If you have configured email categories, a link to unsubscribe from a specific category will appear. Thus, the recipient can unsubscribe from only one topic, but continue to receive campaigns in other categories.

To insert a link to unsubscribe from a category, select the part of the text in the template where you want to insert the link and open the Variables menu and select the Unsubscribe: <category name>.

How can I change the style and text of an unsubscribe link?

To change the link’s text, select the variable text and click on the link icon (Insert / Edit Link).

A window will open where you can change the text.

Change the unsubscribe link text and click Insert / Edit Link to confirm the changes.

To change the text style, select the text and apply styles from the control panel.

Another option - if you change data through the source code, the text can be changed in the same line between the >< symbols

And the style can be changed by adding the style attribute to the text.

Now you can send your campaign with a modified template. When the subscriber clicks on the unsubscribe link, the unsubscribe page will open.
