Explanation:

videoLinks: The variables of Nexweve video experience can be modified by passing them with the help of query parameters. Each variable we need to override or updated needs to added to the url along with its value. Note: Variables need to have a prefix of VAR_.

Hence, in the above code snippet we could see that we added VAR_USERNAME={$name} to the link that was generated from the Nexweave campaign.{$name}, is the personalization variable given by the Mailerlite platform.



imageLinks: The variables of Nexweave Image templates too can be updated by passing their values in the query parameter, just the format here is different compared to video. Here, we append the following snippet for the variables that need to be updated.

data=%7B%22USERNAME%22%3A%22VARIABLE_VALUE%22%7D

Here, the variable value will be the actual value that needs to be replaced in the email. Hence the snippet has an image src set to, https://api.nexweave.com/image/v2/thumbnail/rSpRcrque?data=%7B%22USERNAME%22%3A%22{$name}%22%7D. Here, {$name}, is the personalization variable given by the Mailerlite platform.



This is how the image would appear in Preview, send a test email, the actual values will be replaces in the email.
