Getting Started

Introduction

PizzaTime2 is a reincarnation of the old PizzaTime plugin and it aims to be more flexible, more user friendly and support more product types.
This documentation is for PizzaTime2 only.

Prerequisites

PizzaTime2 is essentially a WordPress/WooCommerce plugin, so the requirements are as follows:

  • WooCommerce 3.4+
  • WordPress 4+
  • PHP-gd library (optional)

Installation

After you purchase the plugin you should receive pizzatime_bundle.zip file which contains two files: pizzatime.zip and pizzatime2.zip.
Pizzatime.zip contains the old version of the plugin which is no longer supported. Pizzatime2.zip is the new plugin and it's recommended for installation.
Either zip file can be installed through the WP admin area or manually using an FTP client.
If you get the "The link you followed has expired." message kindly check this solution or use the FTP installation method.

Basic Usage

Once the PizzaTime2 product is created you can use it directly on the product page or with the [product_page] shortcode.
The plugin comes with 3 presets: Pizza Builder, Salad Builder, Fruit Salad Builder.
These videos show how to create PizzaTime2 products with the default presets:

Theme Compatibility

Make sure that your theme supports WooCommerce. It's worth checking how the product page looks like. The plugin follows theme's layout, so keep in mind that the product image column should be wide enough as this will be the column where the pizza image is displayed.

FAQ

Please refer to the FAQ page.

License

The plugin is open source and GPL licensed.
