Plugin Directory

nrelate Most Popular

The best way to display Popular content: Thumbnails or Text.

What does this plugin do?

The nrelate Most Popular Content plugin monitors your website, and returns a list of your most popular posts.

Can I change the time period for the popular content?

You can choose to show popular content from the last hour, up to 20 years... and anything in between.

Does this plugin slow down my website?

Absolutely not. Since the nrelate servers are doing all the hard work, your website can focus on what it does best... show content.

What are my display choices?

You can show popular content as cool image thumbnails (choose from six image sizes), or simple text with bullets. When choosing thumbnails we will look in your post to find the first image and use that. You can also choose a default image to show when your post contains none. In the plugin options page you can enter your default image url. If your post has no image, and you have not set a default, we will show a random one from our image library.

Is advertising optional?

Yes, you always have the option to display or not display ads.

What ad display options do you offer?

If you sign up for advertising, you will be able to display up to ten advertisements within the plugin. If you have selected the thumbnail view, then thumbnails will show up. If you have selected text links, then text ads will show up. You can show ads either at the front, end, or mixed within your content links. As of version 0.51.0, you can display ads totally separate from your content links as well.

Does nrelate offer a revenue share on ads?

Yes, its your blog, you should be making money on it!

Where do I sign up for ads?

After installing the plugin, you can sign up for advertising here.

Will it look like the rest of my site?

Many of your website styles will automatically be used by the plugin so it will blend in nicely with your website. We do need to set some of our own styles to make it work properly. However, you can makes changes to our styles by including your own CSS in your stylesheet.

I just activated the plugin and I don't see anything, what's up?

Once you activate the plugin, the nrelate server will start monitoring your website. Popular content should show up within two hours.

Can I use your plugin with WordPress Multisite?

Absolutely. You must activate our plugin on each individual website in your Multi-site install. You cannot use "Network Activate".

Does plugin support external images, e.g. uploaded on Flickr?

Absolutely! If you have images in your post, nrelate will find them and auto-create thumbnails.

Does nrelate work with WordPress "Post Thumbnails"?

Yes, our plugin automatically detects if you are using post thumbnails.

Does nrelate work if I use custom fields for my images?

Yes. Just go to our settings page, and fill in the name of the custom field you use.

How does the nrelate plugin get my website content?

Our plugin creates an additional nrelate specific RSS feed. We use this feed so that we don't run into issues if your regular RSS feed is set to "Summary" or if you use a service like Feedburner.

What is in the nrelate specific RSS feed and how is it used?

The nrelate specific RSS feed is very similar to your standard RSS feed if you set it to full feed. Since we had some users that had their feed to just show a summary and others that used Feedburner, we set this up. The nrelate specific feed can only be accessed by using a random key that is generated upon install. To make sure this feed is not used for other purposes, we hired WordPress lead developer and security expert, Mark Jaquith, to build it for us.

How does nrelate know when new content is published?

When you activate an nrelate plugin, our Pinghost is automatically added to your list of Update Services, so we are automatically notified when you publish a new post. This allows us to index your new content quickly. You can learn more about the WordPress Update Services at the WordPress Codex.

My website is not in English, will nrelate work?

Our plugin will work on websites in the following languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. If you do not see your language on the list or you think that we could improve the relevancy of our plugin in your language, please contact us and we will work with you to configure the plugin accordingly.

What is nRelates relationship with comScore?

As of May 10, 2013, nRelate is working with comScore, a leading web measurement firm, to collect and provide network statistics on nRelate's network of sites. By using or continuing to use nRelate you authorize nRelate to make a call to comScore for measuring your site and traffic. comScore is used by tens of thousands of publishers, ad networks, and widget providers for analysis and reporting. It is very likely given their coverage your site already uses a service that partners with them in the same way nRelate is. For any questions about this, please feel free to contact our support team (support@nrelate.com) and reference our privacy policy as well.
