UPDATE 22 October, 2014: We’ve had a bit of a shocker and the 2.0.8 version of the theme uploaded to WordPress.org was missing some critical files, causing sites to crash and become inaccessible. Honestly I can’t tell you how we managed to drop those between testing and submitting, it happened though and I’m very very sorry for the hassle it has caused many. There is now a new version, 2.0.9 available on WordPress which is all good, but that doesn’t help if you have updated to 2.0.8 and had it ‘crash’ your site. The only way to recover from 2.0.8 is to access your site via FTP and delete all the Restaurateur theme files from the …/wp-content/themes/ directory or overwrite them all with this latest version.

Restaurateur is a dedicated WordPress restaurant theme. The theme features custom post types for menu items so you can easily add a beautiful tabbed menu with your own categories and dishes (with prices), which will be featured in the home page slider. You can also customize the background imagery and welcome message on the home page, contact details, map location and social media icons. It’s a flexible and responsive theme which will look great on any device.

    • Hi Simon, this will require some customization of the theme template, a bit beyond the level of simple support we can provide here. If you need professional help we can estimate such changes, just email us at help@wpdevshed.com.

      The home page slider is already responsive to window size.

  1. This a nice theme, many thanks! I run a small cafe and this theme is going to fit the bill exactly.

    One question, is there any way to have the menu categories on a drop down menu, rather than linked from a page where every food item is randomly displayed?

    • Hi Paul, I’m not sure exactly what you mean, but I think the answer is no. The bundled menu plugin allows you to add menu items into categories (like Appetizer, Main, Dessert) and then display the menu using the menu template. The default display is all items in the menu, and then users can click the category links to filter the items by category….basically what you see on the demo is what you can do. You can order the menu items by setting the post dates appropriately and in this way ensure that all your main menu items are displayed top of the default view for example.

      • Thanks for the prompt reply. The menu system works well, I was just chancing my arm a bit asking that question :-) For free this is more than enough of a template.. cheers.

  2. Thanks. i used the first one and it is perfect for management too. one last question i neglected to ask yesterday because i thought i would figure it out; help me with the “menu” from scratch. i want it to appear xctly the same way it appears on the demo. where do i start? first of all, is that a page, a category, how do i add items, are dishes items, which page template do i pick etc etc

    • Thaba, the menu is powered by the bundled plugin that is prompted when you first install the theme. If you have installed this it will have created a new custom post type in your admin for “Menu Items”. You just add menu items using this custom post type (you can also create menu categories). To display the menu items as a page just create a new static page and use the Menu Items template. This will display all the menu items just like the demo.

      If you havn’t installed the plugin you’ll need to do this. If you dismissed the prompt to install the plugin when first installing the Restaurateur theme you’ll need to reinstall the theme to get this again.

      Cheers

  3. Hi,
    Using this theme and i like it very much. I did some customizing and did not make notes on changes made. I used ver 2.0.4 and i see it is asking me to upgrade to ver 2.0.5 What is the main differences between the 2 version before i proceed. Thanks for a great theme

  4. Hi Charles,
    Downloaded ver 2.0.5 and read the updates. They dont apply to me so is should not be a issue to run it like it is as i am not having any problems and not using the gallery. Great feature using the gallery so will keep that in mind later
    Thanks

  5. I’m in the middle of building my website and can’t for the life of me get a contact form to display correctly. I’ve tried three different plugins – FormBuilder, Contact Form 7, and now Fast Secure Contact Form and all have the same problem: the form looks fine in the plugin’s preview, but when displayed in the theme the style is reset to the most basic fonts and such ever and there are no radio buttons or checkboxes visible. Is there any way to make a form work, or a plugin that works specifically with restauranteur? It’s beautiful otherwise. =(

    • Hi @Diane,

      Thanks for using our theme

      It’s a theme issue and we’re working on it and provide fix asap, so for now you can fix it by removing “-webkit-appearance: none;” in style.css at line #117

      Hope that helps

  6. Love the theme… new to WP, but not to HTML. Not sure how to ask without being confusing. I’ve create a many different menu categories to sort out my items, but everything loads to one main page and then you have to choice what sub you want to see from there. It it possible to get to those sub’s from the main structure menu, and not go to a page with everything is included on that page? Example: Apples would only show Apples and would be listed in the structure menu at the top of each page. Carrots would only show carrots, etc. Also, thanks for the info you posted for someone on the permalink, works nicely.

    • Hi Gail, I’m afraid that isn’t possible out of the box. The menu template is coded to display all , with the categories acting as filters as on the demo site.

  7. Hi, Thank you for the great theme. I am hoping you can help. I was testing a few images on the home page slider. I have removed them and added my new images, but the old images remain. I have cleared my cache and checked on another PC but the images are still there. Are you able to help?

    • Hi Nicky, yes this is a quirk of the way the theme handles images for the home page slider. It isn’t ideal, but easily overcome…

      The best solution is to remove all images from the page content, and instead use the regular WP gallery feature to embed a gallery of images into the page. The template looks for a gallery and will use the images in the gallery ahead of any others. This also makes it easy to manage the images in the slider (by updating the gallery). In the absence of an embedded gallery the way to remove the old images is to delete them permanently from the media library.

    • Hi Charles,

      Is that template editable to change it not to display all? I’m not an expert, but can handle some rewriting? Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Roberto, there is no setting for this. You would need to edit the template files to achieve this and then you may also need to tweak the style sheet to get it looking as you want.

      • Hi Charles,
        I also want to remove the images in the menu.
        I was able to tweak it with editing the HTML code on my page with firebug, so I already know what I want to edit. Also style.css is not a problem to edit.
        But where can i find the exactly part in the template files to have the same results like I edit in firebug??

        • Hi Gerald, go to Appearance > Editor and look for the two menu templates. You can edit those in the admin or via FTP. Keep in mind however that you should always set up the theme as a child theme before making any customizations so that they are not overwritten in the event that the parent theme is updated in the future (and it probably will be). Hope that helps.

  8. Hi,
    I may be having a similar issue as Diane. An embedded Wufoo form I am using for the Contact Us page is showing up fine until I view the error version (ie when a user doesn’t complete required fields)
    At that point the submit button is cut off from the bottom of the form.
    Is there a section of the style sheet I can tweak to allow the form to be viewed in full?
    Great theme thanks!

    PS there is a coming soon page up right now but I’d be happy to open the site up if you need to view.

  9. Hi – nice theme thanks. my question is when i resize my browser window the slider images are not shrinking proportionally – so images with faces looked ‘squished’ .. is that the trade-off for having a responsive theme? (is there an optimum size – mine are 960 x 350px?)
    Thanks.

    • Yes you can. You need to edit the footer.php file. Please be sure to set up the theme as a child first so future updates don’t overwrite your local customizations.

  10. I was following the video tutorial to customize the home page and I used 3 images just like in the video. I save the changes and try to preview the page. Now instead of the images, I get a text that reads “IMAGES ADDED TO THIS PAGE WILL APPEAR HERE” in capital letters. What can I do? Thank you!

    • Hi Daniel, try adding the images to the page as a regular WordPress gallery. If that doesn’t work can you share a link to your site?

  11. For the life of me I can’t figure out how to edit the items on the bottom of the “Sidebard Alt Home Page” – Latest Post – Categories – Archive – Recent Comments, other than to add new widgets to remove them. I’ll like to edit them rather than add a widget – the layout of the items in the demo is more appealing than when you add widgets. Thank you.

  12. I have two questions about the theme.

    Is it possible to use a full width slider plugin with this theme?

    and

    The description boxes in the menu plugin, can those boxes be color customized in the theme or are they always white?

    • Hi @angela

      Thanks for using our theme

      1. Actually it depends on the capability of the slider, e.g is the slider offer shortcode to display sliders? if so then yeah, you can create new page with Full with, no sidebar template in it
      2. Unfortunately yes, they’re always white, but if you’d like us to add that functionality for you then yeah we can do that, just email us at help@wpdevshed.com

      Hope that helps

  13. Hey Charles, I’m having trouble with the featured images and the slideshow images. Actually, I’m having trouble with every image I upload. It crops and shrinks and I don’t know how to make them show correctly and fully displayed. Thank you

    • Hi @Diego,

      Thanks for using our theme

      The slider uses the Attached Media on a specific page, e.g. you created Homepage(page), Choose homepage with static slider(page template), so the page is ready the next thing you do is choose Static page under Settings right? so if you view the your site it then started to display all attached images as the slider, so in short it use attached images as the image slider.

      For featured image this is just use for single post pages

      Hope that helps

  14. Hi! tnx for a great theme!

    I’m trying to change the text “MENU” in the mobile viewport. Ideal I would like to change it to a static image of the traditional three horizontal bars, associated with mobile menus.

    I just can’t find where i can change it in the different php templates? My best bet were in the “header.php”.

    p.s. I use v. 2.0.7.

  15. Is it possible to remove the photos from being presented in the menu, just title, cost and description? Sometimes photos don’t accurately represent whats being received.

    • Hi Shane, the whole layout of the menu with the price tags etc kinda depends on there being an image. You *could* edit the image out of the template but then you’d need to adjust the rest of the layout to fit as well. Unfortunately no setting to change this easily.

  16. I was having the same problem as Daniel (above), but I found a solution. I had originally set up the slider, and it worked correctly, but had an image I didn’t want. When I deleted it, that image would not go away so I ended up deleting the entire page and rebuilding it. This time, I got the message “IMAGES ADDED TO THIS PAGE WILL APPEAR HERE.” To fix it, what I had to do was upload the images directly to the page, rather than insert them from the previously uploaded images. Hope this helps someone else.

    • Thanks Del. The latest version also supports native WordPress galleries, and infact the home page template will look first for a gallery and use that for the slider if it finds one. So you can just add a regular WordPress image gallery to the page content and the images in that gallery will be used in the slider. This makes it easy to manage the images you want to display without the hassle of having to delete and rebuild page which is a bit of a hassle (sorry about that).

  17. For those out there that are looking for a solution to the photos on the menu in which you don’t want people to say…hey, why didn’t I get that! With Charles input I came with a solution that worked for me which was to “Shrink” the photos to keep a nice look without the ability of someone saying! Hey my hamburger doesn’t look like that! What I did was edit the stylesheet and changed the height from 128 to 20 as seen in the line below. Worked great. Thank you Charles for the help.

    .grid-box .imgthumb {
    position: relative;
    margin: 0 0 15px 0;
    height: 20px;
    overflow: hidden;
    }

    • Cool, glad you figured out a solution. You’re kind to say I helped…me thinks that you deserve 100% of the credit here!

  18. how do i change the slider images? i’ve created a homepage with 3 images, when i tried to replace the 3 images with 2 new ones, it just added the 2 new ones so i have a slider with 5 images now!?

    • Hi @abdul,

      Thanks for using our theme

      The theme slider uses Attached Media for slider, so you have to remove previous added images first and upload final slider images.

      Hope that helps

  19. Hello,

    I’m currently using this theme for a bistro. Is there a way to not use a featured image for the food? Or even make it more like a list?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Chris, no this isn’t possible out of the box. You would need to do some template customization to achieve that look.

  20. Hello,

    How can I change the default “MENU” txt in the navigation bar when in responsive mode?
    I’d like to either change the txt or add an icon. Thank you!

  21. Hi! Loving the theme, but I have two questions:

    1. How/where can I customize the browser window text (current it’s “A WordPress Site | Just Another WordPress Site” for the home, similar for other pages)?

    2. How to customize the footer text?

    I have watched your video, but did not see this info in it. Thank you!

    • Hi @ashley

      Thanks for using our theme

      1. You can update it under Settings -> General
      2. Footer text can be customize in footer.php file

      Hope that helps

    • Hi Kevin, this is a purposeful design choice. The height of each menu item depends on the length of the description and the title, so we use a masonery style (like pinterest) to stack up menu items. You’d need to play with the styles to fix it to a fixed grid.

  22. Hi,

    Is that possible to create two separate sets of menus (eg./ food and beverage menu)? If yes, how?

    Please help! Thank you!

  23. Hey Charles, amazing theme. Thank you so much for offering a truly great free business theme for WordPress. I have a question about the theme. It may be a simple question or it may have been asked before, I am not sure. Is it possible to turn OFF the search function and icon?

  24. Just one more question, is there a way to delete or replace the small ‘fork and knife’ icon that appears on the menu pages? thanks

  25. Is there a way to add links to the images of the home page slider? I’d like to create slides that link to direct posts

  26. Hello!

    Great theme, very user friendly. I have just one question. My search icon/function doesn’t seem to be working right/is pulling up weird results. I was looking to just get rid of the search icon and feature all together, however I can’t seem to get it to leave!

  27. Currently my websites do not have FTP access to them. How can I download the Restaurateur Menu Item CPT plugin so I can install it manually? I searched the WordPress library and only saw a plugin for online ordering which I do not want to implement right now.

    • Hi Gary, how did you install the Restaurateur theme? If you don’t have FTP access I presume you did this via the WordPress admin without needing FTP access yes? Assuming so then you can do the same with the Menu Item CPT. When you install the theme it prompts you to install the plugin. Just follow the prompts and you will be able to install it right from the admin.

      • Is there a link to download the plugin? Neither of these options work for my needs. I’d like to just install it manually.

        • Jason, this plugin only works with our theme as it requires the special templates bundled with the theme. If you install and activate the theme you will be prompted to install it from the admin.

  28. I downloaded the theme directly on the webserver and extracted it into the themes folder. However in the dashboard Appearance/Install Plugins it will only allow me to install the plugin via FTP. This is where my problem is as I don’t have FTP access on this server so I want to download the Restaurateur Menu Item CPT plugin and manually install it.

    • Righto. I’d ask your host to help you set the file permissions for your WP install so to make it easy to install and update themes and plugins via the admin. Will definitely make life easier. In any event you actually have the plugin already as it is bundled with the theme. Look in …/wp-content/themes/restaurateur/library/plugin/ You’ll find a zip file of the plugin there. Unzip this and move it to the plugins folder then activate via the admin.

  29. Found it right where you said it was, unpacked it and moved it to the plugins folder. Activated and it works like a charm. Thank you so much for your assistance!

  30. Hello there, I am setting up a bilingual website and using qtranslate plugin. I need to set the language option buttons right next to social media icons at the top right corner. Does anyone how to do this?

  31. Nevermind, I figured it out!

    Pictures that I was uploading to media were becoming attached to the home page. I installed an unattach plugin and was able to unattach the photos without permanently deleting them.

    • Hey KJ, the other thing you can do to control the home page slider is embed a regular WordPress gallery into the page. The template first looks for a gallery and if it finds one it will use those images for the slider…a much better way to manage the slider which we introduced to solve the problem of image attachment :)

  32. Hi. I want to have a few different header images created for the home page slider but i”m not sure what an ideal size would be to tell my graphic designer. When I use the header he first gave me the image looks too stretched out. Thanks!

  33. Hi. I wanted to have a few different header images designed for the Home page slider but not sure what size to tell my designer. When I use my current header there now it has a stretched out look…so I would like more accurate sizing if possible. Thanks.
    Also, is it possible to add a gallery of images (not for the slider) onto the home page? I tried to add an image gallery to the bottom of the home page..it shows up on my dashboard view but not on the site?
    Thanks for your help!

    • Hi Natalie, unfortunately no that won’t work as the home page template looks for a gallery to use as the slider. This would need some template code customization to work. You can of course add more images to the slider gallery.

    • HI Dave, there is no admin setting for fonts. You’ll need to get your hands dirty in the CSS (style.css). When customizing the theme like this you must also set up the theme as a child first so that future updates don’t overwrite your local customizations.

  34. Thanks for this a beautiful theme! But i have a question.

    Can i use the Qtranslate plugin with this theme. I ask you because I install it and when i activate it my navigation menus disappiar.(all pages are translated but only home page remained in the menu) Can somebody help me to solve this problem???

    Thank you.

    • Hi Kinga, I don’t know for sure because I have never used the Qtranslate plugin myself. I can say that we use a very standard and common framework for the themes so I don’t think there is anything weird or unusual which would prevent you from using Qtranslate. It *sounds* like a possible config or set up issue, so hopefully someone can help. Have you reached out to the plugin author to ask if they have any advice?

  35. Hi, is there a way to edit the theme to allow editting the price of items, while using the bulk edit? I need to update a lot of items, and its a hassle to do it one by one.

    • Hi @Whacko,

      Thanks for using our theme

      Yes there is a way but using PHPMyAdmin under cpanel it’s a bit tricky and dangerous way, you can update all price at once, if that sounds techie for you, you can contact us at help@wpdevshed.com

      Hope that helps

        • Glad it works fine now, there are only few people do customize social media icons, in fact 98% didn’t do anything or they only change from the start and what we’d like to share is the common and most use functionality.

          • Hello, I’d like to add a TripAdvisor social media icon along with the other pre-determined SM icons on a Restauraterur Theme. Can someone please tell me where and how to add the code? A screen shot would be so nice! TYIA!

          • Add the code inside header.php then on line 33, there is a div with the id=”social-media”, add the code inside that div. For the css, add the code inside style.css below line 744. You can follow how the code of other social media icons is being added.

  36. Hi, many thanks for your beautiful theme, is there a method to reorder the Menu categories and the menu items in menu page?

    Also, I’m quite new of WP, you wrote to set the theme as child, could you kindly explain me how can I do this?

    Many thanks,
    Andrea

    • Hi Andrea, no there is not way to re-order the menu categories at this time. We wrote a post about child themes a while back. You’ll also find good information on WordPress.org.

      • Hi Charles, many thanks for your prompt reply (and apologize for post twice).

        I noticed that now categories are in alphabetic order, I hope in future will be possible reorder them.

        Best,
        Andrea

        • Hi @Andrea,

          Thanks for using our theme

          That functionality is achievable, follow this steps
          1. In Menu plugin add 'supports' => 'page-attributes' // this enable page attribute so we can add order by field
          2. In Menu page template add 'orderby' => 'menu_order' // this simply tell query to order menu by the order menu field we've added

          If this sounds techie for you, you can contact us at help@wpdevshed.com

          Hope that helps

          • Hi @Ryan,

            many thanks for your support.

            It’s just a little be techie :) but I didn’t have any problem to add what you wrote, but I didn’t understand how to reorder Menu categories and menu items.

            BTW after this modifications (that I reverted) i missed the possibility to add featured images to the menu items.

            Many thanks,
            Andrea

          • Just follow what I’ve comment and the file where you can edit/add the order are menu-items-template-full.php and menu-items-template.php, hope that helps

  37. Hi, it looks like you may have covered this previously, but i thought i would ask: is there any way to display images other than the slider on the home page? Thank you!

    • Hi @Lia,

      Thanks for using our theme

      What you mean images? can you be more specific, like what are these images, are these from page attachment, media or in what format, grid, list or etc., thanks

  38. Hi, many thanks for your beautiful template, I would like to know how (if possible) sort both Menu Items and Menu Categories (in my Menu page).

    Also I would like to know if is possible to change the menu color when you select it.

    My apologize if I post this questions twice, I had an error and I’m not sure if the previous was OK.

    Many thanks, Andrea

  39. See my reply on your first comment, also you it’s possible to change menu color, here’s the steps

    1. View your site page source and in Menu item copy page ID or class, something like menu-item-198
    2. nav[role=navigation] .menu ul li.menu-item-198 a{ color: green; }

    Hope that helps

  40. Hi Charles,

    just wanted to thank you for this amazing template, I love it!
    I’m not using it for a restaurant and was wondering if we could disable the mobile version from only showing the menu? I would like it to show all tabs from menu.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ezechiel

    • Hi @ezechiel

      Thanks for using our theme

      This requires a lot of works updating CSS code and it is beyond we can offer here at comment support, email our premium support to help you lighten this issue at help@wpdevshed.com, thanks

    • Go to Settings > Reading and change the number of posts per page. The default is 10, but you can change this to any number you like.

      • Thanks, that didn’t work for me as I implemented the plugin and pages in another theme. I fixed it by altering the number in menu-items-template-full.php file

  41. Hi Charles,

    thanks for answering so many questions, great to have all those resources.
    I’m just trying to find out how to remove the “recent post”, “categories” and “archive” on the right hand side? Is there any way to remove it and replace it by adsense for instance?

    Cheers

    • Hi @Raph,

      Thanks for using our theme

      If you mean the default sidebar then you can remove it in Appearance -> Widgets and replace it with Adsense code, to use add Adsense code you can use Text Widget.

      Hope that helps

  42. Hi Charles,

    Thank you very much for the amazing theme. It is very nice and very helpfull.

    I use your theme with qtranslate plugin for 4 languages.

    Can you please give me some help in 2 issues:

    1) Is it possible to translate the title of the widgets used on the side bar?
    I tried to make some changes in Title of the widget using this code: title of the widget but doesn’t work

    2) Is it possible to translate the menu items elements?
    I Tried to use Menu item name in Edit Menu Item Categories Name and Slug but doesn’t work

    Can you help me with this?
    Thank you very much

    • Hi @Marian,

      Thanks for using our theme

      1. Did you try adding translated name in Widget title instead?
      2. Same method in step 1., that should work fine.

      Hope that helps

    • Hi Marian, thanks glad you like the theme. To be honest I’m not sure how qtranslate works as I’ve never used it. We use a pretty common framework for building our themes so I don’t think there is anything unusual or different about the way we do things that would prevent a translation plugin from working. The menu might be the challenging part though because it is a custom plugin. I don’t know how qtranslate handles such things. Have you asked the author?

    • Hi, the menu categories are listed alphabetically at this time. The ability to edit this is something we are considering for a future update. I can’t promise a date sorry.

  43. I like your theme but I’m having a few issues with the homepage slider. I would like to add text to the images and also have them link to the specific pages on the site i.e. picture of exterior of the restaurant within the slider link to the locations page. Are these two things possible or is the slider just simply for images only?

    • Hi Chris, the slider bundled with the theme is very simple and only displays images. To add text and links you’d need to swap out the slider with another. There’s a few to choose from the plugin directory.

  44. I like so much your themes. I have a qüestion. Can I put a link on the photo from the menú? I want to put a recipe for every photo from the menú.

    • Hi @Dorian,

      Thanks for using our theme

      “put a link on the photo from the menú”, what do you mean? like overlap the menu featured image? how about added it in menu item description instead? can you elaborate more?, thanks

    • Hi Melanie, not without some customization of the the theme templates. If you don’t want to use images then I’d say there isn’t much point in using this theme.

    • Hi Melanie, suggest you google for wordpress translation plugins. I know there are a few different options, though I havn’t used any myself.

  45. Hi,

    Loved the theme.

    I tried using short codes in the homepage, doesn’t show up. Works fine in other pages though.

    Thanks

    • Hi Anselm, yes the home page template purposefully strips out any html or shortcodes. This was a design choice.

  46. Great Theme :-) I am however seeing some erratic behavior w.r.t the Widgets. I don’t want any widget to show up on the Static Home Page and on the Location page. The static home page is using the template Alt_HomePage with Static Slider. Under Appearance—> Widgets I have everything deactivated (image at http://imgur.com/L1VwwNm ) . . Even then on the home page i see 4 Widgets (image at http://imgur.com/dU3NA5J ) . . . And likewise i have the location page set to use the template Full Width _ No Side Bar…I still see the comments form in the footer region. Image at http://imgur.com/kHYK9he . .. . Could you please help me. Is there a way to disable the widget that works. And is there a way to use another templae for static pages then the one already listed? Please guide.

    • Hi Guddu, the theme automatically adds those widgets to the alt_homepage template if you do not define your own widgets. To remove the widgets altogether you will need to edit the alt_homepage template or hide these with CSS. If you need professional help I suggest you try Elto.

  47. Hi Charles, Thanks for this theme it is brilliant.

    I trying to use it in a French site and I am having a little trouble translatting the Theme. for example I can’t find the “Previous” in this page: http://venez-rever.com/vr/carne-mechada/

    I have gone trought the .mo / .po files
    and translated all Previous / Next references i found and still no joy.

    Also in the menu on each item footer there is the fork img and the word “in” and then the cat name, that one i can’t find neither…

    I will appreciate your guidance (and off course i will send you later my po/mo files in french so you can bundle them, also i saw in the WP forum that someone translated it to japanese you might want to fecth that one too ?)

    • Hi @Nathan,

      Thanks for using our theme

      For Previous and Next text you can find it in functions.php file at line #525-551 and if it’s not yet in .po and .mo file you can regerated again using ‘restaurateur’ as THEME Domain.

      For the Menu it is in content-menu.php file start from line #20-35, you can also regenerate .mo and .po file using ‘restaurateur’ theme domain

      If your site is not in French yet you can use the generated .po and .mo file at http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress-i18n/fr_FR/rosetta/

      Hope that helps

  48. Hi,

    This maybe a newbie question. But the issue i am having is that the navigation you have for the menu is based on filtering of the categories. I want to setup a direct link to a category in the top level navigation. This is useful for “Daily Specials” which I want to give more prominence by placing on top navigation rather than a filter. also by placing a link sometimes in widgets for that category for advertising of that section. But I am not sure what the url to a pinterest type template page for a single category is. I didn’t like the menu-item-archive page for the display of category items.

    Thanks,
    Faisal

    • Hi @faisal,

      Thanks for using our theme

      I’m sorry but I don’t think that is possible to add direct link into Main Navigation because the current Menu setup is based on Click event with Isotope jQuery plugin.

      You can email our paid support to discuss more about this or ask for custom functionality at help@wpdevshed.com

      Hope that helps

  49. Hello,

    1) How can i change social buttons colors ?
    2) How can i remove top grey bar ?
    3) How can i change top grey bars texts colors ?

    Thank you so much, waiting your reply.
    Best.

    • Hi @kevin,

      Thanks for using our theme

      1. You can update it in Customize Memu either under Appearance Backend or Under Admin Menu Frontend, update “Theme Color Scheme” in there
      2. If you mean the Nav, it’s in Customize menu too
      3. You can update it in style.css file at line #1003 or in nav[role=navigation] .menu ul li a, nav[role=navigation] .menu #menu-icon selector, you can use notepad++ in Windows to locate line number and just update color parameter and you’re good to go.

      Hope that helps

  50. and one more question guys,

    How can i change menu category texts ?

    For example it says ”Beef And Cheddar” in Hamburgers

    I want to replace ”in” with ”da”

    How can i do that ?

    Thanks

  51. Hi

    How to add arrow to slider than little buttons to change photo and how to make slider bigger, i want it to fit much more width.

    Thanks

  52. Sorry for bulk questions but how to add 2 different menu ? I added 2 pages with menu template but both of 2 is showing same items.

    • Hi Kevin, it isn’t possible to display two different menus. That would require non-trivial changes to the templates and plugin code for the menu item custom post type.

  53. Hi! Thanks for this friendly and simple theme.

    How to change the font style?

    And how i can align to center all the pages?

    • Hello,

      Regarding in changing the font style, are you referring to css font-style property? If yes, the following are different examples of font styles

      p{font-style:normal}
      p{font-style:italic}
      p{font-style:oblique}

      And also can you clarify what you meant by “align to center all the pages”.

      Thanks.

  54. Hi folks,

    Thank you very much for the amazing theme.

    Is it possible to control the homepage slider speed? It’s much faster here than in the theme demo.

    Thanks

  55. Hello,

    When trying to add images from the media library, it seems to try to load the thumbs and keeps doing this forever.
    When trying to upload new images (when editing a page) I get an error which I have never seen before using other themes.

    I have a fresh install of WordPress 3.9.1 and have no other plugins installed.

    Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    • Hi Sander, I’m not sure exactly where you are trying to add images, but I guess you mean adding to the home page, yes? Assuming so please try adding the images you want in the home page slider to the page as a regular WordPress image gallery rather than adding them to the page individually. The template will display the gallery of images in the slider style. Does that help?

      • Unfortunately your answer didn’t helped me on this issue.
        The media library can’t be loaded when editing a page, either the homepage or a subpage. So it doesn’t matter if I try to add loose images or try adding a galery to the home page.
        When I go to the media library from the menu on the left, I see all the media present on the website.
        When editing a page, it continues to search for the files. Any other theme, including Virality of you does see the images immediately.
        I’ve tried it on different computers and web servers. Something is going wrong here. Hopefully you can help me, because I think it’s a nice, good looking theme that I want to use.

        • Hi Sander, I don’t know what would cause this. My guess (and it is only a guess) would be some kind of odd conflict between the theme and one or more plugins you are using. As a next step I would recommend disabling all plugins and if that resolves the issue then enable them one by one until you isolate the one which causes the problem. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.

          • Hi Charles,

            I don’t have any plugins installed yet. I’m using wordpress 3.9.1 and I even remove the standard plugins coming together with wordpress.
            Could it be some setting in wordpress?

          • Hi Sander, that is curious. I can’t replicate the problem here so we’re going to have to keep looking. Who are you hosted with?

    • Sure is. Look for #menu-filters controllers on line 2882 of the style sheet. You can see the font color there. Remember if you are customizing your theme you should set it up as a child theme first.

  56. I tried to add a responsive menu. However, it has all these round bullets in the final output.
    I checked the style sheet of responsive menu. It is style: none ! important.
    I am not sure what css in the theme may have caused the impact. I do think you also include style: none !important. Thank you.

  57. Hi,
    Thank you so much for your BEAUTIFUL theme! How do I remove the LATEST POST, CATAGORIES, ARCHIVES and Comments from the home/front page?
    Thanks so much,
    missy

    • Hi Missy, the template displays those widgets by default. You can replace them with any you prefer under Appearances > Widgets. If you want to remove all widgets altogether a hack might be to add a single empty text widget, otherwise you’ll need to edit the template to remove the widgets from the home page template.

  58. I can’t upload any media either! The theme is not updating, I have to switch between this theme and twenty fourteen to add any images and the theme blocked me from logging in or out of my account. I’m hosted with blue host…I’ve been dealing with these issues but like the guy mentioned before I CAN’T UPLOAD ANY MEDIA TO ANY OF THE PAGES! I go to insert media and nothing shows or it shows I click insert and it never shows up…For now all i need is the images in the slider to work! PLEASE HELP!

    • Hi Melissa, this kind of issue is most likely a clash between the theme an a plugin. To test this you should deactivate all plugins. If that solves the problem then it confirms it is a plugin/theme conflict. You can isolate the plugin which is conflicting with the theme by activating them again one by one until you find the one which conflicts. If it is a conflict then you need to decide whether you want to keep using this theme or the plugin :)

  59. At first congrats for this great theme,

    Only i have one problem,
    I’m using wpml for multilanguage and translating english.
    When i have created english homepage, the slider not display, only show:

    IMAGES ADDED TO THIS PAGE WILL APPEAR HERE

    Curiosly, when i return to spanish language, display ok.

    Please, could you give me any idea.
    Thanks a lot.
    Best Regards

    • Hi Manu, if I understand WPML correctly it effectively adds a new page or post for each translation, so I think you need to make sure you have added your image gallery to the new Enlgish panguage page (as you did in the orginal) so that these images show up in the slider. Make sense?

      • Hi Charles, you are right, and i’m sure that adding the images in english page, doesn’t work, also i’m trying with different slider plugin like metaslider, a3 responsive slider, and not work.
        ¿Any idea?

        Thanks for your attention.
        Manu.

        • Hi Manu, I’m sorry I don’t know how to address this. Have you tried asking WPML for advice? If you need help customizing the theme (which you will need to do if you want to use another plugin), I recommend trying Elto or Codeable.

  60. Hi,

    Do you have a premium version of this theme? I would like to be able to create subpages that have a different header and footer than the main pages. I think I need to be able to create a secondary menu for this, but Restaurateur doesn’t allow it.
    Also, I would like to link the home page slider images to other pages in the website so people could click on them.
    What do you recommend?

  61. Love your theme but there are two things I’d like to be able to do.

    1 — is it possible to put the business address and phone at the top of the page without editing the header? Not a big deal if it’s not.

    2 — can the images in the slider send people who click them to a URL?

    Thank you.

    • 1 – You need to edit the header.php for you to put the business address and phone at the top.
      2 – This is not possible because the images is being created through wordpress gallery and there is no option adding a link to an image.

  62. Hi, I’ve set up our home page with the slider and it works well. However, if I try to change the displayed pictures, the change isn’t reflected in the slider. I’ve deleted all the images and code and re-added new images and still no change. Please advise.

    Thanks

    • Hi Larry, yes is a known problem related to the way that WordPress associates images with posts and then the way the template displays the images associated with the home page. There is a fix though…assuming you are running the latest version of the theme you can simply remove all images from the home page and instead embed a regular WordPress gallery into the page content which contains the specific images you want in the slider. The template will use these images instead of any you have previously added to the page.

      The other option is to go to the media manager and delete permanently all the images you had previously added to the page and don’t want displayed anymore, but this is unnecessary if you use the gallery approach as described above. Hope that helps.

  63. Hi. I’d like to add a tripadvisor social media icon to the top of the page alongside the others. I see that someone else asked for this earlier this month but I’m not comfortable editing php files. Could you either provide more detailed instructions or update the theme to include it?

    Thanks,
    Larry

    • Hi Larry, good suggestion. We’ll add that as an option. Look out for an update (will take a couple of weeks before it is available).

    • Hi. I tried to add a response requesting that you also add Foursquare to your social media list, but the response never showed up in the forum. I suggest a different type of forum for providing support — this appears to be a bit unreliable.

      • Larry, all comments here are manually moderated due to lots of spam. I got your feedback and we have a new version coming which includes Foursquare as an option. Not sure what happened to your comment. I may have accidentally deleted it rather than approved.

  64. hi, thanks for this wonderful template. just a quick inquiry. how am i going to delete the button(circle) under the slide show images. i am planning to put one image. thanks again!

  65. Question: Is it possible to have the entire menu item linkable to the menu-item-archive link?

    I did the perma link at line 11, but it just added a link in the description.

    I would like the entire menu box to be clickable to the item.

    Thanks

    • Hi, can you provide a link to your site? Are you using any other plugins? What version of WordPress are you running?

      Lots of people have updated and this is the first such report (and the change was very very minor), so I have a feeling the problem would most likely be related to some kind of plugin clash or perhaps a failure of the update process itself.

    • Hi, followup…we’ve found the problem. Seems that the theme files uploaded to WordPress.org for the new version were missing some critical parts. Honestly, I don’t know how this happened as any theme update goes through an automated and a manual review before being made live.

      We’ll have a new new version available asap, but in the meantime the only fix is to access your site via FTP and replace the theme files with the old version (2.0.7) which you can download here:

      https://wordpress.org/themes/restaurateur/developers/

      Very sorry for the inconvenience.

  66. Hi Charles,

    I have took down the site. I’m running WP 4.0 with some up-to-date social media plugins, contact form 7, jetpack, Google Analytics and Wordfence security. I have no problem change to other themes, but this one. I even disabled all the plugin but still give me the WOD.

    I will check the system log again and will update you again.

  67. HELP! I updated the theme with the latest version and now the entire site is unavailable. I can’t even log into WordPress. This is the error I’m getting — please advise asap!

    Warning: require_once(/nfs/c04/h06/mnt/67507/domains/sugarbowlofdarien.com/html/wp-content/themes/restaurateur/library/class/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /nfs/c04/h06/mnt/67507/domains/sugarbowlofdarien.com/html/wp-content/themes/restaurateur/functions.php on line 860

        • Hi Larry, I’m afraid FTP is the only way to restore the theme. I see your site is back up so I gather you were able to do this. I’m truly sorry for the stress of this. It is a real mess right now. We have submitted a fixed version and are chasing the theme review team. Hope to have it available soon.

  68. i also have a fatal error after recent update.
    how do i switch back to old version while not able to access my localhost admin panel??
    thanks

  69. Hi! Thank you for a wonderful theme.

    I have a simple question. Where do I find the “Select Menu Item” (when using mobile) css? I’d like to change the language to Danish.

    Thank you

  70. ok, thanks for your help.
    i replaced the theme file with a different version, but now all of my customization is gone and i have your default theme instead of my previous work :-/

    • Oh :(

      If you still have a copy of your customizations you can put those back, just make sure the /language/ and /library/ directories are still there. I also strongly recommend that any customizations should be done in a child theme so that future theme updates (and there will be some) don’t overwrite your changes.

  71. How can I get the excerpt to align properly? A lot of the items have different variations with different prices.
    http://bit.ly/1wbFazC

    For example on item #1, in the excerpt “Grilled Steak” I want on the line under it so that each item line ends with the price.

    • Place each item on a P tag. For example,
      <p>10 INCH TORTILLA FILLED WITH SEASONED BEEF COVERED WITH BURRITO SAUCE, LETTUCE, TOMATO, GUACAMOLE, SOUR CREAM.....................................................$10.99</p>
      <p>GRILLED STEAK OR CHICKEN.......................................................$12.99 </p>

  72. Hey Guys,

    I love the theme and I am working on getting it up and running, but by download did not come bundled with the menu plug-in. I need it for my site to work. Can you please make it available for download?
