Emails

Email Appearance

You can choose between sending plaintext or HTML emails. The difference is that HTML emails can include colors, images and other styling while plaintext emails are, well, plain text.

HTML emails can be enabled or disabled from the dashboard by navigating to the ‘Email’ link in the panel. From there, you can also send test emails and configure HTML emails.

HTML Emails

You can customize the way your forum’s HTML emails look by navigating the ‘Email’ link in the dashboard’s panel. If HTML emails are enabled, you can add or remove an email logo and customize an email’s colors.

Configurable HTML Email Settings

Here are the configurable settings for HTML emails. From the settings page, you can preview the colors of your email before saving.
