The recipe plugin does all formating for you and makes recipes Google friendly with Schema.org. It also adds recipe's nutrition!
The first red flag was that it doesn't call the plugin directory correctly in it's code. So if you obfuscate your install with iThemesSecurity by changing your wp-content folder name, the plugin won't work at all.
Then, even after I manually corrected that in the code, it still was breaking the visual editor.
I was going to submit a support ticket, but I saw the developer hasn't resolved anything in 9 months. Saw the multiple tickets addressing the fact that it's not compatible with WP3.9, saw others suggest it's a clone of a different plugin.
All those things together equal STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLUGIN.
Does this automatically update a page I create called Recipe List. Saving tags I use like cake or chicken, etc? And if so, can the list be shown both in text only? Or with photos? Is there a line where I can include where the recipe came from? Can I adjust the colors To compliment my theme? These are the most important thins I am looking for in addition to the schema and nutrition information. Thx
This is ZipList Recipe Plugin clone!
It is rather easy to use - you paste inside your directions, ingredient list and notes and it formats does everything for you.
Now the formatted recipe looks nice, includes calories, has print view and is optimized for Google SEO by using Schema.org
