I would like a meal planner plug-in or code for my existing website.
Some other sites that have similar functionality are:
[login to view URL], [login to view URL] & [login to view URL]
I am not looking for a website, I am looking for a plug-in or some coding that will provide the functionality I need. I am using WordPress.
The main goal is for members to select recipes from our database and add it to a pre-set 28 day- meal plan calendar, enabling them to view each day’s menu on a simple dashboard.
I require members to be able to do the following:
• Create meal plans on a 28 day pre-set cycle from our database of recipes.
• Meal plans should also follow the calendar.
• View/edit/reset/print weekly mean plans.
This seems like it could be 1 plugin with multiple functions. I already purchased a recipe plugin (WP Ultimate recipe pro), although I don't know how you could use that to extract the ingredients and info in order to create the meal plan and shopping list.
My site will not revolve solely on the recipes. I have also purchased Yeken weight tracker plugin for users to track their weight and measurements.
For this section I require the following:
• Styling according to the colour scheme of the site
• Summary of important stats (start weight, current and target) to be pulled through and displayed on the main dashboard.
• Remind users of specific weigh in days.
• Synchronised with the meal plan cycle.
I am not looking to spend a ton of money on this project and would like reasonable quotes with suggestions on how to keep the budget very low.
The website is already started and I do not need a website, design work or anything like that. I just need the functionality. If graphics are needed I can provide them to you easily.
Questions you should answer for me:
1. Is the best route to create 1 plugin that does everything or make multiple plugins?
2. Is a plugin the best idea or some other format that could be used on a WordPress site?
3. I also need to know how long a project like this would take.
4. Is it more feasible to modify the plugins I have listed above or for you to code the required features from scratch?
Features that must be included:
1. Create a meal planner tool using recipes from our database.
2. Synchronise meal planner with weight tracker.
3. Creating a user dashboard where important statistics are displayed as follows:
• What day of the pre-set cycle of 28 days the user is on.
• The menu for the day including breakfast, lunch and dinner.
• Weight progress including starting, current and target.
• View/download shopping lists
