Support » Plugin: WP Easy Post Mailer » How to make your own template

  • ResolvedPlugin Author Richard Leishman



    One of the questions I have been asked a lot recently is “How do I create my own mail templates?”, here is an explanation:

    Let’s assume your WordPress theme is called “twentyfifteen”, open the plugin’s folder /wp-content/plugins/wp-mailer/templates/ and copy the following two files:


    to your theme folder /wp-content/themes/twentyfifteen/ but rename to something like:


    And then modify to your wishes (it is important to keep the wpm- prefix),

    Bear in mind that you will also need to update the header in the .php file.

    Template Name: My Theme Red
    Template Author: Richard
    Template Website:
    Template Description: Richard red theme for WP Twenty Fifteen

    This will now appear in the Templates section of WP Easy Post Mailer.

  • hi there just wanna know does your plugin need any third party email services to send email to the subscribers?

    Don’t forget to send your templates to us and we add them to the plugin with credits to yourself.

    Hi Sam,

    No, the plugin sends directly from your web hosting server. It also stores all subscribers and manages unsubscribes internally in the WordPress database and does not use any 3rd party systems.

    Currently quite basic but we are hoping to develop into something big, we have a list of features that we will start on once we know the platform is free of bugs.


    What happens to the email templates if the theme is updated? Doesn’t WordPress remove the old theme folder and unpack the new version in its place?

    As far as I am aware, no files are deleted only updated when a new version of the theme you are using is released.

    Can I add the subscribers name to my emails thus making each subscriber email personalised? Thanks Tony.
