[Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] 3.4 images problem using template (45 posts)

    I am getting new related posts which are not related in 3.4 version. There are no missing related posts. The 3.3.3 shows accurate related posts which the 3.4 version doesn't. And this test is done by pulling the same post up.

    @johnnyngn if you don't mind going back and forth to help me identify this issue, I'd appreciate it if you emailed me at x@x.com where x=mitcho. Thanks! I would like to resolve this issue.

    In the mean time, the basic issues with custom templates seem to be resolved (in touch with @anothertexasfamily offline), and I hope to push 3.4.1 with these changes soon.

    Regarding relatedness issues: I was only using tags, and now I switched to using only custom taxonomies for "relatedness". The weird thing I noticed is that if I set it to "Require at least one (taxonomy) in common", it still shows posts which do not have the said taxonomy. In fact, posts which do not have a common taxonomy actually have higher match score than posts which do. This might be related to the fact that the post only has one entry in the taxonomy, I'm not sure. (It doesn't bother me too much due to the way I'm using this plugin, anyway).

    Possible bug: for some reason, "Disallow by Tag" shows all tags, but "Disallow by (Taxonomy)" is empty.

    I think I figured out the issue! "Disallow" was not working in 3.4. Please try this version:

    (try link in a few minutes)

    Thanks again for your feedback!

    I'm afraid it still doesn't list custom taxonomies to disallow (tags are fine). It doesn't show the "loading" icon for them either.

    Oh wait, so I'm hearing you describe two issues:
    1. "disallow by (custom taxonomy)" doesn't list any checkboxes
    2. "require at least one (taxonomy) in common" doesn't behave correctly.

    Is that right?

    Yes to both. But regarding the second issue, it might not be important or related to 3.4. I've noticed before that YARPP doesn't pick posts very well when I only use tags for "Relatedness" and the post has few (or especially only one) tag.

    @chandrew, thanks for your continuous updates! I was able to nail down the reason for both of these issues, I believe, and fixed them in 3.4.1b5:

    Awesome! That did it. I can now see all custom taxonomies listed, and related posts are definitely much more accurate. Thank you for such fast fixes.

    I will update this thread after the fix, because its not fixed yet.

    It worked for old posts, but not for new ones.

    All the posts I published after the upgrade, have just 1 related post and its the same one for all.

    All published posts before the update are fine.

    I will go back to 3.3 until next release.

    Thanks for the report @polle001. I've heard this from a few people now and would like to resolve it, but can't reproduce it myself. :/

    @polle001 and others: did 3.4.3 beta 1 help at all? In particular, with 3.4.2, there may be an issue with getting related posts on *new* posts. Does 3.4.3b1 fix that for you?
