Recipe Shortcodes

Recipe Shortcode

While we recommend using the interface to add recipes, you can also display it directly using the recipe shortcode.

  • [wprm-recipe id="123"]

    Display a recipe with a specific ID

  • [wprm-recipe id="random"]

    Display a random recipe

  • [wprm-recipe id="123" template="basic"]

    Display a specific recipe in a specific template (only when using modern template mode)

Feature Shortcodes

Some features have their own shortcode. Add it to a regular WordPress page to display this feature.

Recipe Snippets
  • [wprm-recipe-snippet]

    Add to a page with a recipe to output the recipe snippet

Recipe Roundup Items
Recipe Submission Form
Recipe Collections

Block Shortcodes

Block shortcodes are used in the Template Editor. Their attributes automatically translate to properties that can be adjusted using the Template Editor UI.

Shortcode Generator

The easiest way to find the shortcode you need is to go to the WP Recipe Maker > Template Editor and use the Shortcode Generator. Here you can select any shortcode available and get a UI to change the different properties.

Once you have the block set up the way you want, you can easily copy the shortcode it generated to use elsewhere.

Block Shortcodes in the Template Editor

General Blocks

General blocks are not tied to a specific recipe.

All available attributes can be found in the $attributes value when you check the PHP files in the  /wp-recipe-maker/includes/public/shortcodes/general/ folder.

Shortcode Name
[wprm-call-to-action] Call to Action Learn more
[wprm-recipe-jump-to-comments] Jump to Comments Link/button to jump to the comment form
[wprm-spacer] Spacer Add vertical spacing between elements

Recipe Blocks

Recipe blocks need a recipe to work with. If the  id="123" attribute is not set, the first recipe on the page will be used for outputting, if a recipe can be found.All available attributes can be found in the $attributes value when you check the PHP files in the  /wp-recipe-maker/includes/public/shortcodes/recipe/ folder.
