Where are the templating instructions? (4 posts)

    The front-end of this is absolutely hideous and needs a major face lift. We have the capabilities to have custom templates, but their are no instructions to be found!

    You can try any theme you want or wait for our new theme.

    How can we "try any theme you want" when there are instructions on how to use a different theme?

    I've looked at https://usabilitydynamics.com/tutorials/wp-invoice/ and there no tutorials on shortcode, templates, how they work, how to modify them, how to over-ride them.

    Or as my few hours trying it has found so far: I tell WP-Invoice which page it should use to display an invoice on and that's it? I can modify the page CSS but how do I modify the information chosen? I copied all the files from core/wpi to mytheme/wpi, edited receipt_page.php and it didn't display the changes. If I'm doing this wrong (i.e. not the way WP works in my eperience) how do I do it the WP-Invoice way?

    OK, my mistake - I'm using a child theme of boilerplate and WP-Invoice is looking at Boilerplate/wpi not Boilerplate-chile/wpi

    @triplemoons: In WP-Invoice Global Settings tick "Use custom templates. If checked, WP-Invoice will use templates in the 'wpi' folder in your active theme's folder." and save.

    If all is well you will get green box with the message "A "wpi" folder has been found, any files with the proper file names will be used instead of the default template files."

    If the folder is empty copy the wpi files from core/wpi to your theme/wpi

    I had to add @import url("../boilerplate/wpi/wpi-default-style.css"); to my CSS file but that be owing to the fact I'm using a child theme.

    Good luck :-)
