Breaking Change – Restaurant Menu Plugin Version 3.0.0
Headsup: We will release this update on 8th June, 2018 around 4PM Australian Eastern Time (UTC +10)
What was wrong earlier?
The HTML markup of the menu item was not valid. The title, description and price tags of the menu item was in a H5 tag. It’s not semantically correct. Before it starts to cause any real issues, we’d like to fix it.. Also, we canot apply responsive styles to the menu item due to the way to markup is setup.
Its our mistake and we apologize for the inconvience caused. We have laid out a plan to ensure to fix your website.
Below is a representation of the semantically incorrect markup.
How will it affect me?
Here is a representation of the semantically correct markup.
The menu item title is now in a H5 tag. The menu item description and price are no longer in the H5 tag and now are sibling tags to the H5 tag
You may loose any custom css style applied to the description and price tag. Due to change in the markup, the CSS selectors are different now.
What should I do?
Taking the following steps should ensure a quick turnaround.
Login in your WordPress Admin and open the page containing your Restaurant Menu Divi Module in edit mode. Save this page without making any changes. Divi Theme caches the template in the browser application cache. This step refreshes that cache.
Preview this page to check if its affected.
If there is an isssue,
In all likelyhood, the menu item description and price element styles isn’t what it used to be.
We had a report that the tool wasn’t working as well as it should so we updated it and release a new patch today to make it happen for you.
More and more often Facebook is the go to destination for anyone online so supporting the embed of these videos was a real problem we needed to solve.
We had a report last week that it needed to happen for some of our users so we made it work this week with a new release.
Hope you guys like it and remember – we are serious about being the best at responding to our customers. We don’t always get it 100% right but we want to make sure you guys have confidence in how our modules and plugins work.
If you have any issues let us know and we will often have an update in 7 days. If its something more complex sometimes it may take longer however in most cases we will let you know and commit to an update schedule.
The module integrates with the OpenTable booking widget providing a native module so you can easily manage your settings.
This means you can now take bookings directly on your Divi WordPress website for your OpenTable booking system.

Default Behaviours for the Open Table Module for Divi
Free OpenTable module – Module Settings
The OpenTable Divi Module allows you to enter your restaurant ID. You need to get the restaurant id directly from your open table account.
The next option is language. We have a number of options provided by default from OpenTable.
Widget type is a way to select a layout option for your OpenTable reservation method. The plugin provides 4 types – Standard, Wide, Tall and Button Only. I personally would recommend the button type as its simple and loads fast.
The Team at Divi Framework added in the alignment options and the ability to load the widget in an iframe. This can be helpful if you have styling conflicts from your website as the styles will have no conflict issues with an iframe.
The advanced tab provides the normal CSS styling options expected for any Divi Module in the backend.
Yeah – its never enough so we also added in some basic styling to help you get the most out of the widget and not have problems with the default Divi Stylesheets from causing render issues. It should work in most cases but remember you have the fallback of the iframe if you have any major problems.
Remember this is also the default OpenTable offering which means you can have confidence in its abilities and it working moving forward, we have simply made a great wrapper for Divi to make it easy to use.
Hope you guys enjoy this one and keep an eye out for even more awesome tools for those of you making restaurant websites over the coming weeks.
