*. The StudioPress Foodie Pro theme looks great. The design is already set up so you won’t have to modify it. If you do not like the default fonts or colors, or want your site to look exactly the way the demo does, you can use the WordPress live customizer to change them or use the WP importer to import the theme demo (theme_demo.xml in the sample data folder within the zip file). You can upload a background picture to the theme.

Header

The template’s header allows users to add a newsletter widget instead of a top bar. Most food bloggers aim to increase their subscriber list. CTR is high for ad units in the navbar. Your opt-in form will be the first thing website visitors see so many people will sign up to your daily newsletters. To add this widget to your blog, users will need to install the Genesis eNews Extended plugin. This plugin is compatible with StudioPress themes.

*Another interesting feature is the navbar. It not only includes a search tool but also contains icons for your social media profiles. Foodie Pro supports drop-down menus.

Footer

The StudioPress Foodie Pro theme lets users display social networking icons in the footer region. This area can be used to display featured images, the website’s description, or author’s biography. You will find a widget area in the template’s footer. You can use the widget area below the theme’s footer to display a 728 x 90 banner/leaderboard.

(*Food bloggers often share stories about their experiences with a dish via video-sharing websites, and photos of the dish or meal they have eaten on Instagram. While Instagram allows you embed a gallery manually it can be difficult to edit source code files. The site may not work if you leave any HTML tags or PHP tags open. Foodie Pro allows you to display images from your favorite Instagram albums in a row, without you having to modify files. The widget area is located at the footer’s top. This section must be added with an Instagram widget. It should display images from your Instagram account.
