I am using WordPress to develop a recipe site http://www.zesti.net.
Each post is a recipe. I would like each user to be able to collect favorite recipes/posts by clicking on a button. Like an internal bookmark system.
There would also be a link which would list all their favorite recipes/posts in a similar style as a list of posts in a category or tag search. They could click another button to delete a post from their list of favorites.
After 2 days of searching, I can't find a plugin or solution to achieve this.
I am thinking 2 options:
1. Each username is also a tag, and when a user clicks to make a post a favorite, their username is added to the list of tags for that post. Listing all their favorite posts would then be a simple matter of doing a tag search, with their username as the tag being searched for.
2. The other option is to add a custom field to the user's profile, which collects post IDs.
Unfortunately, I do not have the php savvy to achieve either of these.
I would really appreciate if someone could show me how this could be done (or point me to a plugin that I have missed).
