    Hello, I would like to know how to make a website like Supercook ? The point of those sites are you put the ingredients you have and they show you what you can cook with them. I would like to have something similar. Is it hard to make? Could I do it with only Wordpress? If programming is involve in this, how much would it cost me to get site like this?

    At no point did you say that you didn't have programming skills in your original post.

    But hey, fuck you too.

    "If programming is involve in this, how much would it cost me to get site like this?" I guess I hoped someone will understand. And why are you cursing? I didn't intend to anger you...

    Wp has a great recipe plugin for that. You can label recipes by ingredients.

    That is a good site; a little busy looking but pretty cool in what they offer.

    I don't believe it is responsive though as it would not work (drag and drop feature) on either my iPad or my wife's IPad Pro. To me that would be a huge benefit as she uses hers in the kitchen fairly often.

    Great concept.

    Yeah, I'm thinking to use this concept on non food niche.

    These plugins you both pointed doesn't seem to do the job... I mean that visitors would be able to search recipes by choosing the ingredients you have.

    There no way you can just get a plugin and get rich your have to leatn html and css and thrn php .

    You can try the theme way but it been so satuated i dont think there much sucesss .

    You also need to understand and do seo onpage and off page .

    Your better off hitting the learning curve or
    Go to the freelance section on this forum.

    I don't really care much about success, for starters I want to make website like that. Then I will worry about SEO. My idea has a twist, really tight niche.

    well that was the nearest i could find, you could go to hire a freelancer and have a custom site built but it will be expensive. The market you want to enter is tough and dominated by big players with bigger budgets than you.

    True... I wonder how much a simple version like that would cost...

    another approach you could do is to have a recipe site and build a readership, sort of test the water a bit then if you feel confident that it would work then look at something like that
