I’ve long been troubled by the lack of any kind of plugin for WordPress which facilitates the conversion of volume to weight. As a cooking and baking enthusiast I find it very difficult to follow many recipes I find online because the measurements for the ingredients are frequently given in units which I am not familiar with at all.
I decided to work on a solution for this, and so now: enter Simple Converter.
What does it do?
Well, simply put, it enables you to convert to and from cups, millilitres, grams, and ounces. Given the nature of measurements in volume, there is no direct conversion ratio. As a result each ingredient must be individually calculated. I have currently included as many common ingredients as I can think of in the plugin, but if you have suggestions for more please let me know by leaving a comment below and I’ll be sure to add them in for the next update.
You can test the plugin in the sidebar of my site to the right, under “Ingredient Converter”, and check out some example screenshots below:
Where can I get it?
You can get it directly from the WordPress plugins repository. Simply click the link below…

How can I support this plugin?
If you like this plugin then you can show your love by selecting the option in the widget to enable the little link back to my site. If you really like the plugin and want to see it grow then you could consider buying me a cup of coffee (via PayPal) or something. Just think – caffeine will help keep me awake while I’m converting and entering all those new ingredients for you! 🙂
Any feedback you might have on the plugin (including ingredient suggestions) would be gratefully received. Please leave any comments below and I’ll reply as soon as I can!
