How to use the recipe shortcode/builder with WordPress 5+

Kale Pro and Elara Pro have a recipe card feature that works by clicking a "carrot" button in the editor, which then launches a form where you can fill out the recipe fields. 

WordPress 5+ introduces a new content creation experience, called the Gutenberg editor. Try it out and read more about it by going here:

The Gutenberg editor which comes default with WordPress 5+ replaces the old editor. This hides (disables) the Kale Pro / Elara Pro "carrot" recipe card builder button. 

In order to keep using the recipe card builder while we work on incorporating the recipe card into the new editor, we recommend that you use the familiar Classic Editor

Please note, Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until 2024, or as long as is necessary.

Installing and Activating the Classic Editor

The Classic Editor plugin restores the previous WordPress editor and the Edit Post screen. 

To install, visit your plugins page and click the “Install Now” button next to “Classic Editor”. After the plugin finishes installing, click “Activate”. 

After that, please go to the Settings > Writing screen and set the following options:

  • Default editor for all users: Classic Editor
  • Allow users to switch editors: Yes
