Blog Site Changes

I have made some changes with how the blog handles recipes.  No recipes have been deleted, although many of the url’s have changed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why did I do this?  I use a recipe plugin (an add-on program) to enter the recipes.  It is call WP Ultimate Recipe Plus.  This allow you, the viewer to change the number of servings a recipe makes.

I have changed the default print out layout to a blue background.  BTW, if you cancel the print when the print recipe comes up,  by default this plugin just closes the print manager window and keeps the print recipe displayed.  The links are clickable and will bring the search window.

If anyone has any suggestions on how I am improve the layout or print out leave a comment below.  I can modify some settings.  Just remember I am only learning how to do this, so it might take some time to get it right.

      What I love with the WP Ultimate Pro plug-in it gives me many options different from Easy Recipe. Though it is harder to use, in the long run it kind of allows for more user interface that I think most people do not realize. Sometimes it is nice to look for another recipe with a special ingredient so just find one recipe with that ingredient then you can get them all. Example egg yolk recipes. Maybe I need to come up with an easy way to search by ingredient on a separate page,

      Thanks for the kind words.
