Food Tags

The theme has a predefined set of tags that automatically generate a food icon depending on the tag you have chosen. If you use a tag different from the supported ones, the theme will generate a default food icon. The current theme version supports a single tag per post. If you add more than one tag, the theme will automatically add the default food icon. Tags are not case sensitive. The supported tags are listed below.

Posts Images

  1. To make your blog look visually and easthetically appealing, it is recommended to have at least 7 posts per page. This setting is controlled trough Settings » General » Posts per page.

  2. In order for the thumbnails to show on the index of your blog properly, it is highly recommended to start each post with an image. Your first image from the post will be used as the thumbnail. The recommended image orientation for the thumbnails is a landscape format.

  3. Due to a performance issue with Google Chrome, it is recommended to use images that are not more than 1000px wide.

  4. Posts support video, however the current theme version does not support video as thumbnails.

Ingredients in Posts

  1. Ingredients list

The first unordered list from your post is automatically styled as an ingredients list and is always placed in the end of the post. The Ingredients lists do not support nested lists and if you have nested lists, they will be automatically hidden.

  1. Ingredients Check/Uncheck

The ingredients style allows the end user to check/uncheck the ingredients upon click. This feature, combined with the fully responsive theme design, is very useful and handy for your visitors shopping. They can easily mark the ingredients they have already bought.

Add Disqus Comments To Your Blog

  1. Create a Disqus account. You also have to choose a site short name, which Disqus uses to allocate your website.

  2. Open delicious/post.hbs, and find this line:
    var disqus_shortname = 'example'; // required: replace example with your forum shortname

  3. Please make sure to change 'example' to your own Disqus site short name.
