This plugin is absolutely amazing. It does everything it advertises and more. It is so nice to be able to have friends submit their recipes to my website automatically and even from the front end. I love being able to add pics at each step. The whole format is well thought out. Adjusting ingredients automatically when changing the number of people served is awesome. Adjusting the "Metric" or "U.S. Imperial" units automatically after entering a unit in the recipe is very thoughtful.
Ultimate Recipe has unsurpassed support. They have an online support website with all the FAQ's, videos and instructions one can ask for. In the dashboard is a "Help" popup (very non-intrusive) that brings your questions to them directly, no hassle. The amazing part is that they actually get right back to you! Their knowledge is also amazing as they get right to the root of the problem and the solution. They have thought of just about everything and are extremely service oriented. I wish everyone was as good as they are. I just love (and now count upon) their extremely responsive support. It is like having my own personal troubleshooting agent right there with me on my WordPress website! Thank you Brecht for such a wonderful product and such wonderful support and service!!!
I've you've done your research, you'll know that this is a great recipe plugin. But what's really special about it is the amazing support. Even just using the free version, I sent a question to support, and received a reply within hours from Brecht that gave me exactly the info I needed to solve a layout problem. Then, I sent some very specific questions on formatting, and received thoughtful suggestions and code that got me squared away within minutes.
Great support is hard to come by - this level of attention and excellence from the developer makes me confident in going all-in with this plugin for my site.
WP Ultimate Recipe is probably the #1 recipe plugin for WordPress. A lot of bloggers recommend Easy Recipe and the like, but WP Ultimate Recipe is better! I've tried Easy Recipe and I have to say that WP Ultimate Recipe is more user friendly. I'm even using the free version (although I'll bet the full version is worth every cent) and it still has great functionality.
The best part, though, is the absolutely stellar customer service. Brecht is a gift from the heavens. Every couple of weeks I email him with some issue that's totally not WP Ultimate Recipe's fault and he responds lightning fast and fixes it for me. As I write this, having just emailed him with pretty much the same issue I emailed him about two weeks ago, I know he is using his precious time to fix my problems. Thank you Brecht!!!!!
Anyway, if you're not sure which recipe plugin to use, this one is the answer! Don't even bother with the others, because they don't have Brecht to fix your problems. If you download Easy Recipe, have fun, but know that once your theme messes up your post's formatting at 11pm, you'll be riding solo while Brecht fixes another problem that's probably my fault in the first place.
This is an outstanding plugin. It is amazing how much WP Ultimate Recipe does well. I started with the free version and ended up buying the premium. Best decision of the year. The documentation is top notch and the support is even better. When they say priority support they mean it. Thanks Brecht!
Brecht is the f**king man. Dude responds to my cries for help at 11pm on a Friday night while working on a client's website. Not only responds, but exchanges a few mails, recognizes the issue (which was totally my fault) and points me to the solution.
I took almost a full week to decide between recipe plugins and ended up going with this one. Thanks to awesome customer service and a truly dope plugin, I know I made the right choice.
If you're reading this and trying to decide between plugins, stop now and download this.
Simple to use and is just perfect for wordpress
So after I installed Wp Ultimate Recipe plugin I tried to add a related posts plugin and it did not work.
I tried with this 2 very popular plugins:
and neither of them work.
Besides of this I don't like the fact that this plugins makes the posts useless since it forces you to use recipes instead of them. I would rather prefer to use posts and insert my recipes into the posts than use recipes and give up on posts.
I know that there is a possibility to insert this recipes into the posts also but in the same time it creates the recipe page also and there will be problems with duplicate content. (SEO purposes)
Another thing that I don't like is that the templates have a lot of inline style which is not very indicated to use if you try to build a strong SEO website.
On the other side the support for this plugin seem to be good and you can get a response very fast.
We needed a dynamic and functional recipe plugin for our website and WP Ultimate Recipe was the best solution. Soon after installing the WP Ultimate plugin I had some problems with the plugin working on the site. It was late at night when I couldn't get the plugin to allow recipes to be printed correctly. Support was very quick responding to my problem and helped me patiently even when I was not following directions well.
I highly recommend the plugin for functionality, ease of use and support.
Not only is this Plugin Top Shelf, the service behind the plugin is second to none. I had an issue that had nothing to do with WP Ultimate Recipe, yet he spent a few hours rectifying the issue for me. Get the Premium Plugin if you have a food blog, its worth every cent and more!
Super quick responses and very helpful advices.
A lot of options and good ideas in the plugin.
