What makes a restaurant website bad?
A great restaurant website can attract new customers maintain loyal ones and raise the overall profile of the establishment outside of the physical location. But how do you put together a great website when you - the restaurant owner or operator - are busy with the many other critical tasks related to running your restaurant? This is the problem that plagues restaurant owners they simply don have time to make their restaurant website great. italic And that usually OK. But sometimes restaurant websites make some pretty unforgivable mistakes. Disclaimer As a content marketer & food business writer Ive written about this many many times for the Toast Restaurant Management Blog. Here are the top 1 things that are wrong with most restaurant websites. 1 There no contact information at all. The #1 reason people areing to your restaurant website is to be a guest in some way shape or form. So why wouldn you include your address phone number and email address front and center? Craigie on Main for example includes their contact info in the header of the page 2 The menu is a PDF. According to au2b 213 study u2b 8% of guests want to see the menu before eating at a restaurant. Website visitors want to view your menu quickly and easily often from their smartphones. Don't put your menu in a downloadable PDF format. italic Menus should be listed on an easy-uadto-uadfind (and easy to share) web page that can be found directly from your website's homepage. 3. There no story or reason for guests to want toe to your restaurant. The more content you have on your website the more opportunities you have to attract and engage guests online. Mei Mei Street Kitchen does a great job of this - including information about their restaurant and their food truck content about their local and sustainable approach and even prominent s to job openings and recent press. On top of all that they have a blog where they post about their food events and more. A blog is a great way to keep customersing back to your website and staying engaged with you in between visits. 4. You can order online. If you don offer online ordering - for takeout and delivery - you may be missing out on a huge additional revenue stream. And if you do offer online ordering make it easy for customers to find it on your website! While online ordering sites like GrubHub and Foodler provide the reach and functionality for online ordering they alsoe with big fees . If you have a customer already on your website take advantage of that and let them order straight through your website. Some POS systems will route those orders directly to the kitchen. ( Learn more s ) 5. You can make reservations online. If you take reservations again make that easy to find on your site instead of sending them elsewhere. Make it as easy as possible for guests toe to your restaurant. City Tap House puts a right at the top of their page to make a reservation. 6. Youre not treating it as another revenue channel. If you sell gift cards and merchandise in store why not also sell it on your website? Oftentimes when someone wants to buy a gift they will not be at your restaurant but may still be interested in gifting some of your merchandise or simply a gift card. The easier you make it for customers to spend money with you the more likely they will! 7. Youre not social. Social media is one of the best ways to engage with your customers and share great photos and updates from your restaurant. Be sure to to your social accounts right from your website (and vice versa) and even include a feed of your recent updates and photos - it a great way to add more interesting content to your website! Dutch in Portland ME for example has a big section of their homepage ing to their Instagram account and also s to a bigger gallery of photos theyve taken. 8. There are no press releases or reviews featured. Hopefully you have people saying wonderful things about your restaurant. Make sure to highlight press quotes customer reviews and rewards right on the front page of your website to build up your restaurant profile to your online visitors. 9. There no way to collect email addresses for marketing. Turn your anonymous visitors into known guests you can email by collecting email addresses on your website. Some restaurants have an email signup box others use pop-ups when landing on a website like Southern Belly BBQ. In all cases make sure you have a good reason for someone to give you their email address - such as notifications about uing events exclusive promotions or even fun updates from the staff. 1. The website is not mobile-friendly. According to Confluent Forms s the ratio of mobile sessionspared to desktop sessions has significantly changed in the last year from 28% mobile to 42% mobile an increase of 5%. Whether guests want to grab your address while on their way or to place an online order while sitting on the couch make sure your website looks good and is easy to navigate from a phone; otherwise you risk missing out on a lot of great customers.

I noticed that the free PDFs are of lesser number of pages than the original book. The book seems whole when I read it. Is it a different version?
It might be a case of the pages being a different size. Do a word count. That should not change. It it does and it is a significant change then you might be getting a different version. If the PDF is an authorized version then it should be the same book. Also check the publication date. You could be reading an older edition (this can make a difference especially in books).
Why do PDFs with about the same number of pages differ so much in size?
Themonest reason is authors who don understand how to resize in a document you can drag its edges to make it smaller but it only displayed smaller it still stored at its original large file size. That because the program doesn know whether your readers might want to enlarge it for a better look. If it converted to PDF all that extra information is retained. The remedy is to resize and optimize images before using them and an 8x6 pixel JPG can be reduced to about 3K by a good photo=editing program before the display quality begins to suffer but all the hidden information has been discarded so it can be enlarged. There is a free on-line PDF converter thatpresses PDF files by removing all the extra information that isn needed for display that at smallpdf - dot - - slash -press - dash - pdf which needs reconstructing as Ive had to space the address out so Quora bot doesn mark it as spam. Try it on one of your big files just for fun. Youll be surprised - quite often about 2% of the original size. Back in the 199 when we only had 16 KB dial-up Internet connections everyone worried about file size because a 1MB file would take an hour to download and cost $1 worth of connection time and you couldn do anything else while it was downloading. Plenty of times I had to tell the sender sorry I can receive your file - can you put it on a CD or floppy disk and send it in the mail please? Today generation send each other 1GB files without giving it a thought. Our largest capacity CD in pre-DVD days was 7MB and they cost over a dollar each.
Is there a way to use Python to find how many pages are in est. 3k PDFs and then print those numbers to a spreadsheet column?
How to Work With PDF Documents Using Python s At themand line pip install pypdf2 Then in a Python file import PyPDF2npdf_file = open('')nread_pdf = (pdf_file) number_of_pages = ()nprint number_of_pages If you want to read it into a spreadsheet you can print number_of_pages to an output file and then read the contents of that file into your spreadsheet column. Hope this helps and does not mislead or consufuse you.
How can I convert a PDF to XML?
Disclaimer Im the founder of s a software solution specialised in transforming semi-structured documents (invoices purchase orders reports ) into structured data such as XML CSV JSON. As already mentioned by other there is unfortunately no easy way to convert PDF to XML files. This is simply because the PDF format doesn include any structuring tags like for example HTML does. A PDF file includes in most cases just a flat description of the visual representation of its content. Which means that there are no indicators which would allow you to easily identify hierarchical data and key data points. Some PDF files actually do have XML data stored in their metadata though. For example electronic PDF invoices might have all relevant key data inside the document metadata. But at the time of writing PDFs containing XML data are rather the exception. But there are still ways to convert PDF to XML s ! You have basically two different problems here to solve First you need to get hold of all and s. The way we do it at Docparser is to check if we can extract data and pipe the files through a OCR library if no was returned. In either case I would rmend to rely on Linuxmand line utilities. While you might also find a Python library the Linuxmands usually work much better in my experience. In case we need to handle scanned s as well as hidden returned by the OCR. Once you are sure that the PDF file contains data you can use the Linuxmand line tool PdfToText s with the option - layout. You should then have a representation of your PDF file which has (nearly) the same layout. Convert Extracted Text Into Structured Data This one is difficult to answer without knowing your specific use-case. Converting unstructured or semi-structured into a XML structure can be easy challenging or impossible. It really depends on the kind of data your are dealing with and how granular the output needs to be. At Docparser we developed a set of tools that can help you transform PDF documents such as invoices purchase orders delivery orders etc. into fine grained structured data objects without any coding. If this is something you would be interested in Ill be more than happy to ge you through our free trial.
What are the advantages of ebook versus pdf, regarding academic publishing?
I have limited experience with different epub formats mainly because they seem to be either limited to a hardware platform as in the case of Kindle or limited in content and clunky to use in the case of e-reader apps. Depends how you define the term epub pdf is already epub in the sense that it not paper-based. The main advantage of formats other than pdf I can think of is dynamic layout and pagination which makes effective use of small screens. However that can be either an advantage or disadvantage in the sense that if the author or publisher wants a distinct house style layout in dynamic layout that may be harder. I suppose highlighting andments can be just as easily implemented with both at least technically.
How do I switch my Intel CPU into ring mode 0, and back to its current ring mode?
You really should take weeks to read a book about operating systems; I rmend Operating Systems Three Easy Pieces ~remzi . Then read something about puter architecture s & instruction sets s . By definition CPU modes s are designed to protect software (and also protect from italic buggy code). So if you could carelessly switch to ring in arbitrary ways that ring won obey its functions. Unless you found a huge security hole in your hardware (which is unlikely) switching to ring can only happen in a very controlled way. You should learn more about System call s . BTW I rmend to install and use some Linux distribution because it is mostly made of free software s so you can study the source code and understand in details how things happen. Of course you may need dozens of years to understand most details. See also OS Development which gives technical details (useful if you go into the hobby of developing your own hobby OS; but be careful that takes years of work).
