Add thumbnails to the Google results for your Recipes. Make your food blog shine!
You can download and install the Recipe Schema Plugin using the built-in WordPress plugin installer.
If you download the Recipe Schema Plugin manually, unzip it and upload the recipe-schema folder to your website. The foler should go in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Activate the Recipe Schema Plugin in the "Plugins" admin panel using the "Activate" link.
There are a couple of Settings for Recipe Schema. To set them, click on Recipe Schema under the Settings menu in the WordPress Admin screen. * You can let readers bookmark recipes on Facebook through Mr. Cookbook. This is a small website I created that makes it possible to collect recipes across website using this plugin. * You can hide/show the Printer button. * The Featured Image for a Recipe can also be shown. This setting won't affect whether Google shows thumbnails or not. * You can add to the Recipe Type and Cuisine Taxonomies for Recipes
** Template ** To change the way Recipes get printed out, click on the Templates tab under settings. Make changes to the Template code here. Remove sections you don't wanted printed out, like the Prep time for example, or change how they are formatted. It is PHP code, so you will need to know a little about programming.
Your changes to the Template will get lost whenever this plugin gets updated. If you want to keep your changes, it is probably best to make a copy of /wp-content/plugins/recipe-schema/templates/default.php
In future version I am going to make this suck less.
