Praxis: Recreating the Demo - Showcase

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Praxis Theme for WordPress

Showcase Section

Here is the widget breakdown for the Showcase section:

  • 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. 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 Strips Layout Options for this widget.

Option Setting
Display Limit
Theme Default
Preview Length 20
Strip HTML Tags No
Previews Per Page 8
Items Per Row 4
Arrow Navigation Show
Pagination Hide
Animation Fade Delayed
Autoplay Disable
Autoplay Delay 5
Image Resize Disable
Default Title None
Default Link None

You can set the RokSprocket filters to include any category, specific posts, 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.

<span class="sprocket-strips-image">    <span class="strips-image-shadow"></span>   <img src="http://demo.rockettheme.com/wordpress-themes/wp_praxis/wp-content/rockettheme/rt_praxis_wp/frontpage/roksprocket-strips/img8.jpg" alt="image" /></span>

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 Strips widget in the Choose Widget field.
  • Enter fp-roksprocket-strips 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.
