  • In order to add a recipe to your Wordpress blog, using Kitchenbug:



    1. Make sure the the Kitchenbug plugin is installed; If it is not, install it now.


    2. Once the plugin is installed, you should see the Kitchenbug “Mustache” icon (Marked in red in the image below), in your visual editor.



    3. Click on the Kitchenbug icon to open the add-recipe screen


    4. Now enter the recipe title, cooking, prep time, ingredients, directions and more.

      Note - When adding Ingredients: Be sure to enter one ingredient per row.

      We recommend using a standard format for ingredients (example: “2 lb chopped tomatoes”.
      format template: [amount] [Unit type] [ingredient and prep]), in order to make recipes more readable and assist Kitchenbug’s nutritional analysis automatic process.
      When entering directions, use “enter” to separate between the preparation stages. This will create bullet items per direction stage.


    5. Once you’re done filling in the “Add recipe” form, click on “Continue” at the top of the form. This will perform the nutritional analysis and direct you to the tagging screen.


    6. In the tagging screen, you can add manually any tag you want to your recipe,by typing them in separated by comma.


    7. Add an image to your recipe, by direct uploading or by adding it to your wordpress gallery.


    8. Once done click on the “Add recipe to post” button to insert your recipe into the editor. This will create a textual place holder (example: [kitchenbug-your-recipe-appears-here-231]), which represents the location of the recipe in your post, once published.



    Note: In order to edit an existing recipe, simply click on the Kitchenbug Mustache button, to re-open the relevant form.

    Hi Sumitra,

    The above instructions are outdated and refer to adding a new recipe via the Kitchenbug Wordpress plugin. If you need help regarding the Wordpress plugin then please let me know. The 'Create Recipe' feature on the Kitchenbug website will be available in July together with a lot of cool new features.

    kind Regards,

    Gilad
