ZipList Recipe Plugin

Version: 3.1 Formats recipes so they are SEO-friendly. Now fully supports WordPress 4.0.1.

What happened to the Save Recipe button that was on my recipes?

The save recipe button, recipe box and shopping list are no longer available in the plugin, however, the plugin will continue to display your recipes.

How do I edit a recipe with the ZipList Recipe Plugin?

Starting with version 2.4, you'll want to click the spoon and fork icon on the visual editor toolbar to both create and edit a recipe. You no longer need to click on the image placeholder within the blog post to edit a recipe.

Can I use the plugin to add multiple recipes to one post or page?

There should only be one recipe per post or page. The plugin does allow for compound recipes which is one way to include multiple lists of ingredients in your post (e.g., for a salad and a salad dressing).Simply enter your instructions for the main recipe, then start the next line with an exclamation point to create a label, like "!For the Salad Dressing". Then, add the instructions for the secondary recipe. Starting with version 2.4, we no longer support multiple ZipList-formatted recipes within a single post.

When I use ZipList's plugin, where are the recipes stored?

With the ZipList Recipe Plugin, your recipes are stored safely in a separate DB table in your main WP database. The recipe table is named wp_amd_zlrecipe_recipes and you can take a look at it yourself using any WordPress database tools at your disposal.

What happens to my recipes now that ZipList has gone away

The short answer is "nothing"! :) The ZipList Recipe Plugin simply takes the recipe information from your own database and displays it with SEO annotation. It does this without any connection or communication with the ZipList service and is completely independent. You will continue to enjoy SEO-friendly display of your recipes without any connection to ZipList. Please note that the ZipList Recipe Plugin is no longer actively maintained and may not be updated in the future.

Why do you put a placeholder image into my Edit Post page, instead of my actual recipe?

Because of the way the WordPress text editor works, if you decide to add or remove something from your recipe using the text editor, it can very easily mess up the markup of the code - so the ZipList plugin prevents that from happening by not allowing you to edit the recipe in the text editor.
