Frequently Asked Questions

If you are looking for information on how to use our solution, please see our documentation.


Can I use my own Domain?

Yes, that's no problem at all (and free). If you already have a domain with GoDaddy or another provider, you'll be able to follow our instructions here to connect it.

How does Happytables work?

We provide a full solution for independent restaurant owners who not only wish to have a powerful website, but also one that they can easily manage themselves. We don’t believe in setup fees or minimum terms. Decide for yourself and sign up today.

Are advertisements shown on my website?

No. We want our restaurants to be successful, which means they need to be able to display credibility. The only link we have on every website is one that goes back to Happytables (in the form of "Website by Happytables"). Even this is at the very bottom of your website.


Are there any other costs?

There is no setup fee or minimum term (even for our free plan). We make revenue in part by having affiliate agreements with reservation and online ordering partners, but it's up to you if you want use any of these services. There's certainly no requirement from our side.

What payment methods do you accept?

Credit Cards, specifically: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB and Discover


Do you also sell WordPress themes?

We do not sell individual WordPress themes. We work with our themes as an integral part of a larger overall solution. If you are looking for something specific for a network of restaurants, we have created a white label offering which you may find interesting.

I'd like to add my own CSS, can I do that?

That's no problem, as a premium user you have a CSS editor you can use. This starts off as a blank file so that we can retain your changes as we update core CSS files. It's also loaded last so that it has precedence.

Can I add my own plugins?

Unfortunately not as we are a web solution for restaurant owners rather than a hosted WordPress solution. We are happy to consider plug-in suggestions but need consider design and usability across the whole solution as part of any decisions we make.

Is anything of yours Open Source?

As WordPress developers we’ve all been involved in the WordPress community with core contributions, releasing free plug-ins, speaking at WordCamps etc. With Happytables we’ve opensourced the backbone of our themes and our framework. It can be found and forked at github.
