NOTE! For each of the keys in this guide, you need to put brackets around them - like this:

Special cases:

Facebook URL fields, telephone fields, and Twitter handle fields all ordinarily output an HTML link. In these cases you will follow the format below:

Liquid Objects Available

Liquid is a templating language that allows you to display dynamic content on web pages. So we need this key to be dynamic, because it’s based on a user dynamically visiting a site or a page.

Liquid objects are similar to interpolation keys, except they need to be used for web and course pages specifically.

  • customer: Contact object

  • field: Contact custom fields object

  • global: Global snippets object

  • internal_name: course, product, site, group and worksheet

Common Liquid Objects:
  • customer.first_names: contact’s first name

  • customer.last_name: contact’s last name

  • customer.name: contact’s full name

  • customer.email: contact’s email

  • account.name: your account name

NOTE! Some of these liquid objects can also be used in emails like interpolation keys, but they must be used for web/course pages (interpolation keys will not work for pages).

For the following Liquid Objects, you don’t need to add more brackets around the brackets displayed below:


Global Snippets

If you insert a global snippet using {{global.some_key}}, these will be replaced as the very first thing while processing the email.

This means that your snippet can contain other interpolations, or even Liquid code, and those will be evaluated in the exact same way as if you'd typed the contents of your global snippet directly into the email itself.

However, if it contains another global snippet, then that won't be replaced in the same way again. It will work, but it'll be interpreted as a Liquid expression.

Also, if you use the global snippet in a Liquid expression, eg. {{ global.some_key | upcase }}, then we will NOT be evaluating any other interpolations or Liquid code inside that global snippet.magic li
