How to Add the Yum Button to your site

Adding the Yum button:

Blogger

  1. Copy the HTML code shown in the box on this page
  2. Open your Blogger site editor tools & select ‘Template’ from the navigation options
  3. Select the ‘Edit HTML’ button from the Template page
  4. Place your cursor anywhere inside the template HTML then select Command+F to display a Search box.
  5. Enter ‘post-header’ into the Search box and then ‘Return’
  6. Insert the Yum Button HTML code immediately after the </div> following the 'post-header-line-1' section as shown in the screenshot below. There will likely be 2 instances of this post-header code, so make sure to add the Yum button code after both instances.
  7. Select Preview to view the Yum Button is displaying properly and then Save Template.  

Wordpress.org

  1. Open your Wordpress site Editor feature (in the Appearance menu) and locate your post or content php template files
  2. Identify where you would like to position the Yum Button within your recipe page.
  3. Copy & paste  the HTML code for Wordpress.org blogs from here into the appropriate .php file based on where you intend for the Yum Button to appear on your site.
  4. Select Update File and view your blog to verify the Yum Button is displaying properly.

Wordpress.org (Genesis theme):With the Genesis Theme, you can use the Simple Hooks Plugin to easily add the Yum button code to your site. Ellen blogs give a great tutorial on this here: http://ellenblogs.com/how-to-add-just-a-yummly-button-to-your-recipes/

Wordpress.com (non-hosted): If you have a wordpress.com blog, you can add the Yum button within Sharedaddy via Jetpack (the default sharing option).

  1. In your wordpress blog dashboard, go to Settings>>Sharing.
  2. Click "Add a new service" under Available Services.
  3. Fill out the form and click Create Share Button.
  4. Sharing url: http://www.yummly.com/urb/verify?url=%post_url%&title=%post_title%&yumtype=button
  5. Icon url: http://www.yummly.com/favicon.ico
  6. Drag the Yummly button down to Enabled Services.
  7. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

 *Note: The above method does not allow for an image preview when the Yum button is clicked, but the image will show up on the recipe on Yummly once processed.

Squarespace

  1. Grab the Yum button code after selecting the option for 'other'.
  2. Insert the code using a code block on your Squarespage blog by following these steps: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206543167
