The Richard theme comes bundled with the Richard Practice Areas plugin. We broke this functionality out to a plugin separate from the theme files so that you will not lose any practice areas you add to your site should you ever decide to use a different theme in the future.
The first time you activate Richard you should be prompted to install the Practice Areas plugin. Please do so.
With the plugin active you will see a Practice Areas menu item added to the left side WordPress Admin menu. You can add practice areas the same way you add pages or posts. Enter the name of the practice area in the top field where it says “Enter Title Here”. The main text describing the practice area goes in the content edit area.
Below that you can add some optional additional information for the practice area including:
- Featured Icon – Displays at the top left corner beside the main content area of the practice area
- Featured Video – Displays below the main content area of the practice area with video on the right, and title with description on the left beside the video
- Featured Testimonial – Displays below the Featured Video and above the footer widgets.
The theme is coded to be able to use any of the video sites included in the WordPress core oEmbed functionality. Please see the WordPress Codex page about oEmbeds for a full list of compatible video hosting sites which can be used in the featured video section.
Pro Tip: You can use the Order field in the right side Attributes box to set the order for the practice areas to display in the Practice Areas page template. They will show in ascending order with the lowest order number the top.
To display all of your practice areas on one page use the Practice Areas page template.
