Two months ago I took Shay Bocks’s “Garnish” course, an online program for bloggers who want to create their own branding and web graphics. I was absolutely thrilled to receive the Foodie Pro theme as part of the package.
Foodie Pro is a fantastic theme. It’s clean, minimalist, elegant and easy to customize. Changes that would typically be made by altering the CSS code are embedded in the theme.
Foodie Pro uses a widgetized home page template, allowing you to display your creations in a variety of ways. Because the home page is so flexible, there is no pagination.
These are the edits I made to get around this. I added a text link at the bottom of my home page that goes to my archives.
1) Create a category : Dashboard-Posts-Categories
2) Enter the name and slug of the category in the form then, at the bottom of the category panel box, click +Add New Category.
I called my category “recipes“.
2) Make this new category the parent of all the other categories you already have.
Click each category. Under parent, click “recipes”. At the bottom of the page click Update
2) How many posts do you have in your home page? I have 13.
Go to dashboard-settings-reading-blog pages show at most. Write one number less than the posts you have in the home page. In my case 12.
3) Go to widgets-home bottom. Drag a text widget and write this code:
(Replace “yoursite” with your blog name and , if you want, “See More” with “Read more recipes” or whatever you like” ). Click save.
