Change Default CSS for user notifications

  1. Hello,

    How can i change the default CSS for user notification emails?

    I have 20 forms and i do not want to use inline CSS in all forms. I think it would be much easier to change the default template.

    thanks
    Andy

  2. You can't modify the default inline CSS without changing core plugin files which isn't recommended. If you don't like the default styling, then you can create your own HTML markup/styles in the notification settings. The default styles are only applied to the {all_fields} merge tag. If you use the individual field merge tags, you can craft your own HTML confirmation messages to suit your preferences.

  3. ok then Kevin thanks for this.. would you happen to have a nice handy basic template to start with, compatible with all popular email clients?

    I could then modify this to suit my needs. It's fine to have a header I suppose and put all the CSS there...

  4. Well, the default IS the template.. it's compatible with most of the popular email clients and most of the reason is that it DOES use inline CSS rules. Trust me, if all the clients supported remote/external CSS then I would have done it that way to begin with.

    As it stands, standardization/support for HTML emails is very very limited so we have to go old school sometimes to get it done.
