DeMomentSomTres Restaurants is specifically designed to Restaurants, Bars and cafeterias in order to show their menus in an easy to mantain way.
It manages publish date and also expiry date allowing you to plan activity.
On may 2013 DeMomentSomTres was asked to build a web for a small restaurant in Argentona (Barcelona) called La Fonda del Casal.
Our experience building websites for small restaurants showed us the need to have a plugin to make them easy to manage their menus and meals lists. They needed an easy way to publish that but we needed it not inside the blog. A custom type was required.
They also needed a way to show the day menu in the frontpage without rewriting it. The shortcode was born. And this shortcode allowed us to put all the menus of diferent types together in a single page but that can be managed as many: wines, salads, meals… Test it at Fonda del Casal Restaurant.
It can be installed as any other WordPress plugin. It doesn’t have any special requirements.
You can use the shortcode
[demomentsomtres-restaurant-dish-list type=id count=N hidden_titles title_format="h3"] to show the N current dish lists of type id inside the post or page.
The plugin Recent Posts Widget Extended] is enough for our needs and is highly customizable. As we don’t like to reinvent the wheel, we did not code any widget.
There’are the following additional shortcodes embeded in the editor with the following features:
[ECO]: inserts an <i class=”icon-eco”>Ecological</i> element that shows an image representing Ecological products.
[PROX]: inserts an <i class=”icon-prox”>Proximity</i> element that shows an image representing Local products.
[P XXX]: inserts an <div class=”price”>XXX</div> element that helps to mark it as the price and format it.
You can call the restaurant archive to show the contents on an archive basis.
To customize expiry message you can use css class
