Gmail supports display:none – what does it mean for emails?
Less than a month after Litmus and Microsoft announced a partnership that would see then communicating with the email marketing community to improve and fix bugs in Outlook. But since end of August email developers have noticed that Gmail now supports and understands
What does display:none; do?
display:none; allows you to hide specific sections of an email template that you don’t want to appear, for example it can hide large sections of text that don’t look correct when viewing on your mobile phones.
Those who have ever tried to code an email will know that it’s very difficult getting it to respond on desktop and mobile the effectively but also making sure that it looks right on Outlook, Gmail, iPhone, Yahoo, Hotmail etc. The list is endless and while most output the same, Gmail has always been a headache for developers.
However this change should hopefully now mean that Gmail are stepping up to hopefully compete with Microsoft as email platform “King or Queen” but is a win-win for developers as it’s one headache we no longer have to worry about!
