After you've uploaded the Tasty Recipe plugin to your site, the next step is navigating to the plugin settings. 

Log into your WordPress dashboard. Navigate to Settings > Tasty Recipes.

From here you'll see several options in the navigation panel at the top of the page:

Design Tab

From the 'Design' tab, easily select the Tasty Recipe card template you would like to use. You can preview each of the recipe card templates in this article:
What do the recipe card templates look like?

Here, you can easily customize things like:

  • the color of your recipe text

  • the background color of your recipe card

  • your social share footer - the ability to link to a social platform is only available on the Fresh and Bold templates.

Settings Tab

Quick links

From the 'Quick links' dropdown, you'll find several options for disabling or adding links to the top of your recipe posts. 

You can find more information on Quick Links here:

For the Bold and Fresh templates you can personalize which buttons show in the recipe card.

Copy To Clipboard

This option turns on a button that allows readers to copy ingredients to the clipboard to add to their shopping lists.

Default author link 

This is where you can set a default link to a bio page about the author. This link will be used on all recipe cards, unless overrides are set in the individual recipe cards. More information on how to enable this feature and override when needed (guest posts, multiple authors, etc.) can be found in this article:
How do I use the Author Link functionality?

Converters Tab

Recipe Converter

In the 'Converters' tab, you'll find the Recipe Converter options for bulk recipe conversions from other recipe plugins. Before you proceed, we highly recommend the following steps to ensure your existing recipe content is preserved:

• Back up your database - do not skip this step!
• Begin by converting a few recipes individually, before you batch convert. Learn more about that process here:

Once you've backed up your database and converted a few recipes and are happy with the results, you're ready to batch! Follow along with the steps outlined in this article for all the details on batch processing recipes:
