Modifying template files
Certain areas of AffiliateWP use template files. You can freely modify these template files from your child theme, and in doing so, your modifications will not be lost when the plugin is updated.
Templates that can be modified
The email template folder includes the following template files:
body-default.php - Email body
footer-default.php - Email footer
header-default.php - Email header
The Creatives admin area
The affiliate dashboard
The URLs tab of the affiliate dashboard
The Stats tab of the affiliate dashboard
The Graphs tab of the affiliate dashboard
The Referrals tab of the affiliate dashboard
The Payouts tab of the affiliate dashboard
The Visits tab of the affiliate dashboard
The Creatives tab of the affiliate dashboard

How to modify the templates
- Find the template you'd like to edit from the plugin's template folder.
- Make a folder in your child theme (if it's not there already) called affiliatewp and copy the template from the plugin into it.
- Modify the template file to your liking and upload the new folder, along with the template files inside it, to your website.
When editing the email templates, please ensure that you add your template files to the affiliatewp/emails folder.
A quick note on child themes
You may have noticed that we suggest placing these template files inside your child theme. This is because if you are using a theme which is updated regularly by the theme's developer, you will lose the newly created affiliatewp folder, along with all the templates inside.
Always use a child theme when making any modifications to your theme. More information about child themes, and how to create one can be found at https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes.
