Using the Theme Widgets

The Restaurant theme has it’s own special custom featured content widget, designed to give you that little bit more power over your sidebar and what it displays. We also make use of the Opentable Reservation widget (which can be downloaded for free from the WordPress Plugin Repository) and the widgets which are included with WooCommerce.

Theme widgets can be accessed via the “Appearance > Widgets” tab via your WordPress admin area. Simply drag the desired widget into the sidebar of your choice to display.

Featured Content widget: Add a featured image directly into your sidebar, great for display a recipe of the month, dish of the day, or staff picture. Add a title, set the image height in pixels and add a short description for the content and a link.

Open Table Widget: Add a title, choose how you’d like to accept reservations, enter your business details and opentable do the rest. Additional display and content options within this widget allow you to tweak the style and content further, but we’ve already added styling for this widget so it’s looks great within the theme!
