WordPress eCards Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will the shortcode work on any page in my site?
A: The eCard shortcode displays the eCard form anywhere on the site: public posts, public pages, restricted pages, gateway pages, custom post types and so on. If you use a payment plugin or a membership plugin to restrict access to certain area, eCard will work without a problem.
Q: Is there a way to add a border around the emailed eCard with CSS without updating all the card images?
A: No, there is no way of styling the email content.
Q: I get an error regarding
Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in /path/to/plugin/file.php on line XXX.
A: Upgrade your PHP version to 7 or higher.
Q: I have the plugin working on the site, but it’s not sending eCards?
A: Check your server logs for any mail related errors or create a dedicated email address on your server and add it to the Email Options tab or install an SMTP plugin or disable other email plugins.
Q: Can you send to multiple emails at the same time?
A: No, that would be spammy and your email address (and even the domain name) would be banned.
Q: If I want to allow my website visitors to send their own designed eCards, will this plugin allow front-end submission?
A: Yes, there is a user upload option/button which allows users to upload their own images.
Q: Can I use foreign characters, such as Russian, Scandinavian, Greek?
A: Yes. It also depends on your theme’s settings, as the plugin inherits the current site language.
WordPress eCards changelog
🌟 What customers are saying
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is the most awesome plugin I have used in a long time. My site funeral.com incorporated this into the site to allow users to send eCards to the bereaved. It’s Perfect, well thought out and works perfectly. Highly recommended and worth every penny. One can sell their eCards also which at this time we are experimenting with the free version.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ An excellent plugin and the customer support is superb. Any question I have had has been answered promptly and completely. Very happy!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Installed this plugin on a charity’s website and it’s working nicely. Features are pretty much what I’d expect. Glad it’s not overloaded with settings. It does seems improved, compared to an earlier version I tested a year or two ago. It’s a really important tool for us, because last Christmas we made ~£600 from donations by people clicking a link in e-cards. This year we’re aiming for over £1,000.
