Enhanced Emails

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Will the plugin break my current site?

This is highly unlikely to happen. The plugin enhances the way WordPress handles e-mail notifications, but it does it in a unobtrusive way. Basically, it provides a wrapper for wp_mail, which can be used for e-mail notifications. If you did override any pluggable email notification functions, make sure to use eemails_wp_mail instead of wp_mail in order to make use of the plugin functionality.

How can I create my own e-mail theme?

It’s easy – just put your email.php theme file inside your current WP theme directory (if you put it inside wp-content it should work as well, but it’s bad practice).

How does template hierarchy work for e-mails?

An example email template name looks like this: email-action1-action2. The plugin tries to locate email-action1-action2.php in your theme folder, and if it fails – it tries to use email.php from your theme. If this fails, too, the plugin will use its default email-action1-action2.php template, or if it doesn’t exist – just emails.php.
