Here is the widget breakdown for the Main Bottom section:

  • RokSprocket (Tabs)
  • Gantry Divider
  • RokSprocket (Lists)

RokSprocket (Tabs)

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 Tabs widget.

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

Simple Content Provider

We used the Simple Content Provider to allow us to make custom tabs without having to build posts on the back-end. In this case, the Tab Label and Description are custom, while the other options are left at default or None settings. You will find the settings used in one of these items below.

    <p><span class="rt-label-1">RocketLauncher</span></p>

    <p><span class="rt-label-2">Multiple Platforms</span></p>

    <p>The RocketLauncher is a customized WordPress install, that replaces the
    default sample data with the data from the demo, alongside images, the
    plugins and theme. It is a quick way to replicate the demo onto your
    server.</p>

Gantry Divider

This widget tells WordPress to start a new widget column beginning with the widget placed directly below the divider in the section.

RokSprocket (Lists)

The widget located in this section of the page is a RokSprocket Lists widget created in a very similar way to the previous RokSprocket widgets featured on the front page of 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 Lists widget.
