Unit Conversion

See the Unit Conversion feature in action

Setting up the Unit Conversion Feature

After installing the plugin, go to the WP Recipe Maker > Settings > Unit Conversion page to set up the Unit Conversion feature.

You can define the unit system you currently use, the one you’d like to convert to (usually US Customary and Metric, or the other way around) and you can also define aliases for the common units, to make sure the plugin recognizes your way of writing them. This is what the settings page looks like:

Using the Unit Conversion Feature

After enabling the settings you’ll see a new Unit Conversion tab in the modal when creating or editing a recipe. On this tab you can manually define the values for the other unit system, or have the plugin calculate the values for you:

We integrate with an external API so the plugin knows that 1 cup of water is not the same quantity as 1 cup of rice in metric units. After calculation you still have full control over the values shown, so feel free to adjust to your liking.
