Edit WP Email Templates in the Customizer 1

I like to show you how to edit your WordPress Email Templates in the Customizer. The WordPress community?made a lot of noise some months ago when the menu was to be?merged into the customizer. Now that we have WordPress 4.3 and have used it, I have found out that it is not as bad as I thought it would be. 🙂

If?you have a WordPress site or you are building one for someone, ?you may want to get rid of all the default emails sent from your site bearing “WordPress” on it. If that’s your challenge, then for sure, this tutorial will?help you do just that.

Get?Email Templates

First, all you have?to do is to download from WordPress.org plugin page, Email Templates. This is the first plugin to enhance email templates using the customizer.

Email Templates Plugin at WordPress.org


Download and install Email Templates like any other WordPress plugin. You?may install it right from your WordPress dashboard instead.?Activate the plugin and head over to the customizer to edit your email templates.


Email Templates Panel

You have the option to edit?your header by adding your own text, replacing the default “WordPress” name with your own, or you can add the?logo of?your site to your emails. Whichever one you choose, you are free to?personalize your email templates as much as possible.

Use the “footer” option to add your branding, and use the “send test email” to send out a test message to verify how your email templates will?look like.

Please, download Email Templates and give this plugin a try. You will be glad you did.
