[resolved] Anyone know a Related Pages Widget? (8 posts)

    I have a WP setup as an e-commerce site, and each product becomes its own page. I was hoping to set up an area in the sidebar that would pull up other products that are related.

    I started doing some googling about related pages widgets, but only find related Posts widgets. A handful had the option of including pages, but all three plugins I tried that had that feature don't show up at all in my sidebar. (Other widgets all work fine).

    Does anyone know of a plugin that will post a short list of Related Pages in your sidebar?

    My site: http://www.psychreview.net

    Thanks!

    How do you want to relate the Pages? By custom field? Or something else?

    I was hoping to have it relate pages the same way the "Yet Another Related Posts Plugin" widget does - using Keyword searches in the title and description. Unfortunately that plugin won't show up in my sidebar and I'm not sure why. (I've tried disabling all other plugins and it still doesn't show up).

    At this point tags or categories would work to relate them.

    Pages don't have tags or categories.

    Then what do you suggest?

    Maybe Custom Fields, or a plugin that allows category assignment to pages.

    You may want to check out the plugin WordPress CSS Drop-down Menu, I think that may provide you with an adequate solution.

    http://www.microkid.net/wordpress/related-posts/ works a treat, and relates posts and pages.
