How can users get a editable list of favorite posts?

  • I am using WordPress to develop a recipe site http://www.zesti.net.

    Each post is a recipe. I would like each user to be able to collect favorite recipes/posts by clicking on a button. Like an internal bookmark system.

    There would also be a link which would list all their favorite recipes/posts in a similar style as a list of posts in a category or tag search. They could click another button to delete a post from their list of favorites.

    After 2 days of searching, I can’t find a plugin or solution to achieve this.

    I am thinking 2 options:

    1. Each username is also a tag, and when a user clicks to make a post a favorite, their username is added to the list of tags for that post. Listing all their favorite posts would then be a simple matter of doing a tag search, with their username as the tag being searched for.

    2. The other option is to add a custom field to the user’s profile, which collects post IDs.

    Unfortunately, I do not have the php savvy to achieve either of these.

    I would really appreciate if someone could show me how this could be done (or point me to a plugin that I have missed).

    cheers

  • P.S.

    I would like to keep users away from the backend dashboard. All functions (from a registered users point of view) take place on the front-end website.

    Also, I have seen WP-faves plugin, but its not quite what I’m looking for.

    Impressive site! The funny thing is that im making a recipes site myself and looking for the same thing as you. Anyways i can help you a bit so far:

    At first youll be needing theese plugins/widgets:

    – Ajax Login Widget ++
    Allows easy-one-page user registration, login, and password retrieval (without users having to use backend dashboard)

    – TDO Mini forms
    Im using this one so that users can post (add) recipes still without interacting with backend dashboard, its a form that submits posts directly from your page.

    Next step:
    Im still researching this one – every user that have been registred have to get an individual page where favourite recipes can be saved.

    Step after that:
    Will be to find a way for user to add recipes to his favorites-list. Maybe by placing a button to every post “Save recipe” etc..

    If you find a solution ill be happy to hear it!
    Good luck

    try

    WP Favorite Posts plugin
