Get absolute url for site in email templates

Jon Tetzlaff asked on January 14, 2016 22:15

How do you get the absolute url to your site in an email template? I'm trying to link to images within my email, but not sure how to get the base url. Looks for something like below

<img src="{% CurrentSite.AbsoluteURL #%}getmedia/aee59d16-af69-41af-ab79-0f347e43ecd9/logo.aspx" alt="{% CurrentSite.SiteDisplayName #%}" width="154" height="41" align="left" />

Thanks, Jon
