WordPress Build: Setting Up A Food Blog Site

In WordPress Build, we give you guys a virtual build of a WordPress site that’s centered around a particular theme.

Food Website Build v1.0:


We have an group of about 1-4 employees. We plan on creating a website that’ll sell a variety of food related products and give reviews on local restaurants.


For our theme, we’ll be using  the “Good Food – Recipe Magazine & Food Blogging Theme” .

Plugins Used:

WooCommerence- We plan on selling recipes, prepackaged meals, and cooking video tutorials.

Mail Chimp- We plan to send Newsletters to our clients.

Contact Form -We want to adda more traditional method (outside of  social media ) for users to contact us.

Jetpack- We want to optimize our site.

Akismet –  Integrity is important , so we want to remove any fake comments or spam.

Social Media Widget- We want to show potential client’s that we have a good rapport with our current client base.

WP Google Maps- We need to let our readers know the approximate location of the restaurant we are reviewing.

Yoast SEO – We want our pages to have a good ranking on search engine sites.

Honorable Mention Plugins:

WP SMUSH PRO & W3 Total Cache-Chances are that readers of food blogs are impatient and “hangry” , so the page should have a good load time. (Some web servers disallow W3 Total Cache, but hopefully yours won’t).

Time to setup: A few hours (less if you use the child theme)

Level of difficulty:  Medium

Cost: $59.00 (USD) to 49.75 (EUR)
