I am trying to convert some M1.9 emails to M2 and it currently calls the images from

<img src="{{skin url="images/logo_email.gif" _area='frontend'}}

I've tried

<img src="{{view url="images/logo_email.gif"}}

I have all the images in app/design/frontend/Vender/Theme/web/images. Is this the correct location?

It works if I pull from the media folder with <img src="{{media url="/wysiwyg/logo_email.gif"}}, but I would really like to know how to pull from the theme folder in M2. I think it's a permissions issue as I cannot pull up any image from there.

Here are a few things to try:

First of all, you're missing the design/ folder in your location path. Move the files to `app/design/frontend/Vendor/Theme/web/images.

Next, try adding the theme name to as an argument to the view directive: {{view theme="yourtheme" url="images/logo_email.gif"}}

Also, make sure that you run bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

  • Sorry left that out of the file path but it is in the design folder. Thank you.
