[e-Newsletter] Customing template for e-newsletter

We have a graphic format of newsletter (log in the header, main article with read more and sub-articles with read more links) we currently send using our previous email newsletter application (not sure if it was Zoho Campaigns or MailChimp) .. so we wanted to move to WPMU and have installed e-newsletter but can\'t find a lot of tools for customisation.. Could you please guide me on how to customise a template and use our customised format for sending newsletters for each site.

    Hello Alim,

    e-Newsletter plugin does not have tool for creating custom template. It allows you to create own templates manually (so you have to have a HTML template ready) - please see following instructions from usage page: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/e-newsletter/#product-usage (Using Custom Themes)

    Yes! You can make your own custom newsletter themes. Simply copy an existing theme from the following folder:

    e-newsletter/email-newsletter-files/templates

    Change the name of the copied theme folder to any name you like. Then open the style.css file inside your new theme, and change the Theme Name to the same new name. Now you have your own theme that you can customize to your heart’s content.

    Once you are done customizing, you’ll need to upload your newsletter theme to your site. You can use either FTP for this, or the File Manager feature at your host’s cPanel or Plesk.

    To prevent overwriting your custom themes when you update the plugin, e-Newsletter creates a special folder for them when you activate the plugin.

    You’ll find the enewsletter-custom-themes folder in wp-content/uploads(+/siteID/ if activated on a single blog of a multi-site install).

    Once you have added your custom themes to that folder, they will be available for selection in the templates area when you create or edit a newsletter.

    Let us know if you have more question

    kind regards,
