This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Recipe Hero BigOven


This plugin integrates your site with BigOven so you can add a ‘Save Recipe to BigOven’ button.

You can use the Recipe Hero BigOven settings to automatically add it to the top of your recipes. Additionally, it comes with a [rhbigoven] shortcode that will add a save button anywhere too.

Contributing: Why not help out? This project is being actively developed on GitHub. Feel free to report issues, help others and make pull requests!

Known issue: In our first release, if you have a URL with multiple Recipe Hero recipes, only the first one will be chosen. We’ll be addressing this with BigOven in the near future, either letting the user pick from among the multiple recipes or specifically identifying the recipe which the user chose. So for now, the automatic addition of the save button will only be on single recipes, and we recommend only using the shortcode on single recipes.


After activating the plugin, go to Recipe Hero > Settings and you’ll find a new Integration settings tab. In there under BigOven you can configure the extension.


They’ll come automatically through the WordPress dashboard – just relax and keep cooking.
