Hi, How would I customise the CSS for email templates for examples the ‘Registration Approved’ email template?

I have seen a couple of threads on the forum but all mention adding something to the functions.php file it seems, any help much appreciated.

Hi there,

It really depends on what you want to change, can you provide more details so which know which method to recommend?

Hi Tony, there are some classes such as callout as well as any href’s being styled, would be good to change the colours to be branded.
The class I can replace with inline styles, but the href is controlled with the stylesheet somewhere.

So for that, you have a few options.

Inline styles are the ‘easiest’ but for the links probably not suitable.

There’s a bunch of hooks ‘fired’ within the messages that you can use to add additional CSS, see this post:

Or, another option is to replace the default .css file used for that template variation with a custom version, for that you can use this hook:–Filter-and-Action-Hooks-in-EE/

You’d copy the current .css file into your theme’s (preferably a child theme) root directory and alter it there, then that filter will be used in its place.

Perfect, the custom css route will work best for us, will give it a go, thanks!
