Hi there!

I assume you're trying to get a high res version from the system. In this case, I would go find the asset within the BLOX CMS asset management interface, and then go to the "other" tab to see information about the high res image.

From this screen, you can click to "view" the high res version, which will then open in a new window. From here, you can right-click and download it.

We only utilize web-optimized images on the front end of the website, so getting the high res is not available unless going through the admin.

Does this answer your question?

Yes, we have many sites that use external systems to scrape our email newsletter pages.

There are two important functions that our integrated solution takes care of for you that may pop up if you use our pages with an external system:

1. There are sometimes JavaScript or tracking information included in the templates (which are not appropriate for emails). Our system removes this automatically, so you may need to ask an external system to do that.

2. Our system creates special pages to help get breaking news out as quickly as possible (by creating a specialized version of the article page for email). It is possible that if you are using an external system to scrape BLOX pages, you may have issues with caching or may need to do cache busting to ensure you're getting an un-cached page.

Let me know if you have more questions about this!


Hi Tom!

I think this is a great idea!

As a temporary measure, however, just making sure you realize that if you hover over the icon you see a mini-popup? Not as user friendly as your idea, but good to know if you didn't. =)
