The Brunch Pro theme is a third-party theme created by a company called Feast Design Co. (formerly known as Shay Bocks Design) and is available on the StudioPress website.
Brunch Pro Theme Homepage
The Brunch Pro homepage is made up of 3 widget areas (similar to it’s older sister, Foodie Pro). The theme comes with a built-in featured-posts widget, which is used for showing content on the homepage.
The featured-posts widget is extremely flexible and allows you to showcase your posts in a number of columns. You also have the option in each widget to show/hide various elements including title, content, image, meta data etc etc.
Brunch Pro Recipe Index Page
Brunch Pro has a a special page template for displaying your recipe index. You simply create a page and select the “Recipe Index” template, then build the page using widgets. Full instructions are included when you purchase the theme directly. If we are building your website, we will of course set this up for you.
