Client came to me having already made a start on his ecommerce website selling cocktail kits using a pre-made theme. The client required the addition of a ‘cocktail recipe database’ to compliment the cocktail kits he is selling which provide more than enough spirits to make their allocated cocktail recipe. Adding a database of recipes that could be made from the base spirit left over in each kit is a good value added feature.
A custom post type was created for the recipe database with three custom taxonomies to sort the recipes. Relevant templates were added to a child theme to cater for the new post type and taxonomies. The search was also customised to only search through the recipes whilst leaving the default search intact. Advanced Custom Fields was used to build a relationship between recipes and products which displayed on each kit product page in WooCommerce.
The site is still being worked on by the client.
