Custom notification email design

Solved2.53K viewsGeneral

Hi all!
Back at digging in AnsPress! I first would like to know which file is responsible for “designing” the notification emails we receive from AnsPress. Is Anspress using WP default email template? I’m using BuddyPress which has a dedicated email customizer and I would like to apply the same design to AnsPress mails for a better UX (nothing fancy, no picture, just some styling). What is the best way to do that?
Cheers!
Fred

Just found a mention about “addons/email/template.html” and “addons/email/style.css” in class-helper.php. Should I add those files to be able to change the emails’ layout and design?

Hello Fred,

Yes, you have to edit this files.

Hi Rahul!
Hope you’re doing fine. 😀 There are no such files yet. I can create them but do we have an example of template.php somewhere, even a very basic one?
Thanks and have a great day!

Me again! I just noticed a “Manage your notifications” link at the bottom of the email we receive from anspress.io: pretty neat! Is it part of your template.php or is it something you added via AnsPress Options > Email Templates?

You can find files here:
anspress-question-answertemplatesaddonsemail

Our emails are delivered by elasticemail.com. Which is a transactional email service provider.

Perfect, thanks!

Hi Rahul!
Working like a charm but I can’t succeed to override it from child theme. I created child-theme/anspress/templates/addons/email and put the files there but nothing happens. If I override the files directly in AnsPress directory, it’s working. How can I override from child theme?
Thanks in advance and have a nice week-end!

Hi Fred,
As I see in code here:
https://github.com/anspress/anspress/blob/master/addons/email/class-helper.php#L232
https://github.com/anspress/anspress/blob/master/addons/email/class-helper.php#L251
AnsPress is looking for file in child theme first. Please make sure file name are matching and try clearing your cache.
Thanks

Ok! So I don’t need the /templates/ subdirectory, just child-theme/anspress/addons/email.

Working now, thanks! Do you want me to add this to the documentation?

Oh yes, I missed templates part in your comment. It’s time for me to get spectacles 🙂
