[resolved] Can't see options to set "relatedness" (12 posts)

    Like it says in the title. All I see in my admin area under Settings->Related Posts (YARPP), are two panels - "Display options for your website" and "Display options for RSS". That's it. No way to include/exclude categories, no "Relatedness" options.

    I even watched some videos on YouTube to check if I'm looking in the right place, and I'm sure I am.

    What am I doing wrong?

    ps. plugin version 3.3.1, WordPress 3.2.1

    Don't feel like a noob. Thats a really unintuitive default layout. in my opinion, all the screens should be displayed by default.

    The vast majority of users don't use those controls, so I decided to hide them starting in 3.3. Hiding the advanced controls by default gives me the best of both worlds: advanced users who know about them can show them, but new users will be less overwhelmed by the options screen.

    Ok, but in that case I think it would help new useres a lot, if it was at list explicitly said how to access those hidden options in readme.txt file.

    @alex27 there is a note in the readme.

    @geoff128, please try this latest dev version: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/yet-another-related-posts-plugin.zip . Let me know if that works.
