Template files

All plugin outputs can be changed via user defined HTML templates. Just put the templates you want to overwrite inside your theme folder (no matter if parent theme or child theme). You can find the default templates in the plugin folder in "templates/". You can find a list of the available templates here. Please do not modify the original templates! You would lose all your modifications when updating the plugin!
