The Foodie Pro theme is available on the StudioPress website but is a third-party theme created by a company called Feast Design Co. (formerly known as Shay Bocks Design).
Foodie Pro Theme Homepage
The homepage of Foodie Pro uses 3 widget areas to display your content. The best way to make use of these areas is by adding the built-in featured content widgets. This allows you lots of flexibility to display your content in creative ways.
On the demo website the “Home Top” area uses the Genesis Featured Slider to showcase your latest blog entries, but this is optional. The “Home Middle” and Home Bottom” areas are typically populated with the built-in featured posts widget.
The featured posts widget allows you to showcase you blog posts in full-width or several combinations of columns. You can also choose whether to show full content, excerpts, limited content or just images, so you have quite a bit of flexibility to make your homepage look unique.
Foodie Pro Theme Options
Foodie Pro is an attractive theme with clean lines and plenty of options for customisation, including the ability to choose from one of twelve Google fonts to use on your website.
- Source Sans Pro
- Abril Fatface
- Droid Serif
- Libre Baskerville
- PT Sans Narrow
- PT Serif
- Playfair Display
- Roboto Slab
You can set any of these typefaces to work for your body, accent fonts, and headings.
There is also an option to modify colours, and the usual options for uploading your header logo etc.
There is a special setting for your blog archives which allows you to change how your archive will display. Options here include number of columns to use, and for each post, whether to show title, content, excerpt, and featured-image. You can choose which size image you want to show, and whether to show it before or after the title.
Foodie Pro Theme Layouts
The theme includes all 6 of the standard Genesis page layouts, so you have plenty of options for including content on the left/right of your sidebar areas and whether you want one or 2 sidebars. Options are as follows:
- Full-width Content
- Content | Sidebar
- Content | sidebar | sidebar
- Sidebar | Content
- Sidebar | Sidebar | Content
- Sidebar | Content | Sidebar
Foodie Pro Sitewide Widget Areas
The theme also comes with 4 footer widget areas. You may choose to include anything you like in these areas but typically they would be used for your business address, social profile links, newsletter etc.
Foodie Pro also has a widget area before the header (at the very top of the website). You may want to use this area for a newsletter sign-up area or maybe a large advert – the choice is yours!
