Acacia: Recreating the Demo - Showcase

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Acacia Theme for WordPress


Showcase Section

Here is the widget breakdown for the Showcase section:

  • RokSprocket

RokSprocket

The main feature showcase located near the top 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 Features widget.

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

Simple Content Provider

In this instance, we used the Simple content provider in order to allow us to create custom items, without having to create posts to connect them to. The Title and Description fields of these items are custom, while the Image and Link fields are left blank. You will find the settings of one of these items below.

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 Features widget in the Choose Widget field.
  • Enter fp-roksprocket-showcase 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.
