We just released the very best version of WP Recipe Maker up until today: version 7.5.0. Read on for the highlights and a full changelog or update right away!

Thank you for rating!

Previously, it wasn’t always clear to visitors if they successfully rated your recipe or not. With the latest update you can now show a thank you message to confirm:

Show an optional thank you message after voting for a recipe

You can set the exact text to use for the thank you message in the WP Recipe Maker > Settings > Star Ratings > User Ratings section. Make the field completely blank to not have anything show up at all.

Want to give this new feature a try? Vote for our Amazing Vegetable Pizza recipe on the demo site.

Half stars for user ratings

Another user ratings related update: the rating will now show third and half stars, after rounding up. You can confirm in the screenshot above where it rounded up the 4.41 average rating to show 4.5 stars instead of only full ones.

This better represents the actual average vote and should instill more confidence in the ratings.

Improved add to collection tooltip

In WP Recipe Maker 7.4.0 we introduced a new tooltip for the “Add to Recipe Collection” button where visitors can immediately pick the collection to add this recipe to.

The “Add to Recipe Collection” tooltip

For collections that only have 1 column and/or 1 group this new tooltip could be a bit confusing as it required you to pick the only option from the list, instead of automatically selecting that.

In this new version that workflow is improved and should be more intuitive, requiring less clicks.

  1. I have two questions:
    1. What is the “Analytics” tab used for?
    2. The SEO column, all my pages are the same, about half an SEO bar. What kind of analysis is it performing, and what can I do to improve? I’m using page rank at the moment, and it helps little as it does not seem to read the contents of the wprm-recipe.
