I would like a plug-in or code that does what this website does. [login to view URL]
Some other sites that have similar functionality are:
[login to view URL] & [login to view URL]
I am not looking for a website, I am looking for a plug-in or some coding that will provide the functionality that I need. I am using a wordpress.
My main goal is for members to upload recipes or view the ones that are there.
-Share recipes with other members by posting them.
-Create a weekly Meal Plan by selecting various recipes from the database and then create a shopping list based on the recipes they selected.
-Calculate the total of carb, calories,fat , macro of each day in the meal plan.
-Set limit of calories per day for the meal plan.
This seems like it could be 1 plug-in with multiple functions. I already have a recipe plug-in that I got from the Wordpress plug-in area that will still work, although I don't know how you could use that to extract the ingredients and info in order to create the meal plan and shopping list. (example you choose 4 recipes, you can choose an option to and have it total all the ingredients from the recipes so the customer doesn't need to figure it out). Perhaps the meal planner would let you choose the items you like to eat ( chicken, green beans, beets etc) - Like what is shown on the Quick Meal section here - [login to view URL]
I am not looking to spend a ton of money on this project and would like reasonable quotes with suggestions on how to keep the budget very low.
Other sites are making this work very easily...
My site will not revolve solely on the recipes, it will have a blog etc. The website already is started and I do not need a website, design work or anything like that. I just need the functionality. If graphics are needed I can provide them to you easily.
Questions you should answer for me:
1. Is the best route to create 1 plug in that does everything or to make multiple plugins?
2. Is a plugin the best idea or some other format that could be used on a wordpress site.?
3. I also need to know how long a project like this would take.
4. is it more feasible to modify a pre-existing recipe plugin such as Recipe Press or WP Recipe to work as needed?
Functions that must be included:
1. Ability to view and upload recipes (even if using a preexisting wordpress plug-in) - with customizable ingredients and various details.
2. Ability to create a meal plan / Calendar
3. Ability to create a grocery shopping list (generated from the recipes that were selected in the meal plan).
4. Members uploads can be viewed by everyone (this is already a feature if members can submit a recipe).
