WP Email Template

Housekeeping

Plugin Install

Free Lite Version – Use the WordPress plugins uploader. Under Plugins Click > Add New and search ‘WP Email Template’ to find the plugin in the WordPress repository. Once you find it Click Install.

Pro Version – Here is a link where to get your License key and Pro version download on the a3rev My Account dashboard after you have purchased you License.

Important 
If you are upgrading from the Lite Version of the plugin to the Pro License version you must deactivate the Lite Version before you try and activate the Pro version – if you don’t you will get a ‘Fatal Error’ – Cannot Re-Declare Class message. This happens because the plugins share the same folder and WordPress will not create duplicate folders.

Support

Lite Version – The Lite version is provided Free without a License key and hence we offer no support. We will always keep the plugins source code compatible with the latest version of WordPress. If you require support you do have 2 options:

1. You can read through the topics posted by Pro License Holders on the plugins a3rev support forum and see if you can find the answer there. Only Pro License holders have ‘write’ access to the forum.

2. Post your support request to the plugins WordPress support Forum – another Lite Version user may decide they can help you.

Pro License Holder – Post your support request to the plugins and we will do our utmost to reply within 24 hours (that is our goal).

Email Support – If you are a Lite Version user and send us an email requesting support – you will not get a reply. If you are a Pro License Holder we will respond but it will take 7 to 14 days. We are terrible at answering emails.

How to navigate these docs.

The most efficient way to use these docs is:

1. Sections – These docs are broken up into sections. There is a ‘View Docs’ button at the top of each of the plugins dashboard admin pages with links to that section of the docs. A table of Contents at the top of the docs takes you straight to the selected section of the docs.

2. Images, Numbers and Images notes. Each section has a full image of that part of the dashboard with Coloured numbers. Below the image is a Corresponding text explanation of what each numbered feature does. We do it like this so that that don’t speak or read English can use Google translator to be able to get value from the docs.

3. Coloured Numbers for quick Version reference.

VERSION NUMBER KEY

Colour numbers visually show you which version of the plugin the feature is activated on.

1. Red Circle – Activated in Lite Version and by default in the Pro Version and the Ultimate Versions.
2. Green Circle – Pro version Features, not available in Lite version.

4. Hints and Tips – These are usually easily spotted as they are highlighted in a Red Box.

5. Quick Links – Under each section you will see Quick links. Designed to be a short cut to relevant information and the docs.

6. Troubleshooting – We try and post any known issues and the fix in the Troubleshooting section at the end of the doc. This includes known Theme or plugin conflicts.
