I've been trying to follow the tutorial located here, with great success - everything is coming together beautifully, except for one issue!
I have a content area at the very top of my email template, and inside that content area, I have placed this code as instructed in the tutorial's step #2:
%%before; httpget; 1 "http://newsletter.blogs.wesleyan.edu/feed/"%%
But, when I generate a send preview, the entire unformatted feed appears in that content area.
Below it, the content from the RSS feed is displaying very nicely exactly as I want it to. But, I'd like to figure out what to do to make the huge block of unformatted xml at the top of the email disappear.
I've tried to hack it with CSS; I've tried to hide that content area with display:none; but that hasn't worked.
Am I missing something obvious that's causing the entire unformatted RSS feed to appear at the top of my email?
