Hi there,

Today, we’ll guide you how to change the email’s header and footer sent to the users in FreelanceEngine.

The email functions are located in “class-ae-mailing.php”. The email content is included in this code:


Therefore you can modify email’s header and footer by overriding 2 functions: get_mail_header, get_mail_footer.

These functions also have a filter which helps you to hook in and change the content in email’s header/footer. You can learn more about WordPress add_filter here

Email’s format is HTML Table.

You can take a look at the example below for details:

add_filter('ae_get_mail_header', 'ae_custom_mail_header');
function ae_custom_mail_header($mail_header) {
 $mail_header = '<html>
 <body style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;font-size: 0.9em;margin: 0; padding: 0; color: #222222;">
 <div style="margin: 0px auto; width:600px; ">
 <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr style="">
 <td style="padding: 10px 5px 10px 20px; width: 20%;">

 <span style="text-shadow: 0 0 1px #151515; color: #b0b0b0;">Description</span>
 <tr><td colspan="2" style="height: 5px;"></td></tr>
 <td colspan="2" style="background: #ffffff; color: #222222; line-height: 18px; padding: 10px 20px;">';
 return $mail_header;

add_filter('ae_get_mail_footer', 'ae_custom_mail_footer');
function ae_custom_mail_footer($mail_footer){
 $mail_footer = '</td>
 <td colspan="2" style="padding: 10px 20px; color: #666;">
 <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <td style="vertical-align: top; text-align: left; width: 50%;">Copy right</td>
 <td style="text-align: right; width: 50%;">INFO</td>
 return $mail_footer;

Here’s the result:
