In this lesson, we’ll show you how to add the GiveWP emails page to the frontend dashboard. Your users will be able to use this page to set up the emails that will be automatically sent when donors send a new donation, when a new donor registers, etc.
Just follow these steps:
1- OPEN YOUR FRONTEND DASHBOARD SITE
Go to Network Admin > WP Ultimo > Sites.
Find the frontend dashboard site and click on Manage.
Click on Dashboard to open the wp-admin panel of your frontend dashboard site.
2- ADD A NEW PAGE TO THE FRONTEND DASHBOARD SITE
Go to Pages > Add New.
Enter the page title, select Elementor canvas as the page template, and click on Edit with Elementor.
Once you’re in Elementor, click on Add Template to import the frontend dashboard template.
Once you find the frontend dashboard template, click on Insert.
3- Display the Emails settings page on the frontend
Paste the following shortcode on the page content section to display the emails page from the GiveWP settings on the frontend dashboard:
After pasting the shortcode, click on Preview changes to view the payment gateways on the frontend.
4- Set up the Emails page on the frontend
You need to use the Quick Settings panel on the left side of the screen to set up the Emails page on the frontend.
Start by selecting this information:
- Page title: Emails
- URL slug: emails
- Page template: Elementor Canvas
- Add to this menu: Select the frontend dashboard menu.
Now you need to hide any elements your users won’t use to manage the emails on the frontend. For example, we can remove the Settings tabs from the page.
Just click on Hide element and then click on the element you want to hide.
You can also edit any texts on the page to change any GiveWP mentions with something like “our platform”.
- Click on Edit texts
- Change all the texts you want
- Click on Stop editing texts.
Before publishing the page, you can tick the Hide notices added by other plugins or themes checkbox.
You can also select the membership plans for which the page is available in This page is available for these WP Ultimo plans.
Finally, you can click on Save to apply the changes, and then publish the page.
This is what the emails page will look like on the frontend dashboard.
In the next lesson, we’ll show you how to add the customizer to the frontend dashboard to allow users to change site logo.
