I am trying to make as best I can

as recipe site I need to have:


-ingredient with link to recipes with same ingredient
-search recipes by choosing some ingredients
-recent recipes
-popular recipes
-similar recipies (you may also like)
-make weekly or monthly menu (registered users)
-create grocery list from menu
-create ebook from recipe list selection (admin only)

    Hi @KSM,

    Welcome to the forums!

    Wow! That's quite a shopping list you have there... pun intended :slight_smile:

    If you will allow me some time to collect some references, I'll get back to you later today with something useful. Fair enough?

    BTW, I'll be closing the other 2 threads you started on this same topic as they are identical. And we don't want to have responses to the same question by the same member on 3 different threads; gets pretty confusing :slight_smile:

    Hi again @KSM,

    Sorry about not getting back to you yesterday (busy, busy).

    I've come up with a few ideas to help you improve your site the way I think you want. I haven't found anything to help you automatically make a grocery list from weekly/monthly menus though, sorry.

    Ingredient with link to recipes with same ingredient
    Search recipes by choosing some ingredients

    I imagine that, ideally, you would like each listed ingredient to be a clickable search term that links to a search results page with other recipes using the same ingredient. I haven't been able to find a plugin to help you do that directly. However, the following plugin will allow your users to build their own search query. As a simple example, they could search for all recipes in the "Snacks" category with "Chocolate" as an ingredient.

    Create ebook from recipe list selection (admin only)


    If anyone else has ideas, feel free to jump in! :slight_smile:
