ItemList metadata for Recipe Roundup posts
See the Recipe Roundup feature in action
Why should I use this?
By using our feature we automatically output the metadata this allows you to show up in Google like this:
In the above example, one of our customers used this exact feature for a Valentine's Day roundup post and had her post showing up as a carousel in Google.
As you can see you'll get a lot of attention with links to the roundup post itself and links to the individual recipes as well. This is only possible because of the metadata we added!
Take note that you might not want to add this metadata on a page that already has regular recipe metadata. This is possible by enabling "No metadata when there is recipe metadata" on the WP Recipe Maker > Settings > Recipe Roundup page.
Changing the Recipe Roundup Item template
By default a Recipe Roundup Item is a simple button that links to the recipe itself, allowing you to layout your roundup post any way you want.
This template can be changed on the WP Recipe Maker > Settings > Recipe Roundup page:
It's possible to edit this template using the Template Editor, adding recipe elements like the image, name and summary we used in the example on our demo website.
Creating Roundups in the Block Editor
Add a new WPRM Recipe Roundup Item block to your post or page:
This will add a placeholder to your content and requires you to select a recipe as the next step:
You can add as many of these Recipe Roundup Items to the content, anywhere you want. They will automatically become part of the ItemList metadata.
Finally, it's also possible to enrich that metadata with a name and description. Just click on any of the Recipe Roundup Item blocks to set those values in the sidebar.
The sidebar will also list the number of items in your list, as a check.
Creating Roundups in the Classic Editor
Click on the "WP Recipe Maker" button and then choose the "Recipe Roundup Item" under Other Features to add a recipe:
Linking to external websites
While external websites won't be part of the itemList metadata (that's not allowed), you can still add a roundup item for them so you end up with a uniform layout:
