What's new in the GetMeCooking Recipe Template plugin for WordPress version 1.13?

Our recipe plugin keeps getting bigger and better.

In version 1.13 we have made two main changes:

We’ve moved the Dashboard menu’s

We found an issue whereby if two or more plugins are set to use position 2 in the WordPress menu, only the first one will appear. This issue is inherent to WordPress and is described in WordPress enhancement ticket 16856. Thanks to hellquist for reporting it.

So as a result of that, we amended our links so that the ‘Recipes’ link no longer appears in the second position (below ‘Posts’). Instead it will now appear ‘somewhere’ in the top menu, however we have added our GetMeCooking logo to the link to make it easy to identify.

Also, we have added more configuration options to the plugin. Because of this, we have moved the Settings link from within the ‘WordPress settings’ menu, to a top-level menu called ‘GetMeCooking Settings’. This menu now has the sub-menu links:

Do you have a food allergy or intolerance related food blog?

If you do then the second major change of the plugin update is especially useful for you.

At GetMeCooking we focus on the main eight food allergies/intolerances (egg, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts and wheat), but we realised that there are many different types of allergies and intolerances.

We provide tags for the main eight food allergies/intolerances and now we let you add, edit and delete your own tags. We have done this using standard WordPress functionality, so it will be 100% compatible with all other plugins and WordPress themes.

To do this, simply go to your WordPress Dashboard, then ‘GetMeCooking Settings’, ‘Allergies’.

As well as managing allergy and intolerances in here, you can use this screen to see how many of your recipes are tagged with the allergy/intolerance and then click on the number to actually view those recipes.

Good eh? This is all part of our commitment to making the GetMeCooking recipe plugin (and website) more user-centric, because the more we know about the recipes, the better we can fit the recipes to the individual.
