Ximenia: Recreating the Demo - Sidebar

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Ximenia Theme for WordPress


Sidebar Section

The Sidebar section in our demo points out some of the more compelling features that went into our theme. It includes two text widgets and a single RokSprocket Tabs widget.

Here is the widget breakdown for the Sidebar section:

  • Text
  • RokSprocket
  • Text

Text

The first text widget in this section is titled More Features and has the following in the main text field.

<ul class="menu">
<li class="item-180"><span class="separator">Multiple Styles</span>
</li><li class="item-181"><span class="separator">Versatile Layout</span>
</li><li class="item-182"><span class="separator">Widget Variants</span>
</li><li class="item-183"><span class="separator">Powerful Menu</span>
</li><li class="item-184"><span class="separator">Beautiful Content</span>
</li><li class="item-186"><span class="separator">RokSprocket Styled</span>
</li><li class="item-187"><span class="separator">Logo Picker</span>
</li><li class="item-188"><span class="separator">WordPress Styled</span>
</li></ul>
  • Set the Title to More Features.
  • Set the Title Variation option to Title 2.
  • Leaving everything else at its default setting, select Save.

RokSprocket

The Gantry Extras widget located in the sidebar section of the page is a RokSprocket Tabs 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 Tabs 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 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
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.

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.

  • Set the Title to Ximenia Guide
  • Set the Title Variation option to Title 2.
  • Set the Custom Variations to titletabs.
  • 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.

Text

The second text widget in this section is titled Advertisement and has the following in the main text field.

<a href="http://www.rockettheme.com/" target="_blank">
  <span class="rt-image rt-floatleft smallmargintop">
    <img width="190" height="150" alt="RocketTheme" src="http://demo.rockettheme.com/wordpress-themes/wp_ximenia/wp-content/rockettheme/rt_ximenia_wp/frontpage/general/rockettheme.jpg" />
  </span>
</a>
  • Set the Title to Advertisement.
  • Set the Title Variation option to Title 1.
  • Leaving everything else at its default setting, select Save.
