WP Email Template

Add a beautiful HTML Template to all WordPress and plugin generated emails. Send email options - SMTP, Gmail, Mandrill, GoDaddy Hosting supported.

WP Email Template 2 things - beautifully

  1. Applies a responsive, customizable, optimized HTML email template to every email sent from your WordPress site including plugin generated emails.

  2. Gets your beautiful / professional emails delivered. Easily Configure advanced email sending providers with SMTP, Gmail SMTP or Mandrill (API or SMTP)

Email Template

The plugin applies a HTML template to email sent from your WordPress site. The Template is optimized to show your HTML emails perfectly in the10 most popular email browsers.

  • Apple iOS Devices
  • MS Outlook
  • Hotmail
  • Apple Mail
  • Yahoo! Mail
  • Google Gmail
  • Android Devices
  • Windows Live Desktop
  • Mozilla Thunderbird

Email Sending Options

Introduced in Version 1.1.2, almost 2 years after the initial launched WP Email Template. During that 2 years we noticed that the biggest issue users have are:

  • Email Spammers make successful email delivery a very complicated and specialized function.
  • WordPress by default uses your web hosts local mail server to send all WordPress and plugin generated emails.
  • Emails sent from a web host local mail server have poor delivery rates because they have very little or no reputation.
  • Configuring any type of email delivery provider will improve email delivery rates.

Every different Email Provider requires another plugin to configure. For example here are just a few of the available choices.

At a3rev we want users to be able to

  1. Create a Beautiful / Professional HTML Email template.
  2. Auto apply that template to all emails sent from WordPress and installed plugins.
  3. Easily configure a sending provider to get those emails delivered.
  4. Do it all with one plugin, quickly and easily.

That is why we have added the Email Sending Provider Configuration Options so you can do all of that with just one plugin - WP Email Template.

Email from WordPress Plugins

WP Email Template will not work with any plugin that:

  1. Applies it's own HTML Email Template (WP Email Template is still applied but the 2 together will look bad).
  2. Send it's emails via the php() function. WP Email Template is applied to all mail that goes through wp_mail()

Some of the better known plugins of the 1,000's of plugins that WP Email Template works beautifully with.

  • Gravity Forms - see the screen shots - looks sensational with the default Gravity style.
  • Contact Form 7 - see the screenshots
  • WP e-Commerce - applies the template to every store generated email to customers and admins
  • WooCommerce - Version 2.0 and backward compatible. By default the plugin ignores WooCommerce email output - but you can choose to apply your WordPress Email Template to all Woocomerce emails to give you consistent branding across your entire site.
  • WP Mail SMPT - WP Email Template does not interfere with the way any WordPress or any plugin handles email output - it just applies the template to any output content.
  • BackupBuddy - I love it when even my admin emails are branded - see the screenshots
  • Wordfence - Branded security emails - nice.

Mobile Responsive App style admin interface

Like WordPress we believe that a3rev plugin users should be able to configure and tweak our plugins settings while on the go, right from their mobile or tablet. This plugins features an app style admin interface with Switches, Sliders and a smart interface that hides associated settings when a feature is not turned ON.

  • 100% compatible with WordPress v3.8.0 admin interface.
  • Backward compatibility to WordPress v3.5.0
  • App style admin interface.
  • Admin app interface is fully mobile and tablet responsive.

Lite & Pro Version Admin Interface

All a3rev Lite Version plugins have exactly the same admin interface as the Pro Version. Pro Version features and settings are easy to spot on the admin dashboard as they are inside of a Yellow border. The Pro Version settings are all active on the admin panels so they can be used to get a great idea of how they work and what is available BUT the settings do not save when changes are saved and hence are not applied to the front end. Upgrading to the Pro version activates all the Pro version Features and Settings and removes the Yellow side bar and borders.

Lite Version Support

As a Lite Version user please post all support requests to the plugins WordPress Support forum. We do not watch that forum and posting there you will be relying on another user for support, not an a3rev team member. Upgrading to a Pro Version Licence gives 'write' access to the a3rev support forum and hence Lifetime priority support as part of the License.

WP Email Template requires no set up or configuration. As soon as you install and activate the plugin, it applies the default template to all of your emails. If you wish to add your own custom style then visit the plugins admin page and use the simple visual editor. For the absolute WordPress beginner we do have full pictorial documentation on how to find and use the visual editor features. See the plugins documents on line at the a3rev wiki.
