Allow Custom Logo in Email Header, and allow Header and Footer to accept HTML Content

I downloaded and installed a simple Email Template plugin that I like. Here’s the link– (

The only difference between that one and BuddyPress is that it let’s us add our Custom Logo: which is good for branding.

1.) Can BuddyPress add this functionality to make it possible for us to add our Logo by default?

2.) Can BuddyPress make it possible for the Header to accept HTML Content?

This will be good for us to achieve more flexibility and control.

If BuddyPress will take it a step further, it should make it possible for us to pull dynamic Content into the Header and Footer, and then be able to style these with plain CSS.

a.) Add icons or Logo to Email Footer.
b.) Add your Social Media handles to Footer.
c.) Move the “Subscribe” text to Left, Middle or Right position.
d.) Use HTML on Header and Footer, to add certain elements like Dashicons, Font Awesome icons, and so on.

e.) Make the Email Template a Drag-and-Drop Feature built with Blocks, and can be saved as Email Templates.

Thanks for your understanding in implementing this request.

You can already achieve a, b, c, d by overriding the email template from your active theme. You simply need to copy the bp-templates/bp-nouveau/buddypress/assets/emails/single-bp-email.php file into a /buddypress/assets/emails/ directory of your theme. Once there you can do your edits.

About e) I believe we'll first try to do this for regular BuddyPress content when the WP FSE feature will be stable enough. I'm unsure we'll do it for email templates. Of course if someone want to contribute to BuddyPress to add it, we'd be very happy.
