Make sure to not insert too many widgets, as it’s recommended to have 2-4 widgets in it.

2. After that, insert the WPZOOM: Tabs widget in the Sidebar, in the location where you want the tabs to appear.

CookBook – Known Issues & Fixes

Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

Featured Posts not appearing in the Slider

If a specific post was marked as Featured, but it doesn’t appear in the Slider, it means that it’s possible that you also marked that post as Sticky.

The Slider from the CookBook theme is configured to exclude Sticky posts, as these posts may cause problems, and it’s hard to re-order them.

We recommend you uncheck the Sticky option from posts you also mark as Featured.

If you don’t see a navigation menu on mobile devices, it means that no existing Menu was assigned to Menu location named “Mobile Menu”.

CookBook – How to Add Affiliate Disclosure

Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

How to add a Global Disclosure in All Posts

If you are not sure which posts you have inserted affiliate links or other information from which you’re earning money, probably it’s a good idea to add a disclosure in all your blog posts.

You can do that easily using the option located in the Theme Options > Single Post Options:

In the above option, you can insert a short text which will appear at the beginning of all posts, below the date. Some HTML code is allowed, so you can also insert a link to a page with your full disclosure.

If you prefer to have more control, there is also a widget area located at the top of posts in the new version. The widget area is named Single Posts (before content), and you can insert in it any widget or shortcode you want:

On wordpress.org you can also search for “affiliate disclosure” and you can find some plugins which include more features for adding your affiliate disclosure.


How to Add Disclosure in Individual Posts

If you want to add disclosure statements only in some of your posts, you can quickly do that using the new Block Editor.

Just insert a new paragraph block and add some styling to it:

In the above example, we’ve changed the text size to be smaller, font style to italic, and grey color.

To insert the same text in other posts quickly, you can save the block as a Reusable Block:

Then go in a different post, and find the saved block under the Reusable Blocks:

Keep also in mind that if you edit a reusable block in a post, this block will be updated in other posts.
