Utility Section

Utility - Text
Utility - RokSprocket

Here is the widget breakdown for the Utility section:

  • Text
  • RokSprocket


The text widget in this section has no title, and only contains one small amount of code in the text field.

<div class="rt-center">
    <p class="promo2 nomarginbottom">Top News of the Week.</p>
    <p class="promo3 nomarginbottom">Lumiere uses HTML5 video to create a dynamic and interactive user experience.</p>  
  • Set the Margin Variation option to No Margin Bottom.
  • Set the Padding Variation option to No Padding Bottom.
  • Leaving everything else at its default setting, select Save.


This area of the front page is a RokSprocket widget using the Mosaic layout type. 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 Mosaic widget.

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

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

Theme Default
Display Limit
Columns 3
Preview Length 16

You can set the RokSprocket filters to include any category, specific posts, 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 Mosaic widget in the Choose Widget field.
  • Set the Corner Variation option to Basic.
  • 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.
