Ideas Settings

Ideas comes pre-loaded with settings to change how your site functions. The basic settings for Ideas can be found under the Settings page in the Ideas Theme menu.

Settings are organized by Tabs and grouped by the type of settings they relate to. The settings menu is located under Ideas Theme > Settings.


In this page you’ll find the main options for the Ideas theme:


Ideas comes with some basic appearance options to allow you to personalize your site. Further appearance modifications should be done using a child theme.


These options let you specify limits on the number of votes and displayed ideas.

Options on this Tab (Ideas Theme > Settings > Email) are used to configure some email details used on the email notifications sent from your site:

Email Settings (Ideas Theme > Settings > Email)

Configure what users will see on the email details when they receive email notifications.

Idea Approved

Most of the email notifications are not yet customizable but you can freely change the content of the email sent for new approved Ideas. Additionally, there are variables you can use on the email body to enrich your email.


This Tab groups all the settings that relate with resetting ideas or user votes. Additionally, you can reset votes for users or ideas, individually, on profile and ideas pages, respectively. Resetting users votes updates their casted votes to 0. Resetting ideas votes updates all opened ideas votes to 0.

Available options:

Automatic Reset

The Ideas theme can reset users votes each month. Otherwise, you’ll need to reset users votes manually.

Reset All Votes

Bulk reset is available through these options. Be careful using bulk reset. It cannot be undone. The reset is triggered as soon as you save changes.
