Recommended update released: v2.53

We just released a recommended update, which fixes a bug introduced by the update to WP3.7. The bug caused all menucard pages to return a 404 page, so if you updated your WordPress core to 3.7, you must update MyRestaurantTheme as well. Props to Tom, the teacher at this beginner guitar lessons site, for taking some time off teaching guitar and letting us know about the issue before the actual rollout of the updated WP. Beside this very important fix, we’ve also taken care of a few smaller bugs, and added a new feature: New...

MyRestaurantTheme Installation Service

Update released: MyRestaurantTheme v2.3

We have just released the latest update to MyRestaurantTheme, bringing the latest version number to 2.3. You might notice that we jumped over v2.2 in the public set of releases, this is because as we were about to release v2.2, WordPress upgraded to v3.5, which caused a lot of problems. Since v2.2 was a ready release, we thought it best to jump to v2.3. V2.3 is a major release due to the changes required by WordPress 3.5, so we would recommend updating all theme files. Beside the bug and compatibility fixes, we’ve also added several new...

Common online ordering notification methods

Several of our customers have asked us to give some advice on what we would recommend to be the most effective means of notification of orders placed online through their restaurant websites, or even of table reservations. As you know, the online ordering system of a MyRestaurantTheme powered website will send an automatic email to the restaurant when an order is placed, or a table is reserved. It can be daunting, and not very efficient for a restaurant to keep on checking their email for these notifications, there are several things you can...
