RecipePress Reloaded


RecipePress Reloaded is a powerful and very flexible tool to manage your blog’s recipe collection. It was designed with the editor in mind and created for easy
and fast usage.
This plugin adds a new post type for recipes to your website. You can publish your recipes as standalone posts, or include in your normal posts and pages.
Organize your recipes in any way you would like. It includes predefined food categories such as cuisines, courses, seasons and difficulties. As creating new categories is
easy it’s up to you which and how many categories you will are creating. Use index pages embedded on pages to make your recipes accessible by title or taxonomy terms. Or use one of
the widgets to create tag clouds or top ten lists.
Of course, you can use all the other WordPress goodies you know from posts in your recipes as well: photos, videos and comments. We have also included new additions such as user 5
star reviews and recipe process shots.
Despite its simplicity it’s giving editors, administrators, designers and developers all the freedom to adapt the plugin to their needs. Features you don’t
need can be deactivated and are hidden from the UI. You can even create your own recipe templates to complete control the look and feel of your recipes. The default ones
are SEO friendly, with support for Google’s JSON-LD recipe schema information.

I needed a plugin to supplement the lack of "recipe SEO" in The SEO Framework. This plugin is a complete solution with a mindblowing amount of options. It is unbelievable this is a free and not a premium plugin. + Complete, I can't imagine anyone could ask for more from a recipe plugin. + Customizable, you can edit everything from ingredient units to CSS. + Truly free, no features behind the paywall. + Modular, the plugin comes with free extensions if you want extra functionality. + SEO ready + White label, I haven't seen any ads or upsell, design blends perfectly into native WordPress dashboard. Cons: - The number of options might feel overwhelming at first. I need to do more testing but so far I am impressed.
What made me choose this particular food/recipe plugin was the ability to arrange ingredients and instructions into groups. And the attributes of a recipe "thingy", such as "courses", "categories", "cuisines", etc., are very well though out and well-integrated into the wordpress architecture. You can also create your own custom attributes as well. All this gives you a LOT of flexibility in how you want to format and present your recipes. Great support, to boot. (That's the 5th star.) Thank you, Jan.
