What is the unsubscribe link and how to add to my emails?
I only get http://the_unsubscribe_link when using the unsubscribe tag.
You are using the unsubscribe tag correctly.
The http://the_unsubscribe_link is a placeholder. When you send out your email for real, it'll be converted into a real unsubscribe link.
Hope this helps.
