Making a Bottom Banner for Your Listserv

  1. Log in to http://lists.psu.edu/cgi-bin/wa.
  2. Select List Management 
  3. Select Customization
  4. Select Mail Templates
  5. Select one of your lists, for example L-MyList, from the Select List: window
  6. Type Banner in the Search Template: window,  click Search.
  7. You should see four templates in the Select Templates Window:
Bottom banner for plain text postings [BOTTOM_BANNER]
Bottom banner for HTML postings [BOTTOM_BANNER_HTML]
Top banner for plain text postings [TOP_BANNER]

Top banner for HTML postings [TOP_BANNER_HTML]

HTML templates, if present, are used for mail that contains HTML, otherwise BOTTOM_BANNER is used for both plain and html postings.

I've included example of both here. Customize one or both.

   6.  Then click on the Edit Template button.

   7.  Copy/past the template into the web page and then click on update at the bottom of the page.

NOTE: The following are examples.
