When it comes to building the WP Dispensary menu plugin, we take great pride in constantly improving and pushing the limits of what we’ve already accomplished in these last six months.
Today is no different.
Exactly one week since the release of WP Dispensary version 1.5, another round of updates are being published. Further extending it’s capabilities and continuing the faster release cycle trend.
Now WP Dispensary will work with ANY theme!
With Version 1.6 of WP Dispensary, we’ve included automatic output of the information you add to each individual menu item.
This information is hooked into
the_content() and will display all of the item’s pricing and additional details, with no extra lifting required on your part.
View examples of output for each menu type
We’ve also styled the extra details for you right out of the box, so that any theme you currently use will be compatible with WP Dispensary.
If you want to style the table differently, it has it’s own class of
wpdispensary-table and also
wpdispensary-table.pricing so you can easily customize it’s style to better suit your branding.
WP Dispensary Menu Settings
In this update, we’ve also included a new WP Dispensary Settings page. You can find this in your dashboard by going to
Settings > WP Dispensary
Currently there is only one available option, which lets you hide the menu item data from being displayed when viewing individual items.
This can be useful for WordPress theme developers who may want to include the taxonomy and metadata directly in the theme.
