Support » Plugin: EasyRecipe » Gutenberg

    I tried a few recipes in Gutenberg this morning and ran into some issues with Easy Recipe. If I edit a post with a recipe on it (I was editing text outside of the recipe), each line of the recipe and instructions were then duplicated (i.e. appear twice) when I updated the post. To fix this I had to disable Gutenberg, load the post in the original editor, and manually remove the duplicate lines.

    Also, clicking on a recipe in Gutenberg does not bring up the Easy Recipe editor. Clicking ‘Add a recipe’ or ‘Edit a recipe’ does nothing.

    I’m not sure when Gutenberg is going to be forced upon us but for now it appears that it and Easy Recipe don’t get along very well.

    We are working on a Gutenberg compatible version of EasyRecipe right now and it will be available before Gutenberg is released in the WordPress core (WordPress version 5.0 – there is no expected release date as yet but there are still a LOT of changes happening to Gutenberg, so I doubt it will be “soon”)

    Thank you very much for your speedy reply. If you need any testers I’m more than happy to help.

    Have a great weekend.

    Thanks for the offer Mike, I’ll keep that in mind.

    Hello, any news concerning compatibility with Gutenberg?

    Today has been released the Release Candidate of WordPress 5.0. Do you still have any plan to make EasyRecipe compatible with Gutenberg?

    Several customers have been using EasyRecipe (and also the Plus version) for years and now they’re a little bit afraid because of the upcoming WordPress updates.

    Thanks in advance.

    We are still working on it. As well as the changes for Gutenberg compatibility, we are making some massive improvements to the plugin and this is taking a little longer than we hoped.


    Can you please tell us when we can expect the updates and Gutenberg compatibility?!
    My entire blog is broken by the EasyRecipe plugin. If it takes a long time, I have to use an other plugin and transferring it will take a lot of time….
    So not happy about this!

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Tastyshot,

    You should find that existing posts that contain an EasyRecipe will display just fine on the frontend with the latest WordPress.

    To modify existing recipe posts or to add new recipe posts, you can re-install the WordPress Classic editor ( and use EasyRecipe with that.

    We are working on an updated version and will release it just as soon as we can.

    Thanks Jayce53 – that worked for me. Back online! Chrissie
