Editing email templates



Is there an 'easy' way to do this? I've been trying to get my head round the email templates, and I believe they are located at wwwroot/shop/en/mails. However, as a precaution, I tweaked test.html which I believe to be the test email which is sent out, but the changes I made were not applied to the test email.

The reason I want to change the templates is to lower the case on the emails which are sent out to customers as all the text is capitalised and it looks like your being shouted at.

So - which files do I need to edit in order to change the emails which are sent out?

Any help / pointers would be hugely appreciated.

Hi, pls. see also https://forum.thirtybees.com/topic/1768/invalid-mail-name-newsletter_conf-every-time-trying-to-remove-powered-by-prestashop-and-save-in-translations/11

Download the files from /mails/language and / or from /yourTemplate/mails or use them from your shop-installation which already exists on your computer.

then modify the files as you like

then upload them into the same folder (make a backup of the original files or rename them…)

for FTP upload you can use software like WinSCP or FileZilla to modify the html files you can use e.g. this: https://html5-editor.net/

You do not have to upload these files to a module, only into the correct folder /mails/ and or /yourTemplate/mails


and: you have to change it in ALL /mails/ folders (in root and also in your template folder etc…, the best way is to rename them and check which one is sent, this depends on TB and on the theme, see also this here: https://forum.thirtybees.com/topic/1609/welche-mailvorlagen-verwendet-tb/5 its in German and i have got the same problem a time ago). You have to copy the lang.php in each folder, too (if it does not exist regarding a translation into another language).

Hope you can find some hint there.

I downloaded the entire emails folder (which incidentally was NOT the one in the themes folder as there was not a 'mails' folder inside the themes folder...) , used http://scratchpad.io, copied and pasted the HTML in to the live preview, made the required changes, then uploaded the emails folder (i took a backup first...!) This then kicked the email templates in.
