    MailChimp code block

    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on creating a newsletter template for a client. I have to try and recreate the template that they've sent to me, which is all well and good except one aspect of it requires coding and all of the HTML coding that I'm trying is not working. The aspect that I'm struggling with is creating a gray band that stretches across the entire webpage (with the content in that content block remaining in the middle of the page, and not stretching to the edges). Because I understand that this is a challenging description of what I'm looking for, I have included a screenshot of what I'm trying to recreate so that you understand the coding that I'm looking for for this instance. -template-1.jpg

    I'm not sure if this is possible, but any insight for creating this gray area would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Two methods for programming this comes to mind, but would either of them fit into the rest of the email is the question. Why don't you post the code for the email here and we can try to come as close to matching it as we can. Please use code tags when posting.

    The problem is that MailChimp does the majority of the coding for you, so I don't know what the actual coding is for the rest of the newsletter. I would assume that it's fairly basic, as the rest of the design is fairly simplistic, but that is just an assumption.
