HTML5 is accepted by Meredith and will work correctly within HTML5 enabled browsers and environments. HTML5 Third Party tags are required. If users have the latest versions of Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, or Firefox, their browser is already capable of handling most code written in HTML5. If a user's browser is not updated, backup images will display instead of the HTML5 creative. HTML5 creative should follow the same advertising specifications as other Standard and Rich Media creative developed for each site, but can carry a heavier weight size specified above. As with other rich media, HTML5 will require testing and approval 10 business days prior to launch.

Flash (not recommended, HTML5 preferred) As of November 1st, 2016, Flash will no longer be accepted on Meredith sites.

Flash files can be converted into HTML5 files using the Google Swiffy Tool.

Additional Notes:


All Time Inc. Digital properties which distribute newsletters adhere to the same general ad product specifications - although specific ad size may vary.

NOTE: 3rd party impression tracking pixels are not accepted for newsletters.
