With Tasty Recipes 1.1.0, we added the recipe card styles into the plugin settings page. Doing this meant that selecting and switching styles was easier for our customers and that we could provide better support for the recipe cards.
If you are currently using the Bold or Fresh recipe card templates, and you uploaded the files to your website theme folder, we recommend switching to the templates that are built into the plugin.
As long as a
tasty-recipes.php file remains in your theme folder, you will not be able to select a template from the Tasty Recipes Settings page. This preserves the template you are already using and maintains the custom template functionality.
Using a Built-In Template
To select a template from the Tasty Recipes Settings page, first log in to your website via FTP. Navigate to your theme folder (
wp-content/themes/your-theme-name ) and delete the
Next, go to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Settings → Tasty Recipes. Select the recipe card style you were previously using. Optionally, add your Instagram handle and hashtag to activate the Instagram footer area.
If you are switching from one template to another (eg. Bold to Fresh, Fresh to Modern Compact, etc) then all
tasty-recipes.css files will need to be removed from your theme folder.
Preserving Custom CSS Changes
If you made modifications to the tasty-recipes.css file, and you want to preserve those modifications, you have two options:
- Leave the
tasty-recipes.cssfile in your theme folder, or
- Copy all the content in the
tasty-recipes.cssfile and paste it into the Additional CSS area of your WordPress Dashboard (Appearance → Customizer → Additional CSS).
We recommend option #2 so that if your theme updates your changes won't be overwritten, but either will work.
Custom PHP Templates
If you customized the PHP file for the Bold or Fresh templates, be aware that switching to the built-in templates will not preserve those changes. Instagram changes can now be handled in the plugin settings page.
