Dear YooRecipe Users,

I am pleased to announce that a new version of YooRecipe is ready. I cannot resist presenting you the main new features any longer.

Module positions

Some of you requested us to add module positions to YooRecipe (especially for adsense integration). It is now possible displaying module of any type using YooRecipe proprietary module positions: yoorecipe-after-title, yoorecipe-after-reviews, yoorecipe-before-directions, yoorecipe-after-subcategories

Large upload files

We increased the max upload file size to 7MB in YooRecipe. Well. Please keep in mind that the main limitation now comes from your PHP config.Check your php.ini config file. upload_max_filesize = 8M if you plan using large files uploads.

Reviews vs comments

YooRecipe supports reviews. We therefore updated the code and labels to make a clear distinction between these 2 terms. YooRecipe will integrate with commenting solutions lateron.

Important: Please double check your Reviews settings in Component Options have been correctly kept AND SAVE THEM. To keep the story short, component settings have been renamed and need to be saved in database.

Paginated search results

It speaks for itself.

Dear YooRecipe users,

I am glad to announce that we slowly cooked a new bug fix release, thanks to all feedbacks your provided in forum.

Go on reading to discover the release notes.

Dear YooRecipe users, I am pleased to announce that version 3.8.2 is out! You are more than encouraged to update as this release fixes several bugs.

New thumbnails options


Options have been added in Component Settings. You can now set the dimensions your categories and recipes will be resized to.

Important. Please set values you want immediately after having updated, it will save some CPU time and avoid weird thumbnails from being generated

Note for large pictures sites owners: Our tip is to set large dimensions in Recipe edition tab. By doing so, YooRecipe will keep large pictures at upload time and will be able to generate nice thumbnails, especially if the thumbnails you want to use are big. Hope I am making sense.

Bugs fixed

  • Shopping list button not displayed in navbar if 'use shopping list' param set to off
  • Recipe picture correctly displayed in validation email sent to admin
  • Fixed PHP warning in search results
  • FB Like button used bad formatted URL upon special circumstances
  • Important SQL script not run for users who jumped from 3.7.x to 3.8.1, fixes the 'No ingredient' bug
  • Mostpopular layout could not be found


  • Added option to resize picture on image upload or not
  • Added options to specify thumbnails dimensions in recipes and recipe page
  • Added options to specify thumbnails dimensions of recipe categories
