01 - Getting Started - top

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress. For instructions on how to install and setup WordPress please see the WordPress website. http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

  1. Installation - top

    To install the theme you must upload the theme file package and then activate it inside the WordPress Admin area. Themes can be uploaded in two ways:

    1. WordPress Upload: Once you are logged into your WordPress site navigate to Appearance > Themes > and click on the Install Themes tab. Next click on Upload and then Browse..., and select the zipped theme file. Click "Install Now" and the theme will be uploaded and installed.
    2. Manual FTP: Using an FTP program, upload only the unzipped theme folder (not the .zip file or all of the folders) into the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your website server.

    Once the theme is uploaded, you need to activate it. Go to Appearance > Themes and click activate below your newly uploaded theme.

  2. Permissions (optional)- top

    If you choose to enable TimThumb (image resizer), you may need to set folder permissions on your web server in order to use it.

    1. Manual FTP: Using an FTP program, navigate to the following folder [WEB ROOT]/wp-content/themes/eatery/includes
    2. Cache Directory - For TimThumb to work properly you need to have a cache directory called 'cache' inside the same folder as the timthumb.php file. - If it is not there, create one.
    3. Cache Directory Permissions - the cache directory should exist inside the same directory as TimThumb. It should have permissions set to 775.
    4. Still not working? Extra Cache Directory Permissions - if 775 doesn't work then you may find 777 will work.
    5. If you find TimThumb is still not working correctly, try the following resources to resolve any problems you may have: Binarymoon.co.uk | The Buzz Media | HostGator TimThumb Help
  3. Demo Content (optional)- top

    Included in this theme package is an XML file of sample data that you can import to quickly and easily have your site look similar to the demo site. Importing the XML file will add posts, categories, pages, comments, events, food menu categories, food menu items and navigation menu content.

    1. Locate the sample content file in the theme package. It's in a folder called demo content.
    2. From the WordPress dashboard, go to Tools > Import and click WordPress, then Install.
    3. After you activate the plugin, just select the file from your theme package and follow the instructions.

    Since some areas cannot be included in the Import file, you can follow the steps below to further match the demo site content.

    1. Homepage & Blog Setup - Go to Settings > Reading and set the Front page to display the page "Welcome to Eatery", and the Posts page to "Blog".
    2. Sidebar Specials
      1. In WordPress 3.5, the Link Manager was removed from the default WordPress install. For any new installs, or if you weren't making use of the Link Manager before upgrading, you'll first need to install the official WordPress Link Manager Plugin.
      2. Go to Links > Link Categories and create a category for your specials (eg. $5 Features)
      3. Add new links where the Name is the title of the item (eg. Chicken Salad) and the Web Address is the link to the menu item (eg. http://www.yourdomain.com/food/chicken-salad/)
      4. All other settings can be left as default.
    3. Permalinks - Go to Settings > Permalinks and set the Custom Structure to /%category%/%postname%/

    TIP: Though we feel that importing the demo content is the best way to get started, we also provide an alternative method if you do not wish to import the XML file. Included in the same directory in the theme download package are txt files where you can copy/paste one or all of the pages' contents into your site.

  4. Setting Default Homepage - top

    If you choose not to import the sample content and follow the steps, then by default WordPress displays your latest posts on the homepage. You may prefer to have a traditional page show instead. Here is how we do that.

    1. Go to Pages > Add New and create a new Page called 'Home', add some content and 'Publish'.
    2. Go to Settings > Reading and click the radio button beside 'A static page', then select the 'Home' page you created in step one from the 'Front page' dropdown list.
    3. Click the 'Save Changes' button.

    TIP: If you plan on adding a Blog to your website you will also need to create and select a page for your blog posts. You can do this under Settings > Reading and use the 'Posts page' dropdown list.

The second option 'Disable Responsive / Semi-Fluid' turns off the responsive functionality, so the website does not reformat itself for smaller screen sizes, and instead optimizes the site for what's considered to be the current lowest common resolution (1024 x 768) while still expanding slightly larger for the larger size monitors. The third option 'Disable Responsive / Fixed' turns off both the responsive and fluid functionality and is fixed at the lowest common resolution.

    Add Drop caps, Highlighting and Pull quotes to style your content. Use the 'Typography' toolbar dropdown menu in the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) that comes bundled with WordPress to add shortcodes for you. You can select text before choosing a shortcode to wrap shortcodes around the selected text. You can also copy and paste the examples below directly into the Page or Post Editing Area to use shortcodes.

    Drop caps
    1. [dropcap1]E[/dropcap1]

      » to add a drop cap style 1 to the letter E
    2. [dropcap1shade]E[/dropcap1shade]

      » to add a drop cap style 1 with color to the letter E.
    3. [dropcap2]E[/dropcap2]

      » to add a drop cap style 2 to the letter E.
    4. [dropcap2shade]E[/dropcap2shade]

      » to add a drop cap style 2 with color to the letter E.
    Highlighting
    1. [highlight]text to highlight[/highlight]

      » to highlight text with style 1
    2. [highlight style="dark"]text to highlight[/highlight]

      » to highlight text with style 2
    Pull quotes

    Add pull quotes to cite customer testimonials. There are 4 different styles and alignment settings that you can use to get your pull quote looking just right.

    1. [pullquote aligntext='left' alignblock='right' cite='~ Customer' style='style01'] Amazing Food, Excellent Service [/pullquote]

    2. [pullquote aligntext='left' alignblock='left' cite='~ Customer' style='style02'] Amazing Food, Excellent Service [/pullquote]

    3. [pullquote aligntext='left' alignblock='right' cite='~ Customer' style='style03'] Amazing Food, Excellent Service [/pullquote]

    4. [pullquote aligntext='left' alignblock='left' cite='~ Customer' style='style04'] Amazing Food, Excellent Service [/pullquote]

  2. Column Shortcode - top

    Arrange your content in columns for better organization. Use the Columns drop-down inside the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to help you wrap the shortcode around selected text or just to display a sample of this shortcode to get you started.

    A two column example
    1. If you wanted to create a two column layout you may start off with the following:

      [one_half] This text goes into the first column of two [/one_half]
      [one_half_last] This text goes into the second column of two [/one_half_last]

    2. The above shortcode example would give you two columns one would appear floating left the other floating right.
    3. Add this shortcode anywhere in the Page or Post Editing Area or use the 'Columns' dropdown the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to have WordPress add it for you.
    4. Click the 'Save Changes' button.
    Another two column layout example with different column proportions
    1. In this example one of the columns will take up space three times the proportion of the first column.

      [one_fourth] Take up the room of one column [/one_fourth]
      [three_fourth_last] Take up the room of three columns [/three_fourth_last]

    2. Add this shortcode anywhere in the Page or Post Editing Area or use the 'Columns' dropdown the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to have WordPress add it for you.
    3. Click the 'Save Changes' button.
    TIP: There are many different column layouts you can achieve with this shortcode. Experiment and you will see there are plenty of possibilities.
  3. Buttons Shortcode - top

    Create a button using any of the 11 preset colors or set your own.

    1. Use this shortcode on any Page or Post
    2. Here is an example of a Gray button style:

      [button link="#ENTER-URL-HERE" color="gray"]Gray[/button]

    3. Add this anywhere in the Page or Post Editing Area or use the 'Buttons' dropdown menu in the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to have WordPress add it for you.
    4. Click the 'Save Changes' button.
    TIP: Choose from 11 different colors.
    1. gray, light-gray, red, orange, blue, pink, green, rosy, brown, purple, and gold.
    2. E.g.: To use the red color setting, construct your shortcode like so:

      [button link="#ENTER-URL-HERE" color="red"] Button Text Goes Here [/button]

      or use the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to auto create buttons.
    TIP: Use your own custom colors by altering the color attribute. Make sure to use a full 6 digit hexadecimal value including the # symbol.
    1. [button link="#ENTER-URL-HERE" color="#FFFFFF #000000"]Black and White[/button]

      The code example above would create a white button with black text. You can also use the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to create a custom colored button.
  4. Food Menu Shortcode - top

    To display your menu you must use the Menu Shortcode [foodmenu]. Add this to any page you wish to display the menu on.

    1. Go to Pages > All Pages and edit an existing page, or create a new one from Pages > Add New that will be used for your Food Menu.
    2. Add the shortcode [foodmenu] anywhere in the Page or Post Editing Area or use the 'Food Menu' icon in the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to have WordPress add it for you.
    3. Click the 'Save Changes' button.

    Examples of ways to use the Food Menu Shortcode:

    1. Display all Food Menu Groups and Food Menu Items + Show Titles and Show Subtitles, use:

      [foodmenu]

    2. Display a couple of specific Food Menu Groups

      [foodmenu groups=breakfast,lunch]

    3. Hide Food Menu Group Titles

      [foodmenu showtitles=0]

    4. Hide Food Menu Subtitles (for subgroups / nested groups)

      [foodmenu showsubtitles=0]

    5. Display 3 Groups and Hide both Titles and Subtitles

      [foodmenu groups=lunch-menu,dinner-menu,dinner-specials showtitles=0 showsubtitles=0]

    TIP: If you specify individual Food Menu Groups as in the example above, they will appear in the order you input them. At any time you can change the order simply by rearranging the names in the shortcode.
    TIP: The shortcode makes use of the food menu group slug, not the name itself, and slugs never contain any spaces as they determine the URL for the group. You can view the slug for each category in Food Menu > Menu Groups, on the right.
  5. Google Map - top

    Add a Google Map to your page or post.

    1. To display a Google Map by address:

      [map addr="556 BEATTY STREET PALO ALTO, CA" width="668px" height="400px" zoom="16"]

    2. Add anywhere in the Page or Post Editing Area or use the 'Map' button in the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to have WordPress add it for you.
    3. Click the 'Save Changes' button.
  6. Images and Lightboxes top

    Use the Image shortcode to display an image at any size you like, with an optional image lightbox.

    1. Display an image with a lightbox using a 100px x 100px thumbnail.

      [image src="http://FULL-PATH-TO-IMAGE.jpg" width="100" height="100"]

      [image src="http://FULL-PATH-TO-IMAGE.jpg" width="150" height="150" align="center"]

    3. You can add the 'title' attribute to have a title appear above the image lightbox

      [image src="http://FULL-PATH-TO-IMAGE.jpg" width="350" height="120" align="left" title="Sample image"]

    4. An example with lightbox disabled

      [image src="http://FULL-PATH-TO-IMAGE.jpg" width="500" height="300" align="right" lightbox="0"]

    5. Use this shortcode in the Page or Post Editing Area or use the Image button on the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (a.k.a. content toolbar) to have WordPress add it for you.
    6. Click the 'Save Changes' button.

    2. TIP: It's important to note that in order to use the slider_height attribute, you must first enable TimThumb in the Theme Options.
    3. For a Slider with one image that links to a page.

      [slideshow slider_width=668]
      http://FULL-PATH-TO-IMAGE.jpg, http://FULL-PATH-TO-LINK
      [/slideshow]

    4. For a Slider with two images and no links.

      [slideshow slider_width=668]

    9. Click the 'Save Changes' button.
    TIP: You can use a maximum of 1 Slider per Page. We do not recommend using the Slide Show shortcode on Posts.
