WP Email Template

Description

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 any of these supported providers

  • SMTP via your server
  • Gmail SMTP
  • Mandrill (API or SMTP)
  • SparkPost (HTTP API or SMTP API)

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

TEMPLATE EDIT OPTIONS

  • Option to Turn the Template ON | OFF. OFF to just use the plugin use to set up wp email sender without using the template (see below).
  • Dynamic Template Width – admin can edit the 600px default width of the Template.
  • Template Background colour selector
  • Background Pattern ON | OFF setting.
  • Upload and position Email Template Header image
  • Header Image container background, border, and padding settings.
  • Footer – add email template custom footer content via the WordPress editor.
  • Follow us on – add links to social media site where users can follow you.
  • Many more dynamic style options available in the Pro version.

EMAIL SENDING OPTIONS

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 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
  • Formidable Forms – both Lite and Pro Versions of that plugin
  • WooCommerce – Version 2.3.9 and backward compatible to version 2.1.0. 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 e-Commerce – applies the template to every store generated email to customers and admins
  • 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.

Reviews

Don’t west your time

There are no any free functionality are available here.
if you want to use free version of this plugin please don’t west your time.

Free version intentionally programmed to wreck your emails

All I was after, was a plugin that allowed me to set a global width, and footer.

Sure.. this plugin does this.. but it then ADDS shit to your emails you cant remove… unless you buy the free version.

Like email title is suddenly plonked into the body of your email, ruining it. There is NEVER a need for this, its only done so you are forced to buy the paid version.

Something, I would never do, since its been done so damn dishonestly.

Avoid.

Great plugin

This is a great plugin – for matching emails that I send out to match the header and colors of my website.

In the free version they allow you to upload the header and customize a few colors – I am seriously considering going Pro

Kudos to the developer(s)

Faulty error messages

Throws an error saying that the ports are blocked when in fact they are not. I switched to WP-MAIL-SMTP and then it worked just fine with identical settings.

  • Fix – Max wide layout issues with template display in iPhone 5.
  • Fix – Bug for users who have https: (SSL) on their sites wp-admin but have http on sites front end. This was causing the email template preview to show a -1 instead of the Template because wp-admin with SSL applied only allows https:, but the url of admin-ajax.php?action=preview_wp_email_template is http: and it is denied hence was returning the ajax -1 error. Fixed by writing a filter to recognize when https is configured on wp-admin and parsing correctly. If you do not have this configuration nothing changes for you, if you do have https on your wp-admin (or install it in the future) and http on the front end then Email Template Preview action now automatically detects that and works as it should.
