Modifying Email Templates

Project Huddle template files contain the markup and template structure for emails through projecthuddle. There are two different methods for changing the output of Project Huddle in the admin and front end of your site.

Using Built-In Hooks Recommended

This method protects against upgrade issues, as the template files can be left completely untouched. Actions and Filters can be used to filter output or add additional code to your project or admin page. You can find the many hooks by looking at the ProjectHuddle source code.

Using The Child Template System

This gives you more control over the layout of the template files. Any of the template files can be customized via a theme or child theme.

  1. First, create a folder in your theme or child theme called project-huddle.
  2. Copy the individual template files located in the templates folder of the plugin.
  3. Make edits to the template files you've placed in your theme or child theme's project-huddle folder.


The folder structure in your theme or child theme must match the folder structure of the plugin. For instance, if you move a template file from the projects folder of the plugin, you must place it in a projects subfolder in your theme's project-huddle folder.
