Creating Review Pages
In your WordPress dashboard you will find a new menu called Sportsbooks right below the Pages menu link. Click
Add New to add a new sportsbook review.
Besides adding your review title and content as usual, you’ll find Sportsbook Review Fields section below page content. Here you can define properties for each review. The fields are in separate sections and have descriptions to make it easy for you to fill them in. To see what they look like you can check one of the demos available here.
To customise the plugin options visit Sportsbooks -> Settings in your WordPress Dashboard where you can define all plugin options.
There are multiple blocks available for you to use in your pages and posts. There are 2 groups of blocks:
- ones you can use in all pages
- ones you can use in review pages
Blocks that you can use on all pages are Reviews Tables and Grids. Simply add the blocks, select reviews you want to display, choose the settings and they are ready.
Review Page Blocks
These are blocks that display specific information about the sportsbook/review such as General Information, Ratings, Pros and Cons, CTA.
The same functionality that blocks offer can be achieved with shortcodes. If for some reason you're not using blocks, you can easily use shortcodes instead. One instance of using shortcodes would be displaying them in sidebar widgets where blocks are not available yet.
There’s a shortcode generator to make it easier adding shortcodes to your pages. Simply visit Sportsbooks -> Shortcodes in your WordPress dashboard, choose the shortcode you want to add and adjust the necessary options. Copy and paste the generated shortcode where you need.
Kemoku comes with a sportsbook widget which can be used to display information about the selected sportsbook in sidebar widgets, as well as in footer area if your theme has one. Simply add the Sportsbook Widget to the widget area of your choice, select the sportsbook from a dropdown list add an optional widget heading and save it.
Note: If you have a separate sidebar for Kemoku review pages you can use shortcodes available in review pages in widgets as well. The shortcodes are:
[sb_info] [sb_pros_cons] [sb_ratings]
