If using the Software Licensing add-on, the following information is shown as well:

  • License keys. Links to the Site Manager in Easy Digital Downloads.

Testing the plugin locally.

You can set the plugin in some test mode. Set HELPSCOUT_DUMMY_DATA to true and HELPSCOUT_DUMMY_DATA_EMAIL to an email address in wp-config.php to let the plugin use dummy data. You can then call directly and get a reply based on the value of HELPSCOUT_DUMMY_DATA_EMAIL.


The source code comes with plenty of hooks to add and change output and behavior.

You can also override section templates by hosting your own version of them under wp-content/themes/{THEME}/edd-helpscout/. E.g., copy views/orders.php to wp-content/themes/{THEME}/edd-helpscout/orders.php to change the output of the orders in Help Scout.
