The component keeps evolving and it's updaded. They also listen to user's suggestions.
They also offer some pretty quick and reliable support on their forum. I needed a couple of bug fixes and solutions were offered immediately.
They only negative I could say, is that they don't offer a customisation service, and they only give some general suggestion when you wanto to do something that invovles hacking the code. But again that's not something that they have to do or that they are required to do.
Great component and great service all around!
I will never use another recipe component, and will look into other extensions that they offer as well.
For 2014, they seem to have a nice roadmap and cool features like shopping list and timer will be developed as they said on forum.
Did you post on forum?
I recently accumulated some late work due to a terrible event that prevented me from working during almost a month. Which can explain why support has not been as fast as usual.
That being said, we encourage you to report the difficulties or compatibility problems you encounter using YooRecipe and third components.
Keeping up with improvements of thid party extensions is a tough work. I recognize not having enough time to test all sh404SEF or xmap new versions.
Your contribution on forum would really help us promoting the open source spirit we defend. Our source code is not encrypted.
As for forum limitations, we already contacted Jpayplans editors to ask them a more fine-grained access control between subscriptions and forum to satisfy our users expectations.
It is always time to use YooRecipe! ;)
Sylvain, YooRecipe founder.
The developer seems very committed and good hearted, and major bugs and issues, in my experience, have always been dealt with quickly and professionally but support for issues that aren't major bugs can sometimes be sporadic and lack even an acknowledgement for long periods of time and sometimes never. A quick acknowledgement of an issue or a support post is something that can easily be improved on (minor quip but one easily rectified).
Hope that this extension gets the extra functionality it needs soon and hope to continue to be able to use yoorecipe long into the future.
I am very sorry you reported such a bad experience using YooRecipe.
For your information, I started a complete redesign of the way ingredients are managed. This main improvement should be available within Christmas.
Concerning forum restriction, we use jpayplans and asked this component editor to bring evolutions regarding forum access control.
As for the lack of support in November & December, I had to burry a child and have not been able to work as usual. This is not an excuse, but I did my very best in this special circumstances.

Tested on Joomla 3.1, selection of ingredient is regressing and tag system from Joomla 3 is not integrated. You have separated keywords to be re-entered for each recipe instead of ticking existing tags from the base.
This is nevertheless good enough to expect better integration with Joomla 3 is future.
I use this extension for family share of recipes despite of the high pricing.
I recommend purchasing minimum package for that purpose.
A lot of work has obviously been put into this package and it shows. The response from support is very good and they listen to what you say.
The product is exremely easy to work with and I am looking forward to building my site with it. Highly recommend this software. Good value for money.
And the modules are constantly updated, nice with developers who strive forward.
Thanks for a great product!
There are a LOT of nice features such as the possibility to drag a slider to increase the amount of ingredients (!), add to favourites, comments, ratings, social sharing and much more.
As a bonus this component also has a plugin to interact with CB, which I also use on the site.
The support is great and you get your answers fast. The development team has made a great job, and that product is well worth the money. Thank you!!
We bought this extension alongwith related modules and though we had some issues in the beginning, the support was simply great. The guys, instead of making excuses, worked with me, answered all my questions, and helped resolve the issues that were critical to us.
In the end, after the minor tweaks, the recipe component is working exactly just the way we wanted.
We had nearly 300 recipes in plain html format and converting them to the YooRecipe format was/is a tedious process doing one recipe at a time but the result is very eye-pleasing and dynamic.
With frequent improvements and upgrades, this is by far the most useful and interesting component in its category.
So in nutshell, while it may not be up to your expectations straight out of the box, with some tweaking and patience, you can customize it to suit your needs. I for one am a very happy camper.
