[resolved] "Edit Related Posts" Removed? (20 posts)

    I notice that in the changelog for version 2.6.1 it reads, 'Removed "edit related posts"'. Is there a reason this feature was removed? One of my users really liked that feature and asked where it disappeared to. Any chance it will come back in the future?

    Hey!

    We are sorry about this button removal, but we initially thought that it won't have such a big impact on our users behavior, as we later figured out. We are already discussing on bringing it back in one of our future updates, so please bear with us until then (shouldn't take us too long, though).

    Once again — sorry for this move we made and please bear with us until we bring it back! I'm sure it'll be soon! :) You're feedback is -as always- very much appreciated!

    Take care & have a nice day!

    Best,
    Silvo

    Hey @jklapel!

    We just wanted to let you know that we have brought back the 'Edit Related Posts' button with our latest plugin version. You should be able to see it under your blogposts, after you update it in your WordPress's Dashboard.

    Also — we are very interested in how and why you chose to use Edit Related Posts. Would it be possible to have a quick Skype call one of these days? We'd just like to ask some very general questions about your use and it won't take too much of your time. Any feedback is more than appreciated!

    Here's where you can reach me: support@zemanta.com

    Thanks & I'm looking forward to your reply!

    Best,
    Silvo

    Hey, what if I don't want to see it there, what do I do?

    Hey @gabrieldilaurentis, that button is only visible to the admins of the blog in question and not to the visitors. So in order to avoid it, simply log out from your WP.org Dashboard, and the button shall be gone.

    Let me know how this works for you or if you have any more questions — I'm here to help!

    Take care & have a nice Sunday!

    I can't find wp_rp_footer or wp_rp_edit class for this button. In what file you set these classes? I want to change the orage color of the button.

    Hey!

    Correct me if I'm mistaken, but if I understood you right, you would like to change the color of the 'Edit Related Posts' button? You are aware that this button only shows up to the admins and super-users of the blog in question, right?

    The reason why you cannot find those classes is because they are located on our Cloudfront servers, but you can override them via the CSS code in your plugin settings.

    Let me know how it goes or if you have any other questions — we're here to help!

    Take care & have a nice day!

    Hey, glad to hear that, really! :)

    Any chance you could share with us how you did this, just if somebody else is also looking for a similar solution?

    It would be much appreciated! Thanks and have a nice rest of the day!

    I'd like to modify the background colour of the button. I realise it is only visible to admins though I find it kinda distracting to the aesthetic of my page and I am always logged in. I really like the feature, so want to keep it there, though plan on making the button white (so it is essentially invisible though still functional).
    I tried doing this in the custom CSS box, though nothing I entered worked. How do I overwrite the default style? Thanks.

    Try adding !important; to your css

    Find in wp_related_posts.php the line

    $posts_footer .= '<div class="wp_rp_footer"><a class="wp_rp_edit" href="#" id="wp_rp_edit_related_posts">Edit Related Posts</a></div>';

    and replace with this one

    $posts_footer .= '<br/><br/><a class="relPost2" href="#" id="wp_rp_edit_related_posts">Edit Related Posts</a><br/><br/>';

    You have now to create the class relPost2 in your CSS file.
    This is how I created:

    /* Related Post
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    
    .relPost2 {
        color: #fff;
        background: #2b883d;
        padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;
        margin-bottom: 25px;
        font-size: 12px;
        font-weight: normal;
        text-decoration: none;
    }
    
    a.relPost2:hover {
        color: #000;
    }

    You can customize the code for your need.

    Yes, thanks. All went fine. I managed to re-style the button to make it more discreet.

    Even if I'm a guest I still can see the "Edit Related Posts" button. Please see it in my site

    Hey @bingyang, try to visit one of your blog posts after you log out from your WP Dashboard, but after you have cleared your browsing data (cache) and restarted your browser. Or else that button might have stayed in your cache, which is why you (and only you, from that particular browser) are still seeing it.

    Or just switch to another browser (the one you are not using that much). :)

    Anyways, do let me know how it goes or if the problem persists — I'll do my best to help you out! Take care & have a nice day!

    Any chance of making the code change (as per McCosmin's suggestion) in a future release? Every time I update I have to edit the code again.

    Hey, thanks for reaching out again & sorry for my super-delayed reply! Won't happen again!

    As for your inquiry — well, since this button is only appearing to the admins of the blog and not to the readers/visitors as well, we don't find it quite that important to make it customizable. We are currently focusing on problems that more oriented to the end-user, which are the readers/visitors.

    Hope you understand the position we're in, but we have some more important task ahead of us.

    But please do let me know if I could be of any other help, since we always like to hear your feedback. We truly appreciate it!

    Take care & have a nice weekend ahead!

    Best,
    Silvo
