I'm upgrading to 1.9.1 and I'm embracing the RWD email templates. Where are the totals generated for the transactional emails? The order totals are breaking the table (see image). I can't find what's building getChildHtml('order_totals')

It's not /app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/email/order/totals/wrapper.phtml

And it's not /app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/email/order/items/order/default.phtml

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Found it. The email totals are created by /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/sales/order/totals.phtml



in the RWD theme files is also important which contains a section called:

Email layouts section

which contains the template path to the wrapper.phtml file mentioned in the initial question.


Make sure you empty and refresh your cache if you upload the sales.xml file to your own theme (\app\design\frontend\xxxxx\default\layout\sales.xml) if you don't already have a sales.xml file which worked for me in addition to adding the files in the following RWD template folders to my own theme (eg. \app\design\frontend\xxxxx\default\template):
