    In a pizza menu, I have several different prices for different size pizzas. Also there are multiple prices for some of the appetizers by quantity.

    I’m not seeing an easy way to add different prices into the one price section. Do I have to go to a wppizza-type plugin to get this functionality?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Karen,

    Great question. What most people do is just enter multiple prices into the price field. Like in the Nigiri section of the demo’s menu (http://demo.organizedthemes.com/umami/menu/) there are multiple prices that have been separated by inserting a “|” between them. That’s the simplest way to go about it. It’s also how most pizza places have handled their menus.

    If you have any questions, just let me know.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    If you have lots of prices, you could always place them in the description. There’s a plugin called Advanced Excerpt (https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-excerpt/) that lets you add in HTML to the excerpt field — the food item description is an excerpt.

    With the plugin you could add in a line break using this:


    (See support site to view break.)

    That would let you create a new line or lines for your pricing. With lots of prices and sizes that will be easier to read than stuffing them on the line with the item name too.

    See if that will work for you and let me know if I can help.

    Take care,
    Bill

    Funny thing – that works great for the Description/Excerpt in individual Food Items, but not the Description field in Menu Groups. Any thoughts on why that might be?

    Good follow up. Taxonomy descriptions (menu group, staff group, post categories and so on) also don’t allow HTML in by default. You can alter that via a separate plugin called Allow HTML in Category Descriptions (https://wordpress.org/plugins/allow-html-in-category-descriptions/). Once it’s activated, you should be able to use HTML there as well.
