    Hello!

    I would like to ask a few hints. I have been building up the web site https://restaurantlaleona.wordpress.com/menu/ with the theme Nowell made by you.

    I have the map, but with the address I take it from google maps, it still show it wrong way. The restaurant is located in the other side of the square. How I can change it? Can I change the cordinates some how to get it right?

    From this page I can see also that that the map and the opening hours are in the different order. Can I change them some how in my site? https://nowelldemo.wordpress.com

    Then the text box (widget), can I do the hyperlink to the text?

    How I can have a carousel for the main images?

    I would be happy if you could send me instructions how to made the changes below. I will by this theme for other three language versions as well.

    Best regards

    Hi there!

    For the Google map, are you using the Contact Info widget or embedding the map? I’d recommend using the full address URL without any extra spaces. Make sure to test the address on Google Maps first to see that it’s showing correctly. The theme doesn’t have any control over how Google maps are embedded, unfortunately.

    The “Hours & Info” text shown on the home page is just a Text Widget. The icons for the phone number and address were added using special classes. I’ve provided the HTML used in that widget below.

    <span class="genericon genericon-phone"></span> (406) 555-7088<br>
    <span class="genericon genericon-location"></span> 100 Main St., New York, NY

    The front page image Carousel is controlled using Featured Content. The theme documentation covers this a bit in detail:

    https://wordpress.com/themes/nowell/support/#homepage-hero-slider

    Let me know if you have any questions after having a chance to look over the documentation.

    Thank you so much! I was able to change the widget with html to be nicer and also I brought the embedded map and it´s correct!

    Two questions. Can I effect how wide are the widgets: whole page area, three columns or one column?

    What is the html if I would like to add hyperlink to the text widget? I would like to have the email address to be a link.

    Thank you so much for you help!

    Great, glad to hear you got things figured out!

    You can adjust the widget width with CSS, however, that gets a bit difficult with columned content. If you’d like to play with it, you’ll want to target the .widget-area–home-widgets .block-grid-item selectors.

    The HTML to add a link would something like this:

    <a href="https://audiotheme.com">Link Text</a>

    If you have more questions in the future, you’ll want to create a new support ticket so we can stay on topic and help other find answer to similar questions.

    Hi!

    Hmmm…the html code is not working for me. I try to add the email address as a link. How it should be then? The link is (email visible only to moderators and staff)

    Unfortunately I´m not that good with CSS so I don´t know where add the code you sent. Are you able to help a bit more?

    Thank you so much!
