How do I view my message as a web page?

When you send out a broadcast message you can easily have your subscribers view it online by adding a View As Web Page link to your message, as opposed to having them view it directly in their email client. This is a great option to have your subscribers view the message as a web page if their email client is having any issues with viewing the message properly.

Note: When following the below instructions you will want to make sure "Sharing" is enabled for your broadcast.

Step by Step Instructions

  1. When you are working on a broadcast message, click so that your cursor appears where you would like the archive link to be, then look to the toolbar above the message editor and click the "Personalize" button.

    Click Personalize button

  2. From the drop down menu, look for the "Your Snippets" section and choose "Archived Web Version".

    Select Archived Web Version

    This will insert a URL that will link to the archived version of your broadcast.

    Archive URL personalization added

  3. Alternatively, you can use your own text for the linked text. You would just insert a link into your message and for the link URL you would type {!archive_url}.

    Manually hyperlink archive URL

Using AWeber's HTML Editor?

  1. When you are working on a message, type into your message where you would like to have your link for having your subscribers view your message as a web page. For this example, the phrase "View This Message Online" is being used.

  2. Highlight the text you want to link and then click on the chain link icon in the toolbar.

  3. From the hyperlink window that pops up, insert {!archive_url} into the URL box. Then, click the "OK" button.

    Once you complete this, the text that you had highlighted will be converted into a link that links to the archived version of your broadcast once the message is sent.
Note: When sending yourself a test message the link in the test will go to your general broadcast archive page and not to the individual archived broadcast. This is because the broadcast has not been sent yet. That link will not be live until the broadcast has actually been sent and posted to the archive page.
