API Status

For the Nutrition Facts Calculation and Unit Conversion features, WP Recipe Maker makes use of (and pays for) the Spoonacular Food API. Our access is handled through RapidAPI, which is a hub for discovering and connecting to different APIs.

Most of the time, this all works flawlessly, but unfortunately it does happen that something breaks down in one of those 3 places: WP Recipe Maker, RapidAPI or Spoonacular. Unfortunately only the plugin side is under our control, so sometimes the only thing we can do on our end is waiting. If something breaks down, we’ll use this page to give you a status update and let you know what we know.
