Adding a recipe in a post using Classic Editor


As I don’t normally use the classic editor, I didn’t know the little cutlery icon existed within the classic editor WYSIWYG – and you can add the recipes in from there within the classic view.

Please can you add this screenshot to your documentation page (url below) as I found the instructions on here very brief and vague because the first step didn’t have a screenshot linked to it visually showing the cutlery icon within the WYSIWYG editor. It only shows the pop-up once you click the button but I couldn’t work out how to trigger that pop-up for ages.

I found it eventually as I went to the FAQ & Support section within the WP Recipe Maker plugin in WP and under the ‘Adding recipes in different editors’ > ‘Classic Editor’ and there was the key screenshot.



Is there a way I can add a recipe into a post using the classic editor?

For context, I’m using Elementor Pro and normally add in a recipe using the elementor WP recipe element. However, to make it easier for my client when they add recipes themselves and prevent them accidentally deleting something off the elementor page, I was hoping to be able to add a recipe field to the classic editor so they can select the recipe to add in the post from there. Basically, exactly like the way it works in elementor but in the classic mode.
