If you already have a website for your restaurant, you can easily install the UpMenu system on it. You can also send the installation instructions to your developer or administrator.
Installing UpMenu on an existing website

Customers entering your website will be able to order online. Check how the installation of the online ordering system influenced the success of our customers.
Advanced settings for installation on an existing site
Advanced settings allow you to customize the Iframe on your website. Changes can be made during the installation of the page or after its completion by re-editing.
a) How to set Iframe
Here you can decide how your restaurant's menu will be displayed on your site after the Iframe code has been entered. You can choose from 3 options:
- "Menu with orders embedded on the page" - the menu of your restaurant will be available as the content of the page where it will be placed.
- "Floating widget on the right" - your restaurant menu will be available as a widget (interactive graphic element) on your website.
- "Both of the above" - after selecting this setting on the restaurant's website, the menu settings embedded on the website and the floating widget will work simultaneously.
When selecting a widget option, you can customize its appearance through the settings:
- "Background" - the background color of the widget
- "Text" - the color of the widget text
- "Open in a new window" - by default, the widget opens as a modal on the page, while after selecting this option, orders will open in a new tab.
b) Offset from page top
If your website has floating navigation, we recommend using the option
"Spacing from the top of the page". Thanks to this, the navigation while scrolling the page will not overlap the basket. Depending on the size of the navigation, enter a value in pixels (usually in the range of 100-200 pixels).
c) Select page
By default, the Iframe code displays the menu along with online orders. You can also use it to display the booking form. Check how to do it.
If you have a chain of restaurants, by default Iframe shows a list of all your places. You can also choose to show online orders for a specific venue. By selecting one place from the list, the Iframe code will be modified and information about the selected place will be added to it. Copy this code and place it in the desired place on your website.
The menu with online orders is displayed according to the language settings in the UpMenu administration panel.
If you have a site in multiple languages, you can place online orders in the appropriate language on your site. By selecting an available language from the list, the Iframe code will be modified and information about the selected language will be added to it. Copy this code and place it in the desired place on your website.
