No longer working properly
By , for WP 3.5

I have the paid version and it's no longer working correctly. The photo never shows up and there's all kinds of weird things that happen. Sometimes the entire recipe will disappear if I go in to edit my post, other times it'll remove the title, author, recipe type and cuisine from the top and I have to enter it AGAIN and again. I am VERY frustrated with this plugin, especially since I paid for it.

Works well, adaptable

Good choice of recipe styles--or create your own. Would be nice if you could turn off guest posting.

Pro version does not import recipes from Cook'n v10
By , for WP 3.5.1

Despite the advertisement, the pro (paid) version does not import recipes from Cook'n v10. Without that import function, Easy Recipe is little more than a recipe formatter. Looks like I'll be looking for freelance help from overseas to cut and paste recipes. Oh well.

Unfortunately, I can't find a plugin out there that will do this. Shame because recipe blogging is a huge interest item.

Activation brought down my entire site
By , for WP 3.5

At 3:00 PM EST 1/24/2013:

Looked like a great plugin, but when activated it took down my entire site. Every webpage returned the message "HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request." while the plugin was active.

Tech support told me to uninstall and re-install the plugin and maybe my theme conflicted with the plugin. After telling them that uninstall/re-install, trying multiple themes and uninstalling all other plugins did not work, I have not heard back.

As of 2:45 PM EST on 1/25/13 I still have not heard back.....

Found a privacy problem!
By , for WP 3.5

I installed the latest 3.2.1211 and found that it now publish your recipes to http://www.fooderific.com and you can't turn it off. Even with the box unchecked it still pushes your recipes out. My recipes are my own for my use not to beef up someone else's web site!

Also the registration information for fooderific.com is hidden so you cannot see who is behind this site.

Shame on you!

Here's what I did to solve the issue. Look in "easyrecipe/lib/EasyRecipeFooderific.php" and edit this line.

const FOODERIFIC_URL = 'http://www.fooderific.com/plugin/ping.php';

I modified it so the fooderific URL is now blank.

const FOODERIFIC_URL = '';

Don't forget to save!

That seems to stop it from sending out your recipes.

There are quite a few of these WP recipe plugins. So if you cant get this to work try another. I'll give it another chance as I really don't want to have to redo all my recipes, but it's on thin ice.

No longer working properly, no support
By , for WP 3.5

No longer working as it used to... support does not respond.. I even have upgraded to premium version. It is now worthless and I can't even use it.

Works beautifully
By , for WP 3.5

There are two items that I wish to see in this plugin:

1) A recipe multiplier. Many recipe followers cannot make much adjustment to a recipe. So they either make a recipe with ingredients for 6 and one person eat it for days OR don't cook that dish at all.

2) Add an "unattended cooking time" to the times of a recipe. Some dishes take minutes to put together and an extended time to cook. A dish may baking unattended for an hour or requiring constant stirring for that same hour.

Add #1 and I'll change to 5 stars. Both will get 6!
