There are 2 main ways you can edit a Review Request email template using advanced methods.

⚠️ Warning: This section requires knowledge of Liquid/HTML syntax. Please consult your developer or our support team for help with customization.

1. Custom Theme Editor (Liquid/HTML)

Custom email themes can be applied to all Review Requests future and present. They allow you to make your emails fit your company's brand and style.

How to Create a New Theme

You can create and use custom email themes by clicking on the Customize link in the Review Request Message customization section.

After clicking customize you'll be given the option to name and edit your new theme.


Custom Theme Variables (Liquid)

There are a few variables that you can use:

Name

Required

Description

Example Value

{{ content }}

yes

This contains all the content from the current message being sent. You'll be able to customize the content later for each campaign.

<div>Hello world</div>

{{ unsubscribe_url }}

yes

This is a URL that can appear in a link or directly to give the customer a way to not get contacted again by Fera.

https://example.com/unsubscribe

{{ sender.display_name }}

yes

This is the sender's display name. Each campaign can have a separate sender name, but usually, it's the same for all your messages.

Joe @ JoesShoeStore.com

{{ sender.display_picture }}

no

A URL to the sender's display image, if available and configured. This is not a required field.

https://example.com/img.png

Once you're happy with the content then hit the Save button on the top right of the editor.

{% for line_item in order.line_items %}
<li>
<a href="{{ line_item.product.url }}"><img src="{{ line_item.product.thumbnail_url }}" style="height: 15px; width: auto; margin-right: 6px;">{{ line_item.name }}</a> x {{ line_item.quantity }}

{{ submission_url }}

This is the URL that you should send the customer to in order to submit content (reviews, photos, videos).

String

📝 Note: If the order contains multiple items Fera will automatically iterate through each item when they write the review, so only one submission URL is needed.

Example Custom Content Customization

Here is an example of some custom content that shows the order number, loops through each order line item and shows the image, product URL link and item quantity:

<p>Hi {{ customer.first_name }},</p> 
<p>We're following up on order <b>#{{ order.number }}</b>. How was it?</p> <ul>
{% for line_item in order.line_items %}
<li>
<a href="{{ line_item.product.url }}"><img src="{{ line_item.product.thumbnail_url }}" style="height: 15px; width: auto; margin-right: 6px;">{{ line_item.name }}</a> x {{ line_item.quantity }} </li>
{% endfor %}
</ul>
<p><a href="{{ submission_url }}"><b>Write your reviews here!</b></a></p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
