I am wanting to add a new template pack so i can style my own emails instead of the standard email template provided with EE. I have read through the documentation. But i am confused as to where to put the plugin and how to set it up. I am more of a front end developer, so this stuff is tricky for me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Hi there,

You actually put the plugin in the same directory as most other WordPress plugins, in wp-content/plugins. That said, you shouldn’t need to build a new template pack if you’re only adding CSS options, you only need a template variation. A template pack would only be needed if you’re adding new HTML structure.

Hi Josh,
Thankyou for your quick reply. I have put the plugin in the plugins folder, done what i have thought to be correct with the naming conventions and when i choose to change the template struct in the drop down all i get is default? Really stuck on this one, need some more advice

My advice would be not to use a template pack. Instead you can use a template variation.
