Tutorial: Custom PMPro Emails

We use the WordPress plugin Paid Membership Pro (PMPro) to manage our membership levels. It is a popular plugin that has many great features, its welcome email not being one of them. (uggo!)

So we were pretty excited when they recently released a new email template add on. Our new welcome email is quite an improvement and it was so easy to create. Jen, the non-developer of the team, created the new welcome email using custom HTML all by herself.

If she can do it, so can you!  All the steps are below.

We started with this article by Nicole Merlin. It contains the HTML for a nice, simple template that needed very few changes.

Then we pasted the HTML into this real-time editor in order to see what the output would look like. We added our own images, updated the text, and inserted a few links.

When the email design and content was complete, we copy and pasted the HTML into the PMPro Email Template add on.
