Review : Daily Dish Pro is has been rated as a best genesis food blogging theme by StudioPress which let’s you featured recipe, dishes and other categories on the homepage. The Daily Dish Pro WordPress child theme offers featured category boxes, a new way of showing latest posts like a magazine website. If you think about standard food blogs then they only shows latest posts in list view. But here you are getting options to add featured sections of your choice on homepage, hence you can select add “Desserts section, Dishes section, Recipe section”. When new posts are published under those category it will automatically appear on the homepage. The black and white default color skin with delicate theme structure makes is best choice for all food and recipe bloggers.
Detailed Review Of Daily Dish Pro (A Child Theme For Genesis Framework)
Many Widget Areas : Homepage of Daily Dish Pro WordPress Theme has been crafted with widgetized sections, this way authors can configure these widgets to feature their popular categories, posts, social icons, author info box, banners and various elements. The “Primary Sidebar” is the main sidebar that you normally use to display social widget, newsletter sign-up widget, recent posts. If you open demo page then you can figure out that primary sidebar can also display selected post using featured post widget. If you use page layout with sidebar on the both side, the “Left sidebar” will become your secondary sidebar where you will add widgets from the customization area. The “Before Header” is another widget friendly section which appears before header and here you can display ads banner or custom greeting message to your visitors.
Homepage Regions : The “Homepage Top” section (look below image for more idea) of Daily Dish Pro Genesis theme is the first part that you will see after header, the demo page shows a single post with large featured image and long excerpt, however it is not compulsory to use the same design. You can add several (small size) custom posts or add a post slider too. The middle area of homepage has featured post widget having capability to display 2 post entries. The size of featured image is smaller (normal) with reasonable excerpt length. You can manage these widget sections with custom options and try to change look upto your choice. In the middle part you will see another featured post section wish shows three recent posts with small excerpt and image, this section let’s you create separate featured category box for homepage.
Footer Widget Areas : As we discussed header and middle homepage areas, we will now talk about footer region. Daily Dish Pro food blog child theme for StudioPress provides you widget powered footer so that you can change the look of footer panel like other areas. The “Before Footer Widgets” is a grid based featured section which shows posts with images only, this region is visible with footer section on the entire website. So it might get attention when reader reaches at bottom while reading articles. It is visible just before the footer section and you can replace them with flickr widget, instagram widget or you can show recent image gallery too. The bottom footer section has 3 widget entry columns so that blogger can display menu links, social buttons, recent posts etc.
After Post Entry : This is a special widget box that is shown at the end of every post, above author info box. In most of the case blogger would prefer to use it to add “Newsletter sign up box, Ad banner or related posts”. The good thing about Daily Dish Pro Genesis child theme is the freedom to use maximum features provided by framework, that means you are not imposed to any limitation to use only features that are included in child theme. But you can cross all the limits and make a fully featured supported widgetized theme of your need.
Final Words : As I said that Daily Dish Pro is the most favorite food blog WordPress theme from StudioPress which works with Genesis Framework. The theme brings various gifted features like clean, minimal design with best typography which runs with great responsiveness. This way user coming from Desktop computers, Tablet, iPhone will be able to enjoy your blog articles and their whole attention will be maintained only text and images, instead of any other unwanted areas. Hence, this is the best food blogging child theme that I can recommend to all food and recipe article writers.
