Custom tags not working correctly in subject lines

Hi, i'm having an issue with custom tags. I want to create a custom tag to randomise certain phrases, i know it's possible with the random content tag but its very messy if i want to randomise like 50 phrases.

The custom tag actually works in the subject line, however its not rendering properly as its showing the <br /> tag after the tag as shown below screenshot

Here below screenshot is the custom tag i created

Is there anything i can do to stop the <br /> rendering in the subject line? I did try playing around with the HTML but it keeps defaulting back to the < br /> tag.

Hi @twisted1919 i noticed the [DATE] tag is not working in subject lines. It works in the email body, just not subject lines.
In subject line will work only tags which appear if you click on [Available Tags].

MW team, could you therefore pls add [CURRENT_DATE] to the available tags pulldown in the campaign settings? Just so my clients have the option to use it without asking. Many thanks!

Is there also a chance to re-format the date to display correctly in a European readable format = DD/MM/YY? The US format makes no sense to us here.

Sure.

Since
[CURRENT_YEAR] [CURRENT_MONTH] [CURRENT_DAY] are also available, could you use them to format your own date?
Otherwise, I can only assume we can extend the CURRENT_DATE tag to allow a format, so you could do something like:
[CURRENT_DATE format="d.m.Y"] but this can get a bit more complex, so I am not sure if it would be a good idea.

I can live w/your first suggestion for now, but having more display options would be a great idea - maybe per list or client where define the [CURRENT_DATE] format on a customer or list level.

This is turning into a real obstacle now.
Almost all of our data feeds are generating a timestamp in the yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm format, and that keeps clashing with the MailWizz timestamp, which we cannot change. :confused:

In custom field doesn't work.
Yes, so that's my whole point.
When we import data 9 times out of 10, the date is using a more common ISO format (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm), so the data never matches with existing MailWizz entries. The far easier solution for us would be to change the custom field date format in MailWizz, or for MailWizz to convert imported dates automatically into its preferred format.
