Recipe Rich Pins for ZipList

Description

ZipList is officially shut down as of December 10, 2014. This plugin will no longer function nor receive any new updates.

We recommend Easy Recipe Plus as it includes recipe rich pin features alongside being a great recipe plugin replacement.

If you’re using the ZipList recipe plugin, your recipe posts already outputs most of the fields you need for rich pins.

This plugin simply adds any missing Schema.org meta tags and provides a link on each post edit screen to quickly validate all fields with Pinterest.

FAQ

Applying for Rich Pins

The first time you use the rich pin validator, you’ll need to apply for rich pins with Pinterest.

Click “Apply Now” and enter your domain name without the “http://” (i.e. “myawesomesite.com”).

Make sure to select the data format “HTML Tags”, then click “Apply Now”. At this point you’ll need to wait for approval from Pinterest by email.

After you’ve been approved by Pinterest, you can revisit any validation link again to check.
