Hi and thanks for beautiful theme, perfect for restaurant!!! ;)

where here possible rename the “food” directory?

Thanks and sorry for the english!

Themovation

Hi pacorishi, thanks! :) There is actually a bug in the latest version of WordPress, 3.5.1 where inserting a gallery can give that error. WP has said that it will be fixed in the next version, but for the time being you can do the following:

Open your content on the HTML tab and find the gallery shortcode – it should look like this:
[gallery]
then you just have to add the attribute link=”file” like this:
[gallery link="file"]

Then save and it should work. As for renaming the “food” directory, the thing is that it’s not just a directory, it’s actually a taxonomy (http://bit.ly/hy475q) so it’s possible but it would require some editing of code. Cheers!

Hello

I recently transferred this theme to my main domain and had to update all my links, but cannot seem to remember how I changed the favicon image. It is still showing the old site’s. Wasn’t this an option in the theme options section??

Themovation

Hi siqve006, there isn’t a theme option for changing the favicon but it’s easy to do. I’ve included a link to the WordPress article here.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Favicon

I find that favicons often get cached and so cleaning your browser’s cache might help. Cheers! :)

Is this themes work on PHP 5.4.13.? and Can I have more then one Gallery Page?

Themovation

Hi Ronty, if wordpress works on PHP 5.4 then our theme should too. The highest I’ve actually tested it on was 5.3.3 . I’ll see if I can get my hands on a server running 5.4 Cheers.

i am using a plugins(Global Posts Ordering wordpress.org/extend/plugins/global-posts-ordering/installation/ ) to re-order to work

a. I have Edit the Function.php and Add this code if ( class_exists(“global_posts_ordering”) ) { $global_posts_ordering = new global_posts_ordering(array(“food”)); } b. i have edit the food_menu.php and add this at line 165 ‘orderby’ => ‘menu_order name date’,

its working fine. i was wandering this change will make any issue in long rang.

Themovation

Hi ronty!

RE: remove LIGHTBOX gallery

We have not included this as a theme option yet but you if you feel comfortable editing php I can show you were to add this to the food menu shortcode. Please email us on our authors profile page: http://themeforest.net/user/Themovation

RE: Change a Display order of food menu items

The best way to do this right now is to use the publish date. We are planing on a drag and drop feature but that won’t be ready for a while.

RE: Edit the Function.php

It’s always best to create a child theme and then create a functions.php inside that child them. That way you can always upgrade to the latest version of the theme without causing issues. Having said that, if you remember your changes you should be fine.

Yes i will use a Child themes now to change my code.

Themovation

Are you using the child theme to change the light box setting? This might require you to add more than one file to your child theme. The shortcodes are part of the core framework so it makes editing them in a child theme more involved. I sent a direct email to you so we can help you make that custom change.

Hi…I wanted to know if it was possible to add sub-text under Menu Groups. Example: Sandwiches (menu group) – Served Daily from 12-6 (sub-text underneath).

Thanks and great theme btw!

Themovation

Hi alonomix, Thank you :) Yes that’s very possible, it just may require a slight change to how you use the shortcode. What we recommend for this situation is to use the food menu shortcode with showtitles=0 and then manually input the title above it with the description below that. For example, you would put the following into the page content:

<h2 class="menu-title">Sandwiches</h2>
Served Daily from 12-6
[foodmenu groups="sandwiches" showtitles=0 showsubtitles=0]
Depending on how you’re currently using the shortcode you may just have to change it to use the shortcode 3 times on the page- first to output the groups above and then to output the groups below that as well. That should give you what you’re after. Cheers

Hey, Thanks for creating a great theme!

I seem to be having issues with my homepage. I set it up so there’s some text at the top, a blog feed, and a facebook activity feed. However, when I set it as my front page, nothing works. The blog feed won’t load at all. (Actually the Facebook activity feed itself won’t even load if that’s a hint to what could be causing this)

Any ideas of how to get this to work? If you want to view it, visit www.shipwrightspei.com

Thanks a bundle! Ashley

Themovation

Hi Ashley! Thanks for using Eatery for your project. So you setup your blog as your homepage (under Settings / Reading) or are you using the blog feed shortcode? Perhaps you can contact us via our author profile and send us some login credentials so we can have a closer look?

Cheers!

What is the image size of photo to use just one photo across the header? Thank you.

Themovation

Hi MSBlogger, the size we use for our demo is 1699px × 340px – but the height is the important part as the width is centered and will fit to the various screen sizes.

Default-user

Thank you so much.

I have is how can I add another field, phone number, to the template for Reservations) I noticed yours has a phone number whilst my copy do not have that field.

Also, what is the field next to Month and Date for? It looks like it has a pull down list and it has been grey out.

Cheers,

Themovation

Hi MSBlogger, the newest version of the theme has the phone number included. If you download and update your theme you will automatically have phone included on the reservation form.

Cheers!

Hello, Is there any chance to integrate with woocommerce or jigoshop plugins or any best options available for buy items ….....

Thanks in advance

Themovation

Hi jamicakalvin, we didn’t build in specific e-commerce plugin compatibility, but there are certainly e-commerce plugins that should work just fine. WooCommerce looks like a great option. We haven’t personally tested it, but it’s a popular one, it’s free, and I think it should work well with Eatery. Cheers!

Default-user

Wow! very quick respond Thanks and appreciated…actually we are working for Mrs. playter’s restaurant website, she already have normal theme with her, we tested with woocommerce and jigoshop but unfortunately not looks professional until we need to do lot of work… while we prefer to tested with some of others which are compatiable woocommerce or jigoshop but still wish to customize your theme if possible…

We are actually experienced php shopping cart scripts , but just few weeks ago started also wordpress customization ….......

Shall be thankful to you for your time anyway…..

Themovation

Okay I see. Well in our experience, WooCommerce looks to be the best option. I don’t have another plugin that I would recommend above that, and I would think adding in a custom script would be even more work.

Hi. Just bought the theme. I was reading the documentation about setting the child theme, but sincerely I don’t see which file to upload because I don’t see any other zipped file theme, like the one of the parent them. Can you kindly guide me through this? Thank you

Themovation

Hi there, sorry for the confusion. The child theme is provided as a folder which can just be copied over via FTP. The folder is called “eatery-child” with some folders and files inside of it. Make sure to copy only that folder into the themes directory and then it can be activated. If you don’t have FTP access, you could zip the folder and then upload it that way. I will revisit the documentation and look at including a zipped version of the child theme in the next release. Cheers!

Good Evening, i purchasing the Eatery theme, How do you remove the “Eatery comes with a Sidebar Menu. See the help file to learn how to add? sidebar navigation.” Can’t find it anywhere… Thanks Lorena

Themovation

Hi Lorena, to remove the sidebar message, you just need to add a WordPress menu, from Appearance > Menus. The help file is located in the download package, and also online (http://bit.ly/W02DAI). Cheers!

Hi. How to use blog feed shortcode with excerpt and other options? Now it’s impossible to use, as it’s always shows the whole text of posts even if we write an excerpt in its post field, so that it’s extremely long if using it in the sidebar. Thanx

Themovation

Hi kkri, our theme fully supports the use of the “more” link tag (http://bit.ly/cU8Nxu) instead of the excerpt since it provides a nice ‘Read more’ link which we find more helpful. So that can be used with the blog feed shortcode. It’s really just intended to be used in the page content area though, so the spacing and such may not be ideal in the sidebar, but it does work. In the sidebar, you may want to use the Recent Posts WP widget instead. Cheers.

The shortcode does exactly what category pages do from the WP core, and I like shortcodes as they add something new that WP can’t do. My post are always short and have a few test as it’s a coffee bar, so it has not a lot to say as news and so on, so I can’t break with a “more” tag, a few lines of text also in the single post. The Recent Posts WP shows only a link and a date, no thumbnails and meta and … nothing. Regards

Themovation

The main difference between the shortcode and the WP blog pages is that you can insert text and other shortcodes above and below the blog feed shortcode, whereas the blog pages are strictly posts, nothing else. Also you can display just the latest say 1 or 2 posts from any category with the shortcode.

If you’d like to use it in the sidebar without read more links, you could set it up as I explained, and then just add the following CSS to the Custom CSS box in the Theme Options:
a.more-link {display:none}
Then the “more” tag would be just like an excerpt.

Hi!

Is there a way to have tabs within tabs? The menu for my client’s restaurant is pretty extensive and I think it would be nice to have Steak, Seafood, Pasta, etc. in tabs within the Dinner Entrees tab.

Thanks!

Themovation

Hi rapportenvato! Thanks for using Eatery.

The closest thing I could think of was columns inside of tabs and I made an example for you here: http://demo.themovation.com/eatery/tab-and-columns/

Nested tabs won’t work with our tab shortcode, at least not right now. We’ll add this suggestion to the wishlist and see if we can make time for it during our next release.

[tabwrap]
[tab title="Dinner"][one_half]
[foodmenu groups=breakfast showtitles=1 showsubtitles=1][/one_half]
[one_half_last]
[foodmenu groups=lunch showtitles=1 showsubtitles=1]
[/one_half_last][/tab]
[tab title="Entrees"][/tab]
[/tabwrap]

Cheers!

Hello, Thanks for your time and quick response! Is this possible that you do integration with woocommerce or jigoshop and charge some extra for the theme with woocommerce option…?

If yes…please letus know or if some would like to share money with me to pay this guy to do e-commerce with this theme ….

Thanks in advance

Themovation

Hi jamicakalvin, I will install WooCommerce and see how it is right out of the box with our theme, to get an idea of what work would be involved. If you send us an email through our author profile page (http://bit.ly/11LFXDr) then we can discuss and see what we can do. Cheers!

Hi, How do I show the hours and minutes on Reservation Page to display AM and PM? Currently displaying 24 hours when selecting from hour field. Cheers!

Hi MSBlogger, there is an option for that in the admin > General tab . Uncheck ‘Use a 24 hour clock on the reservation form vs AM / PM’

Hi, Could I have two tab menus on the same page? It seems to duplicate the earlier number of tabs and would not let me define fewer tabs in the 2nd tab menu? I was trying to insert a food tab menu and a drink tab menu on the same page.

I think I see what you are asking about. We’ll look into this. Thanks.

Hi, Is there a way to have a background image or color to the page, so that is not too blend when presented on smart phones? Cheers

Themovation
Hi MSBlogger, we designed the theme with a white page background in mind, but if you want to go that route you could just add the following code to your Custom CSS box in the Theme Options:
#inner-content {background-color:#888;}
That would make it a grey color, or you could change it to background-image and use that instead. Cheers!

Hi, first I want to thank you for this great theme. I have a question, how do I add the foodmenu with two colums and no links? Thanks in advance.

Themovation
Hi spirit1977, Thanks! Glad you’re enjoying the theme. Here is the code for a two column menu:
[one_half]
<h4>Lunch Specials</h4>
[foodmenu groups=home-specials showtitles=0 showsubtitles=1]
[/one_half]
[one_half_last]
<h4>Wine List</h4>
[foodmenu groups=home-wines showtitles=0 showsubtitles=1]
[/one_half_last]
In the backend, on each menu item right below where you specify the prices and descriptions, there’s a checkbox to disable the link. Cheers!

Hi. Two questions:

1) Would like to add a simply little image (a cup of coffee) at the top of inner content to use as the background but with no-repeat , and a tiled image as the real background. How to do it from the theme options panel?

2) how to have a full-width home page in order to have it without the sidebar and being able to add several shortcodes to custom it as needed? The theme has the normal page and the reservation one only: could you add some more templates? The full-width one I think would be very appreciated from everyone.

Thank you so much.

Themovation

Hi kkri,

RE: cup of coffee + background image: The theme comes with two options for background images. One is for the sidebar background (tiled) and the other is for the page background (tiled). You also can control the background color for all parts (sidebar b/g, page b/g and website b/g). For your customizations you can use the custom CSS area to write your own code. You can virtually do anything with the custom css box.

RE: Full width template. The theme is designed to work with a sidebar as it contains the main navigation and also the widgets. In order for us to create a full width template we would need to remove the sidebar and therefore move the navigation to the top (perhaps as a horizontal nav). I’m not sure that would work well.

Thank you for your suggestions. If you have any other ideas please let us know. We always appreciate feedback.

Thank you for using Eatery. If there is anything else we can help with please let us know.

Maybe I was not too clear, but, sorry, I’m Italian and probably my English is not too good. I need to use a frontpage with an images slider only, no sidebar, no navigation, no header, no footer, only the slider and a button or images linking to the index.php, the rest will be all inside, in the index .php and the other pages. I began creating it and I did something similar, but definitely I’m not a programmer and not able to do it at all. but I see it’s not so difficult. The page should be totally different from the others, only a new page template with a big container where adding a shortcode (for the slider) or text, or images. If it is impossible, please can you drive me to do this creating an index.html without causing problems to the rest of the theme. Think should be useful to many others to introduce the site or to promote specific events or promotions for restaurants and so on. Many thanks.

Themovation

Hi kkri, what you’re describing is possible, and could be done a couple of ways. As you mentioned you could use a page template but it would require quite a bit of customization which is outside of the scope of what we can offer for support. Since what you’re looking for is a landing page separate from the theme itself, there may also be plugins that offer this functionality that you could look into. Cheers.

I see that you are trying to adapt the theme to woocommerce. It will be at disposal to everyone or I’ve to pay extra? I’m very interested in your theme but the only think that doesn’t work is the compatibility with a shop pluggin.
