Dress up the Secondary Column of your Pizzaland Child Theme

Welcome to another tutorial in our series to recreate the Pizzaland Child Theme live demo.

The next step for us is to think about the secondary column of our demo. We’ll be adding widgets, the main navigation menu, and the social links.

Let’s get started!

Adding the Special Offer Teaser

Having a teaser that displays everywhere on the website is a great way to get more customers to visit your fantastic place of business.

We’ll be building this simple but effective teaser using the Food and Drink Menu Item Widget.

Here’s how.

Adding Business Info with the Text Widget

Adding your business info in the sidebar will help your customers to quickly find you or get in touch with you without having to look for your contact details.

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to recreate the details with opening hours, business address, phone number and email in the sidebar using the native Text Widget.

Here’s the bit of markup that you’ll see me add in the video, feel free to replace the text with info relevant to your business.

<h3>Pizzaland Restaurant</h3>

<p><b>Mon–Fr</b> : 12.30pm–3pm<br>
8pm–10pm<br><b>Sat–Sun</b> : 12.30pm–10pm

<h3>Piazza Colosseo, Rome</h3>

<p><b>Tel</b>:<a href="tel:+39555555555">+39 555555555</a><br>
<b>Email</b>:<a href="mailto:info@pizzaland.com">info@pizzaland.com</a></p>

Let’s create the Main Navigation

The navigation is a key component in any website. It’s important that your visitors see it clearly and can use it quickly wherever they are in the site.

Here’s how to recreate the main navigation in the Pizzaland Child Theme.

Let’s Create the Social Links

Social networking has become a big part of doing business in the Internet age. Make it easy to your site visitors to connect with you by placing links to your favorite social sites on the sidebar.

Here’s how.

The social links functionality in Pizzaland is inherited from the Twenty Fifteen parent theme. The following social sites are supported by the theme:

  • CodePen
  • Digg
  • Dribbble
  • Dropbox
  • Email (mailto: links)
  • Facebook
  • Flickr
  • Foursquare
  • GitHub
  • Google+
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn
  • Path
  • Pinterest
  • Pocket
  • Polldaddy
  • Reddit
  • RSS Feed (URLs with /feed/
  • Spotify
  • Skype
  • StumbleUpon
  • Tumblr
  • Twitch
  • Twitter
  • Vimeo
  • WordPress
  • YouTube
