WP Related Items (WRI)

WP Related Items plugin makes visible every kind of hidden connections of your site for your business.

Would you like to offer some related products to your blog posts? Do you need offer up-sell or cross-sell products? Do you have an event calendar plugin, and want to suggest some programs connected to an article? Do you have a custom movie catalog plugin and want to associate some articles to your movies?

Using cross relationship management functions, WRI makes it possible to associate a post, page, or other custom post type to other posts, pages or custom post types, ensures widely configurable relatedness settings, sophisticated cross-relation adjustments. WRI uses the most popular YARPP relationship handling plugin in the background, extending its functionality, retaining its advantages.

WRI combines automatic, manual and common categorization based relationship management. Some functions are available in the PRO version.

You can set attributes that define how to display different type of related items for every reference item type. Such a matrix-like way you can specify all necessary variations of display settings.

Configuration options

You can chose which post types would like to use (e.g. posts, product, pages). You can set separately how different type of related items should be displayed for PAGEs, POSTs or for CUSTOM POST TYPEs (e.g. for PRODUCTs or EVENTs). Position, order of blocks, order of related items, match threshold, number of displayed related items limit, format (list or widgets), custom templates can be configured for each reference post types – related post type pair in the matrix. This is very important, because every post type has specific features you would like to be treated. Related items can be displayed right after the reference item, or on sidebar widgets.

PRO version

Cross taxonomies can be used to increase similarities using common categorization between different post types. For example, you can switch on WordPress standard post categories for products, so the post category assignment option appears not only on post edit page but on products admin page also. In this way, different post types can be in the same category, increasing the similarity rates between them.

Manual assignment of items is possible. This way you can define explicit relationship between different items (e.g. assign some product to a post or two related posts to each other)
