I am stuck on menu cards, I can not find any sorting feature that allows me to sort all the products according to my in house menu.

redfactory

Hi,

We have a tutorial available for you on how to set up the menucard: http://www.redfactory.nl/themes/therestaurant/documentation/

It also explains how to sort the categories in any order you’d like :) The items itself are ordered by date. This means that if you want to sort them differently you can simply change the publish date.

Hope this helps!

thanks but the whole reason I bought this theme was for the menu card feature and find that it is poorly designed to do such a thing. I had to download 2 external plugins to allow me to sort by sub-category as the theme only picks up main categories, which under 4 different menus, with pretty much duplicate menus from different geographical locations but different prices, thus 2 same categories clash. So had to put them under a sub-cat. One plugin to sort out sub-cats and second to sort out the posts order.

Changing the dates was doing my head in as even with a few I started off with, I was making changes to the same post multiple times with the date to get them in order. I bought this so I could hand over the site back to my client when I was done and they would be able to maintain it.

So far my experience of this theme’s front end excellent, looks really good.

Back-end still needs a lot of work to streamline it, shouldn’t have to use 2 external plugins to do, what it should be doing, setting up a menu-card

So far these are my problems,

1. No sub-cat sorting 2. No posts sorting 3. No background image change option 4. Documentation really needs to be updated and the link in the download needs updated too, takes you to a dead link and the doc doesn’t cover the common set up or tips

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback! I really appreciate it! I’ve found the plugin you posted on our support forum and will recommend it to other users who might find it useful :) But first on my list is updating the documentation!

Cheers!

Hi all, I’m working on my friends website using this theme. It currently has cart66 but my friend wants woocommerce. After installing woocommerce the Slider has stopped working!

Can anybody help?

redfactory

Hi,

Do you maybe have a link for me so I can have a look?

Cheers :)

It’s gandhirestaurant.co.uk

Hi,

Firebug states that it’s a javascript error with the WooCommerce plugin. A quick search on google gave me this page on the WooCommerce website: http://docs.woothemes.com/document/jquery-cookie-fails-to-load/

If you follow the instructions there it should be fine. If it doesn’t work you can try and ask on the WooCommerce forums :)

Cheers!

Thanks a million, it worked.

first of all, sorry for my poor english…
1)
I’ve a page- template “blog”- page categories “news”- number of item per page “3”
2) the posts I’ve made, with category=”news” appears in the above page
BUT
in the page shows all the text, and not just few lines (as in your demo page)
http://www.redfactory.nl/themes/therestaurant/news/
and then “read more” button opens the full post

hope my question is clear enough
see here (my test page)

Hi,

I think you forgot to use the ‘more tag’ ;) You can find it in the content editor as a button. The more tag will seperate your content into two parts. The first part will be shown in indexes like the blog page, and the second part will also be shown when you display the whole article. I think that’s what you’re looking for :)

Cheers!

great ;-) thanks a lot

I don’t see a like us facebook widget here does this theme have one? Also, I just see one menu, but as a caterer, you need multiple menus is that possible? Could you have a top level navigation link for just menus and then the drop down menu point to the different menus and them all be sliding? Is the menu created as a page or is it created in a slider?

redfactory

Hi,

No this theme does not have a facebook widget integrated. However you can download a plugin for this and display it in the sidebar, frontpage or footer of the theme. A couple of other buyers have done the same :)

You can use as many menucards as you want. You can indeed make a top-level menu item and have a dropdown with different menucards. The menucard is a page that loads several posts depending on what category they’re in. You can select which categories you want to use for each menucard. Just make sure to use different categories for all those menucards. And yes, they will be sliding ;)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers!

wonder how can accomplish the text like in your menu example
see here:

I meant
Beers
all our beers are served…
or Warm dishes

please, see im my website, this page http://www.edodecapri.com/menucard/dinner/
“il crudo dal mare…”

thanks

redfactory

Hi,

Do you mean how I set up these subcategories? If you create a category, you also have the option to asign it to another category or “parent”. Child categories will automaticly show up under their parent categories on the menucard :)

Hope this helps!

I purchased this theme a couple of years ago. Yes, I understand it’s been a couple of years. I still have version 2 downloaded and backed up, but it’s a little buggy. It was a restaurant I was working for here locally a couple of years ago. Well, I came here to update it, and it’s not letting me download without purchasing again. What’s the deal with this?

Ha. Nevermind. Somewhere along the lines, I started a different account. I have the download now. Thank you so much for this.

redfactory

Hi,

Ok, glad you found it :) Have fun with the new version!

Hi, Is this theme has notification via restaurants POS System? Regards

redfactory

Hi,

Do you mean if you get a notification when someone places an order via the website? In the Cart66 plugin you can set up automatic receipts for customers, and a copy can be send to you as well. That way you know when an order has been placed. The orders are also listed in the backend, so you can look them up at any time. For more information on the cart66 plugin, check the following website: http://cart66.com/

I am interested in purchasing the theme, but had a question. Is it possible to show Facebook Fan Details and Recent Twitter tweets on the homepage? basically, can we extend the column and divide it into 2/3 and 1/3?

redfactory

Hi,

Well you can use the column shortcodes to make columns and use plugins for the facebook and twitter shortcodes. You can also use widgets for this, but the layout would be 3 times 1/3 and not 1/3 and 2/3 like you want.

Hope this helps :)

So i purchased the theme and come to find cart 66 is a paid for service. Can this be supplemented with woo commerce.

redfactory

Hi,

Actually, cart66 also has a lite version which is free :)

You can use WooCommerce as well, but you’ll need to style it yourself to match the theme since it’s not supported out of the box.

Cheers!

Any news on a Twitter widget update? Since the changes with the twitter API, this widget is not working anymore. Even after updating it to the latest version.

redfactory

Hi,

Yes I have an update ready! I will upload it shortly so everything works again for you :)

Hello,

Love the theme :)

I tried looking in the documentation, the comments on here, and the support forum (submitted it there to but no reply so i’ll try here).

How do you add the thumbnail images to the menu items? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

redfactory

Hi,

You can add images to menucard items by giving them a “Featured Image”. This can be set on the right side of the page :)

Cheers!

Ready to buy… if you answer this. Using the cart66, can people select all the products they want and book a table without payment ??? So we know what people is going to ask for but charging them in the restaurant. Thanks in advance!

I would like to use a Static Front Page for this theme because your theme’s frontpage has limited SEO functionality.

“How Do I Add The Custom Featured Content Widget To A Static Front Page?”

I’ve tried, but they will not show on a static page. They will only show when using the “Front page displays – Your latest posts” option.

What coding is needed to get them to show on a static page?

This functionality would be beneficial to have in any future update.

Thanks in Advance,

how should I proceed to update theme on my WP platform ? try to install over actual. but WP do not accept thanks

redfactory

Hi,

The best way of doing this is by unpacking the theme zip, and renaming the folder to let’s say “therestaurant5”. Then zip it up again and upload it to WordPress. WordPress will think it’s a different theme, but will keep all your settings :)

Cheers!

mausoftware

why unpacking, rename folder and unzip… is not possible to just change name of zip file ?

mausoftware

...but, anyway: it is sure that I do not miss anything of my actual setting and content

redfactory

Yes, this is sure :) And if anything goes wrong you can easily switch to the old version. The other way to update the theme is to overwrite the theme via FTP, or delete and reupload the theme. The renaming is just safer. The renaming is because WordPress looks at the folder inside the zip, and not the zip itself.

Cheers!

NOT WORKS AS EXPECTED. missed up totally the menubar

redfactory

Hi,

Have you asigned your navigation menus to a theme location under “Appearance -> Menus”? If you haven’t then that could be the cause of the messup. Please let me know :)

Cheers!

mausoftware

problem was “navigation mobile menu”. maybe this has cancelled also “main navigation menu” that was empty it works thanks

redfactory

Glad it works now! :)

woo commerce will be a good feature for this .. as it is free and supports many extensions and used by many people..it will surely boost your sales.. any chances of integrating it into this theme? i am planning to buy it..

redfactory

Hi,

Yes we had quite some requests for WooCommerce, so we might build it in in a future update. I can’t give you a timeframe at the moment though. Thanks for the feedback :)

Cheers!
