Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Roundup of plugins for this course, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Restaurant Website.
- Let's take a look at some of the plugins I've selected…to help us achieve the goals for our restaurant site.…First, we've got the Food and Drink Menu plugin.…The menu is really the heart and soul of this…restaurant website, and this is a great plugin…that can help us display our menu.…Next, we've got the Genesis Responsive Slider plugin.…Now, you may be saying, "Carrie, earlier you were…"hating on sliders, why are we using this plugin?"…Well, I'll tell you.…We can actually use this plugin to get a nice image…with the text overlay, we just don't have to make it slide.…
Next we have the Easy Testimonials plugin.…This is going to allow us to show off…those customer reviews.…Here, we've got Jetpack.…This has a couple of modules we're going to use.…First, it's got a contact form,…which will come in handy for reservations,…or general customer contact,…and secondly, it's got a CSS editor,…so that we can make some basic CSS changes…without touching our theme.…Speaking of not touching our theme files,…here comes the Genesis Simple Edits plugin.…
