Creating a recipe with complete details is highly beneficial for culinary websites. In the previous posts of this series, we’ve gone through some ways to create a recipe page using page builders. In today's practice, we're going to find out how to do it with another page builder: Kadence.

This is the page for showing a recipe that I created as an example:

This is a singular page for showing a recipe

Video Version

Before Getting Started

This page is a single page that contains all the recipe information such as time, ingredients and so on, that will be saved in custom fields. Each recipe is saved in a post of a custom post type. So, we need Meta Box core plugin to have a framework for creating a custom post type and custom fields for it. It’s free and you can download it directly from wordpress.org.

For the advanced features from Meta Box, we need some of its extensions:

You can install them individually or just use Meta Box AIO.

For the last one, we use Kadence to build the page. Remember to update to the latest version to have full integration with Meta Box.

Create a New Custom Post Type

Go to Meta Box > Post Types > Add New.

Go to Meta Box and create new post type for recipe

After publishing, you will see a new menu displayed. It's your post type.

Create Custom Fields

Go to Meta Box > Custom Fields to create fields. These are the fields that I created:

Go to Meta Box to create fields to save the recipe information

There is a special field for the video. Instead of using the URL field, I recommend you use the oEmbed. We can display the video preview right on the front end thanks to this field type.

After creating all the fields, move to the Settings tabs, choose Location as Post Type and select Recipe to apply these fields to this post type.

Go to Settings, choose Location as Post Type and select Recipe to apply these fields to this post type

When creating a new post in Recipes, you’ll see all the created custom fields.

Just fill in some information.

Create a Template for the Page

Go to Appearance > Kadence > Elements > Add New to create a template for the recipe page.

Create a template with Kadence for the recipe page.

Settings for the Template

Choose the element type as Template.

Display Recipe Information

For the recipe name information, add a Heading block.

For the recipe name information, add a Heading block.

Then, add Dynamic data from the Post Title to display the recipe name.

Add data from the Post Title to display the recipe name.

I have two sections for the recipe information.

For this first section, there are 2 columns to show the image and the time information like this.

Show the image and the timing information

So, add a Row Layout block and choose the layout you want.

In the first column, add an Advanced Image block to display the dish image.

Turn on Enable Dynamic Image setting for the block to get images from custom fields. And, choose the Featured Image from the dropdown list.

Turn on Enable Dynamic Image setting and choose the Featured Image

Move to the second column to add the timing information.

Each couple of lines like these will be a group. So, add a Group block for the first one.

Add a Group block

Inside the Group, add a Paragraph block to show the time information.

add a Paragraph block to show the time information.

The timing information is saved in custom fields, so add dynamic data to the block as well, and choose the corresponding field to get the right data.

The next 3 groups are the same as the timing group, we just change the text and field of the element. Then, you will get the right ones.

Change the text and field of the element

In the next section, just add a Section block to cover each one.

Add a Heading inside it and type the name of the next information.

After that, insert a Paragraph. Click on the Dynamic button, choose Post Custom Field, and select the wanted field from the list.

Click on the Dynamic button, choose Post Custom Field

All the sections are quite the same, so just clone the created section, change the heading, and change the field as well. The information will be obtained and displayed correctly step by step.

But there is a difference in the Video section. Because the video is saved as an URL in a custom field as oEmbed, we should replace the Paragraph block with a different one.

To display the video preview from the URL, simply use the Dynamic HTML block.

To display the video preview from the URL, simply use the Dynamic HTML block.

Go to the HTML Content setting, choose Post Custom Field, and choose the name of the field that you saved the video.

We’ve done getting all the information about the recipe.

Style the Page

For styling, go back to the page editor with Kadence. Then, choose each component and change the settings to style them. Or in the case you want to use some CSS, just add classes for them then add CSS code.

This is how my page in the final look.
