Email Preview [solved]
« on: November 30, 2018, 09:48:14 am »
Hey guys - might be a dumb question but is there a way to debug email templates without ordering test orders? I know how to edit emails php's and such but I cannot find a way to test the email layout without ordering :-( Something like "show me an email preview" or something like that...? Iam on Joomla 3.9.1 and latest VM 3.4.something :-D
