Praxis: Recreating the Demo - Main Top

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Praxis Theme for WordPress


Main Top Section

Here is the widget breakdown for the Main Top section:

  • RokSprocket

RokSprocket

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. In this particular instance, we elected to use the Simple content provider as it allows us to create custom items that do not require associated posts and/or pages.

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

Option Setting
Theme Default
Tabs Position Top
Display Limit
Animation Slide and Fade
Autoplay Disable
Autoplay Delay 5
Image Resize Disable
Preview Length 0
Strip HTML Tags No

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

Simple Item Setup

In this instance, we did not do a whole lot to customize the simple items. We did, however, add a custom description for each item. This description sets the images found in the strips. Below, you will find the text used in one of these items.

<div class="gantry-width-40 gantry-width-block">
    <div class="gantry-width-spacer nomarginleft">
        <div class="sprocket-tabs-image"><img alt="image" src=
        "http://demo.rockettheme.com/wordpress-themes/wp_praxis/wp-content/rockettheme/rt_praxis_wp/frontpage/roksprocket-tabs/img1.jpg"></div>
    </div>
</div>
<div class="gantry-width-60 gantry-width-block">
    <div class="gantry-width-spacer">
        <p class="promo2 smallmarginbottom">Praxis</p>
        <p>Praxis is an elegant nexus of content enriching visual elements and
        powerful, underlying interactive and configurable features, to maximize
        the versatility and engagement of your site.</p>
        <div class="visible-large">
            <p>The Gantry Framework is the foundation of the template,
            providing the base for all major features and functions, such as
            the intuitive administrative interface.</p>
        </div><a class="readon largemargintop" href=
        "http://demo.rockettheme.com/wordpress-themes/wp_praxis/features/">Read
        More</a>
    </div>
</div>
<div class="clear"></div>

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 Tabs widget in the Choose Widget field.
  • Enter fp-roksprocket-tabs fp-sidenav-spacing 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.
