First of all, thanks and congratulations on a very nice and useful plugin.
We’ve bought a licence for the Ingredients plugin to test and it works really well.
There is one thing though: In the case where some meals are available as, for example, “Entrées” AND “Main Course” (meal sizes) and some are only available as one OR the other, but they are all customizable with the same ingredients, how can we assign these three cases to the ingredients in the admin page?
I hope my question is clear, maybe there’s an option I’ve overlooked, but I can’t seem to find a way without duplicating ingredients, which is really counterproductive, I
think you’ll agree…

first of all, i wouldn’t call it counterproductive. cumbersome perhaps….(but then again, you’ll only have to do it once)
secondly, i understand what you are saying, but there’s no way to do that without severely restricting the flexibility of the plugin. It might be the case in your situation, that you have the same ingredients for a multitude of different meals/sizes, but that does not mean it’s the same for everybody. so, sorry, but you will have to duplicate the ingredients.
Essentially, you are assigning a set of ingredients to a mealsize group which in turn you can assigne to any/all meals within that group. If one were to do it the other way round somewhat, one would have to list all your ingredients under every meal/menu item and select them there individually, set prices etc etc , which I would think you’ll agree would be a lot more work. (never mind the fact, if you decide that you do not have an ingredient anymore or the price changes , you would have to do that for every menu item it is being used instead of just editing it once as appropriate in the ingredient section….
there are a couple more reasons why it is the way it is, but I’m not going to bore you senseless (unless you want me to 🙂9 July, 2013 at 12:50 pm #3603Denis
Thank you very much for a quick response! (Two quick responses actually 😉 )
You’re quite right, the alternative would require a serious amount of work…
