Zip Recipes, some changes coming up!

Some changes coming up for Zip Recipes users! Really Simple Plugins has taken over development and support of Zip Recipes from Gezim. Really Simple Plugins is a small plugin development company consisting of three developers. If you have added SSL to your site you might have encountered us before: we’ve also developed Really Simple SSL, currently the largest plugin to get your site easily on SSL. We’re also currently working on Complianz GDPR, a GDPR and CCPA plugin which handles privacy requirements for US and EU, and for Canada as of later this year.

Of course I also have ideas about what this great plugin can do. So there will also be changes 🙂 The changes you will be seeing in the short term:

  • I will start adding a licensing system to the premium plugins, so users can easily update from the back-end.
  • The current Gutenberg implementation will be adjusted to make more effective use of the wysiwyg possibilities Gutenberg offers
  • Translations will be extended to more languages
  • Conversion between US and Metric measurement systems will be added

A lot more is coming, but I’m hoping for your input as well! If you have any ideas or suggestions for improvements, let me know!


If your license is activated, you should be able to update from the WordPress plugins dashboard. If this doesn’t work, there’s probably a configuration issue on your server. We’ve listed several of the most common causes.

Sure! Just go to your account, then click “view licenses”, then “view upgrade”. There you have options to pay the additional amount.

The download link you received in the initial e-mail is valid for 24 hours. After the link has expired you can log in to your ZIP Recipes account to download the plugin again. When logged in to your account you will see a section “your purchases”. 

Clicking on the ‘View Details and Downloads’ button will take you to a new page. On this new page scroll down to locate the ‘Products’ section. In the products section you can click on the plugin hyperlink to download the plugin.

To install the plugin, you can follow these instructions on Really Simple SSL

When you purchase one of our plugins an account is created automatically. You can reset your password here

If you don’t remember the email you used for the purchase, or did the purchase before the automatic account creation was activated, please contact us and we’ll set it up for you. 

You can create a new password via the following link:

When getting a ‘this email is not authorized to renew license’ error, try clearing cookies from your browser. That will likely solve the issue.

If you click the download link after you have purchased a plugin, you should download a zipped file which you can upload to WordPress. If this is not the case, you are probably using Safari. This is easy to fix. Go to:

Safari > Preferences > General > Open “safe” files after downloading: uncheck.
