404 – Page not found

Whenever you get a 404 error when you didn’t expect it, there’s a chance that flushing your permalinks will solve the problem. Luckily this is really easy. Just go to your WordPress backend and go to Settings > Permalinks. All you have to do there is click on the Save Changes button on the bottom of the page. We also recommend using the Post […]

Converting old posts

You you can switch from a normal post to a recipe post with a plugin like Post Type Switcher. Important: make sure the permalink structure for your recipes is the same as the one for your normal posts. By default WP Ultimate Recipe uses the /recipe/ slug, but if this doesn’t correspond with your current setup […]

Missing Recipe Box

In some themes the actual Recipe Box doesn’t seem to appear, only the title and normal content is shown. If that is the case for you, try adding this custom code to your theme’s functions.php file: function wpurp_recipe_content_loop_check( $ignore_query ) { if( is_main_query() ) $ignore_query = false; return $ignore_query; } add_filter( ‘wpurp_recipe_content_loop_check’, ‘wpurp_recipe_content_loop_check’ ); If […]

Recipe Box below content

It can happen that the Recipe Box appears below any sharing buttons or other fields that should be at the end of the content. If that’s the case, try using the shortcode to specify where you want the Recipe Box or contact us and we can probably provide you with a fix.

Featured Image box missing

Some themes only allow featured images for posts, which is why you won’t be able to add a nice photo of your finished dish to your recipe. If you tried adding a featured image but can’t seem to find the Featured Image box, this might be the case for your theme. Try switching to a default WordPress theme to […]

Plugin – Shareaholic

If you’re using the Shareaholic plugin and want to display share buttons at the bottom of your post the share buttons might end up above the Recipe Box. If that’s the case, try adding the following code to your theme’s functions.php file: remove_action( ‘the_content’, array( ‘ShareaholicPublic’, ‘draw_canvases’ ) ); add_action( ‘the_content’, array( ‘ShareaholicPublic’, ‘draw_canvases’ ), […]

Setting up your License Key

Automatic Premium Updates

WordPress automatically checks for updates every few hours, but you can speed up the process by going to Dashboard > Updates and clicking on the Check Again button:   If  these automatic updates aren’t […]

Translating the Plugin

The language files can be found in the plugin’s /lang/ folder and can be edited with free software like Poedit or plugins like Loco Translate. Instead of directly editing the language files in the plugin’s […]

Plugin Hooks

Plugin Hooks are provided at certain places, allowing you to easily customize parts of the plugin without having to change the source code directly. More information on how to use these hooks can be found in the official WordPress documentation. On this page you can find a list of all the hooks that are currently […]

Minimal Mode

WP Ultimate Recipe is an extensive plugin and will use quite a bit of resources for all it’s features. Unfortunately there’s no performant way of knowing which pages will require all those features and which pages don’t. Therefore the plugin is loaded entirely on each page. Advanced users can use the wpurp_minimal_mode plugin hook to put the plugin […]
