Great recipe card
By , for WP 3.6

When I downloaded this originally it didn't work & it took several weeks to get help - BUT when I did get a response back, they were super helpful & now I love it!! Im so glad i kept it. Really user friendly & looks super clean. I just needed to un-install it & re-install it. Thanks!

So Disappointed
By , for WP 3.5.1

Loved the look of this and upgraded to the paid version almost at once.

Put it on my site and have had nothing but trouble since.

Two outstanding support requests, one four days old.

It has crashed my server and the freelance consultant I am paying to populate the site with content is very unhappy as it won’t let her do her job.

Suggest you hold off installing this until someone at the other end responds.


Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.5.1

With this plugin activated, no posts show up - all I get is a blank page. As soon as I deactivate the plugin, the posts show up again.

No longer working properly
By , for WP 3.5

I have the paid version and it's no longer working correctly. The photo never shows up and there's all kinds of weird things that happen. Sometimes the entire recipe will disappear if I go in to edit my post, other times it'll remove the title, author, recipe type and cuisine from the top and I have to enter it AGAIN and again. I am VERY frustrated with this plugin, especially since I paid for it.

Works well, adaptable

Good choice of recipe styles--or create your own. Would be nice if you could turn off guest posting.

Pro version does not import recipes from Cook'n v10
By , for WP 3.5.1

Despite the advertisement, the pro (paid) version does not import recipes from Cook'n v10. Without that import function, Easy Recipe is little more than a recipe formatter. Looks like I'll be looking for freelance help from overseas to cut and paste recipes. Oh well.

Unfortunately, I can't find a plugin out there that will do this. Shame because recipe blogging is a huge interest item.

Activation brought down my entire site
By , for WP 3.5

At 3:00 PM EST 1/24/2013:

Looked like a great plugin, but when activated it took down my entire site. Every webpage returned the message "HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request." while the plugin was active.

Tech support told me to uninstall and re-install the plugin and maybe my theme conflicted with the plugin. After telling them that uninstall/re-install, trying multiple themes and uninstalling all other plugins did not work, I have not heard back.

As of 2:45 PM EST on 1/25/13 I still have not heard back.....

No longer working properly, no support
By , for WP 3.5

No longer working as it used to... support does not respond.. I even have upgraded to premium version. It is now worthless and I can't even use it.

Works beautifully

There are two items that I wish to see in this plugin:

1) A recipe multiplier. Many recipe followers cannot make much adjustment to a recipe. So they either make a recipe with ingredients for 6 and one person eat it for days OR don't cook that dish at all.

2) Add an "unattended cooking time" to the times of a recipe. Some dishes take minutes to put together and an extended time to cook. A dish may baking unattended for an hour or requiring constant stirring for that same hour.

Add #1 and I'll change to 5 stars. Both will get 6!
