I'm not sure which forum to post this but I thought I'd give feedback to the Faithlife team that there is always a formatting problem with the Faithlife emails I receive and try to view them in Outlook. See below to note that the text extends past the image and wraps up one line. It's really not a big thing but it certainly is not how it was designed.

That's actually a feedburner RSS feed so it is really Google's fault Geeked

Does that mean it can't be controlled by Faithlife?

Yeah that is how the Feedburner delivers it.

And you can't adjust things to make it fit correctly?

Not to my knowledge. FWIW it always displays correctly for me in Gmail (which makes sense since it is Google). The most you can do is activate compatibility with the most RSS readers. See screenshot.

Only if Faithlife were to make a change to their HTML on the web page.

The problem with your example is there is no paragraph "<p>" before the "As you begin working with Logos 8......" which is why the text starts next to the image instead of below it.

Basically, the RSS feed reads what's on the page, it doesn't change anything. If there isn't an instruction to start a new paragraph, then it won't start one

I have no idea how to manage this? I checked outlook and it didn't even say I had any RSS feeds. Perhaps I'll just live with the weird formatting.

So are you saying that Faithlife can control this on their webpage by simply formatting it differently and adding a <p> at the beginng?

Yeah, that's actually a screen cap from David's Feedburner account. I can understand you being confused Yes

Well that sounds promising. I'm hoping a Faithlife employee will see this thread.
