Support » Plugin: Cooked - Recipe Plugin » New recipe not showing up on homepage or category page

  • Resolved casper1000


    Hi, I just created a recipe using your plugin:

    I am having 2 issues:
    1. It’s not automatically showing up on homepage as the latest post. The category is also missing in the breadcrumb. Is it because I have another reciple plugin installed that is conflicting each other?
    2. The bulleted list is not formatted in the right font.

    Can you please advise? Thanks!

    1. The recipes will not show up on your homepage because they are a custom post type, not regular posts. The theme you’re using is probably only pulling posts, however you might be able to ask the theme developer if they have an option for choosing which types of posts to display there. In that case, you could choose the “cp_recipe” post type to display recipes with your posts.
    2. It looks like the bulleted list issue is more related to the theme you’re using. The font that is displaying is coming from a minified (cached) stylesheet. You might want to ask the theme developer about that issue as well.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more assistance!

    Hi there, I talked to the theme developer. They said that the theme won’t support custom post type because there’re millions of plugins out there. They are not able to do that just for this plugin. The other recipe plugin that i am using is just regular post type. So I have no problem at all. I am afraid that i have to give up your plugin unless it works for my WP theme. I like to use yours, but it’s causing too much work for me. Sorry!

    Another option would be to create your recipes and then create a post that has the recipe embedded within it. You can do this using the [cooked-recipe id="1234"] where “1234” is the post id of the recipe you want to embed.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help here!

    Stray question (as you brought up recipe id’s here) – where would I find the recipe id for the recipes I’ve created (published, as well as possibly draft recipes)? I don’t see that variable on the “All Recipes” page.

    Each recipe, like blog posts, have an id attached. When editing a recipe, you will find this ID in the URL bar at the moment. However, I will be adding a shortcode example to the recipe edit screen itself soon, so they you have quick access to this particular shortcode. 🙂

    Screenshot of the ID in the URL string:

    Thanks for the screenshot. Yes, I see that now – the id on the pre-published/edit recipe screen. But no, not (only) on the recipe edit screen, as then we have to open the edit screen for each.individual.recipe that we might want to use in a shortcode. Better to put the recipe id’s somewhere on the listing on the All Recipes screen so we can see them all at once, yes?
