How to use the Recipe Card Blocks?
For best results & performance, we recommend you to install the Gutenberg plugin too, as in this way your new WordPress block editor will be updated more frequently.
When using the new block editor in WordPress for creating a new post or editing an existing one, you can find the blocks available in this plugin in the WPZOOM – Recipe Card block group:
How to add Recipe Cards with Schema.org Support
If you want to add schema.org compatible recipe cards, just use the block called Recipe Card Block (schema.org):
This block can be inserted just once in a post in order to avoid conflicts in the Structured Data markup needed to make your recipe compatible with Schema Recipe.
Some details of the recipe can be added directly in the block (Ingredients, Directions, etc.), while other details can be entered in the right sidebar with block details (Difficulty, Cuisine, etc.):
If you want to make some changes to the default configuration of new Recipe Card blocks, go to the Settings > WPZOOM Recipe Card page, and adjust the options as you want.
Please note that most of the options from the settings page will be applied only to new blocks that you will add in posts after saving the changes.
No existing blocks will be affected if you make changes on the Settings page.
How to add “Jump to Recipe” button
The plugin offers you the possibility to display automatically buttons at the top in all posts including the Recipe Card Block.
Just go to the Settings page of the plugin, and enable the option Automatically add Buttons under the Appearance section.
Please keep in mind that the buttons will appear, only if the Recipe Card Block is included in the post.
How to Translate Recipe Card Blocks?
Loco Translate will offer you more control, so probably it will be easier to translate the plugin using it.
Currently, the translation of the Recipe Card block will be visible only on the front-end, in the posts. The default version in English will be still visible in the editor, as currently it’s not possible to translate blocks in the Dashboard using Gutenberg.
