department for some help adding it into the liquid.
Your initial approach was correct, only the image tag syntax wasn't.
Put this anywhere in your email template that you want the image to appear:
<img src="paste your image URL here" height="100" width="100" />
Get the URL of the image from Shopify admin in Settings > Files section, where you have uploaded the image.
You can change the height and width attributes to fit your needs.
Hope this helps.
