I purchased the Easy Recipe Plus because I want all available options within the plugin. After using for several weeks I had a conflict with another plugin. John has worked tirelessly to help me resolve this. He even helped me with some code I didn't understand. I would give this and the support 6 stars!
Purchased, tried formatting a few recipes but couldn't get it working the way I wanted. John refunded my payment within 2 hours of me requesting a refund.
The plugin is Ok, and the support seems good - it just didn't work for me.
I’ve download and installed the Plus. I had Ziplist before and learned to convert those pretty easily.
Everything seems to be working fine - recipes are displaying and I even made some design changes. However, I cannot click on the “chef icon” in edit mode. Matter of fact, there’s no icon. Next to the “close tags” button, to the right is a “EasyRecipe” button (not an icon), just said EasyRecipe.
When I had Ziplist, the toolbars are different in both Visual tab and Text tab (which is normal). With EasyRecipe, the toolbars don’t change. In the Text tab (and when I click on the “EasyRecipe"button), it of course said “Switch to the Visual Editor to add or edit an EasyRecipe”. But when I click on the Visual tab, the page/editor is completely blank.
I dont know what’s going on. I opened a ticket with them so hopefully John would be able to help to resolve this. However, a confirmation of some sort would be nice, knowing that it's delivered to the right person to take a look.
Lack of semantics hurming the site SEO performance
The plugin works perfectly and the support from John in helping me modify things has been nothing short of stellar.
I would give it six stars if I could.
At first, I was liking the plugin. Was moving over from Recipe Card because I didn't like being forced to promote a third party site.
Well, after install, this plugin had a nice popup to convert recipe card recipes including image. But when you go to add another recipe you won't be able add an image without spending 25 bucks. That's bs.
It also has a new UI css file which is screwing things up with a theme. The old UI file classes were specific to this plugin, should stay that way!
Author... find better things to charge for than basic element like adding a photo!
Absolutely the worst customer service I have ever experienced. I currently have three or four tickets including a please refund my money now ticket working with absolutely no response in the last two weeks. I too thought this plugin looked awesome and immediately upgraded from the free to plus plan. Buttons do not work as described and the support is terrible. STAY AWAY!
I really wanted to like this plug in; I even upgraded to the paid version and it has just been a major disappointment.
Sure, it looks great (one star for that) but it has too many bugs.
For instance, if I do a spell check in WP, it adds some code to every misspelled word or words WP doesn't recognize. I'll have to manually remove this string of code from my recipe which is very time consuming. I can no longer use the WP spell check for this reason
My first support ticket got a response after three weeks; I submitted one about the spell check issue which was over two months ago!! Some free apps have way better support than this app I PAID FOR.
Needless to say I'll be looking for a better solution.
I have Easy Recipe Plus and I generally don't have issues with it, but when I do, they respond quickly to get it working again.
Best plugin for food and recipe bloggers!
Ziplist slowed down my site. Easy Recipe does not. When I couldn't get the live formatting to work, John took the time to walk me through everything that could be wrong, eventually finding out that it was a compatibility issue with another plugin. Problem solved! I love the look of the recipe card, the plugin is easy to use, but most of all I'm happy that it isn't slowing down my site, since I believe that Google penalizes slow sites.
