Import from Recipe Plugins

We support importing recipes from all of these recipe plugins, so chances are you can easily make the switch to WP Recipe Maker:

Start out by installing the plugin alongside your current recipe plugin (your existing recipes will not be affected automatically). We recommend trying to create a recipe in our plugin first and making sure everything looks good.

Before continuing with the import we highly recommend making a backup as well. Next step would be to try and import a single recipe and see if everything converts as expected.

Have a look at the WP Recipe Maker > Import Recipes page to find out what recipes can be imported. It will show you all available recipes on your website:

Recipes to Import

The Explore import options link will take you to an actual list of recipes that are available for importing from that plugin. You can check as many as you like to be imported at once and simply pressing the button will move them over to our plugin:

Import Page

While importing your recipes is really just the click of a button, we do highly recommend going through each recipe and checking the ingredients. WP Recipe Maker uses separate fields for each ingredient part (quantity, unit, name and notes) while many other plugins don’t, so the conversion there isn’t flawless. Why not clean up your older recipes while you’re at it?

For this reason we also have a list of all the recipes you’ve already imported on that same WP Recipe Maker > Import Recipes page. This allows you to mark recipes as checked once you’ve done so and keep track of the ones you still have to go through:

Mark as Checked

If you experience any issues at all during the import, don’t hesitate to contact us!
