RokSprocket

This area of the demo is a RokSprocket widget. You will need to do two things to prepare this widget so that it looks similar to the one in the demo.

First, you will need to create the RokSprocket Widget. You can do this by navigating to Administration -> RokSprocket Admin and creating a new Strips widget.

You can find out more about RokSprocket and how to set up and modify widgets by visiting our RokSprocket documentation.

Simple Content Provider

In this instance, we used the Simple content provider in order to allow us to create custom items, without having to create posts to connect them to. The Description field of these items is custom. Everything else is set to its default None setting.

Description

RokAjaxSearch is a configurable search widget that uses AJAX to load results in real time via a styled popup. It can be set to local or Google search, inclusive of Web, image, video and blog. Results are paged and can be accessed via buttons or keyboard commands.

Here is a look at the Strips Layout Options for this widget.

You can set the RokSprocket filters to include any category, specific articles, or otherwise you would like to have featured in this widget.

Once you have created this widget, you can add it via the Widgets menu by clicking RokSprocket and dragging it to the appropriate section. When you have done this, you will need to complete the following.

  • Select your RokSprocket Featured widget in the Choose Widget field.
  • Set the Align Variation option to RT-Center.
  • Enter fp-roksprocket-strips rt-big-title in the Custom Variations field.
  • Leaving everything else at its default setting, select Save.

The widget should now be created and ready for use on the front page of your WordPress site.
