Why do the fields not show up when I add a recipe?

Occasionally, a user will come across a problem where the Tasty Recipes recipe adder does not show the fields to add ingredients, instructions, etc. Here's what that might look like:

In other cases, the recipe adder window will not appear at all. We've identified a couple conflicts that would create this problem. 

Outdated Safari Browsers

Outdated EasyRecipe Plus Versions

Some versions of the EasyRecipe Plus plugin have javascript errors that prevent Tasty Recipes from loading properly on the back end (but they show up just fine to your visitors). This only affects adding new recipes – you can convert your recipes from EasyRecipe Plus just fine.

If you need to have both EasyRecipe and Tasty Recipes active at the same time, here are our recommended steps:

  • Make sure you have a backup of your site (always the first step!)
  • Install & activate the free version of the EasyRecipe plugin
  • Deactivate EasyRecipe Plus (don't delete it yet)
  • Make sure your EasyRecipes still show up (they should)
  • Test Tasty Recipes to make sure everything works as expected, including adding a new recipe
  • Convert a few recipes to Tasty Recipes for testing, then convert all once you're happy with the conversion results
  • Deactivate & delete EasyRecipe and EasyRecipe Plus
