It is a great plugin, and just brought the add Ingredients plugin.
After install the ingredients plugin, it makes the setting is quite complex. It makes me cannot easy to do the setting because too many options can do….
So, do you have a user manual or user guide with live example to teach people how to use it?
By using menu items with
– Meal Size Options
how to achieve the following?
Setting a menu item (breakfast option A) selling $25. it has 2 options for customer select,
(1) sandwich with 1 type of Ingredient;
(2) sandwich with 2 types of Ingredient (add $2)
Available Ingredients can be choose from:
(1) egg, (2)cheese, (3)onions, (4) xxxx, (5) xxxxx, ……
Breakfast includes one hot drink by default; available options: (1) coffee, (2) tea
hot drink change to ice drink need add $2.
if exclude drink, it will deduce $2.
Could you teach me how to set it? Thanks a lot17 September, 2014 at 6:57 pm #5126
did you read the howto ?18 September, 2014 at 6:17 pm #5154
Yes, but still can’t understand…. Could you add more cases on it? …. especially on the custom group…19 September, 2014 at 11:22 am #5181
havent forgotten you
i’ll see what i can put together19 September, 2014 at 3:30 pm #5184
actually – as i understand you – you are trying to chain things i.e have a nested hierarchy like this (omitting drinks here for the moment)
menu item [a]: breakfast
-sandwich with one ingredient
–choose 1 ingredient of the following:x,x,x,x
-sandwich with two ingredients
–choose 2 ingredients of the following:x,x,x,x
so sandwich is one ingredient really and the ingredients for that are essentially ingredients for an ingredient …. hope that makes sense)
whereas what is is designed to do is this (i.e :
menu item [a]: sandwich with one ingredient
– choose your one ingredient
menu item [b]: sandwich with 2 ingredients
– choose your 2 ingredients
which you should be able to do quite easily.
having said that. you could also do your thing by duplicating ingredients and then have those duplicates in their own 2 custom groups (first one being the free ones, second one being the ones with an additional charge of 2.00 , where in both groups you can only select one )
However, ignoring all of the above and given that i have also found a couple of minor bugs whilst messing around – i think I should be able to add something to the plugin that lets you do this more elegantly without having to duplicate ingredients….
give me a few days and there should be an update to the plugin and i’ll post a screenshot here how to set it up
hope that helps (?)19 September, 2014 at 7:52 pm #5185
Thanks a lot, and I will have a try.
Besides, will you implement the sorting function on showing menu items of a category? I found it needs to change the time one by one to make it in sequence. And Could you tell me which file and statemnet I can directly modify to make it sorting by item name in ASC or DESC?
Thanks.19 September, 2014 at 8:10 pm #5186

no, because that’s not a plugin issue/function/option but down to wordpress
> I found it needs to change the time one by one to make it in sequence.
whats wrong with using the order attribute ? (you can even get there from quickedit)
> And Could you tell me which file and statemnet I can directly modify to make it sorting by item name in ASC or DESC?
as i mentioned, that’s down to wordpress, but – in any case – there are plugins that let you also do a simple drag and drop
this one does a fine job in my experience:https://wordpress.org/plugins/intuitive-custom-post-order/19 September, 2014 at 8:11 pm #5187
ps: dont ever hack any core files (unless they are specifically designed to be edited by – usually – copying them elsewhere and edit those copies).
you will never be able to update anything anymore without loosing all your changes
thats what filters and actions are for22 September, 2014 at 11:38 am #5194
>Thanks a lot, and I will have a try.
by all means of course, but if you give me a couple more days (just testing an additional option to make sure nothing else breaks) i’ll release an update and show you how you could set this up with your original requirements26 September, 2014 at 12:03 pm #5347
