Here is the widget breakdown for the Main Bottom section:

  • RokSprocket
  • Gantry Divider
  • Gantry NewsFlash

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

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 Description is custom, while the other options are left at default or None settings. You will find the settings used in one of these items below.

Description

<span class="rt-testimonial-item">Paradigm is a rich infusion of elegant,
transparent visuals with a contemporary design frame, to create a subtle but
invigorating site experience. <span class="hidden-tablet">The dynamically
changing, transparent to opaque, fixed header, combines design and
functionality.</span> </span><span class="rt-testimonial-img"><img alt="image"

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.
  • Enter What Our Customers Said in the Tilte field.
  • Set the Title Variation option to Title 2.
  • Set the Align Variation option to _RT-Center.
  • Enter fp-roksprocket-strips icon-comments rt-stacked 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.

Gantry Divider

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

Dynamic Control of Page Layouts

Content

<p>The Gantry Grid System splits each widget row, such as showcase, into a maximum of 6 widgets, and their widths can be individually determined.</p>

<p class="hidden-tablet">In addition, you can also force a number of widget positions for a particular row, which will infuse blank grid positions in, to suit your desired layout. Furthermore, the layouts can be configured on a per-override basis.</p>
