WordPress Recipe Plugin Coming Soon (with easy Ziplist Import)

At BigOven, we’re working on a WordPress plugin for food bloggers that will let you create recipes in rich-snippet format, provide “save recipe” and “make grocery list” features for your readers, and more.

Stay tuned by following us here (http://wordpress.bigoven.com), on Twitter (@bigoven) and blog.bigoven.com.

What do you want in a recipe plugin?  In version 1.0, we expect to have:

  • Recipe SEO markup
  • Rich snippet support (Google rich snippets, using hRecipe microformat)
  • Simple import of all your recipes from Ziplist format
  • Recipe media types allowing basic and advanced fields for recipes
  • Optional “Save Recipe” button, allowing cooks to save the recipe for later and/or add items to a mobile grocery list

Soon after that, we’ll be prioritizing print-friendly recipe formatting and features we hear from you.  We expect this plugin to be free, and will fully support WordPress 3.x and 4.0 and beyond.  We have a lot of features in our Kitchen Cloud platform that can take the tech-drudgery out of being a great food blogger.

What’s in it for us?

We want all food bloggers to know about BigOven and help us surface some of the best recipe ideas on the web.  And we we want even more consumers to use our easy recipe organizer for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone.

BigOven’s free mobile recipe organization and grocery apps, now with more than 11 million downloads and approaching 3 million registered users, each earn better than 4-out-of-5 star ratings on the major app stores, and we’re constantly improving them.  The recipe organizer is already pretty feature-rich, with an easy grocery list, recipe clipper, menu planner, and recipe dashboard.  Additional grocery list and recipe organizing features are on their way.
