Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP)
[Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] How to display related posts ONLY from categories (2 posts)

    I'm trying to do something which I thought might be fairy simple with YARPP but I can't seem to figure it out: I want to only display related post results from my categories. For example, on a site about cars I might have the categories Ford, Toyota, Honda, etc. so if I write a post about the Honda Accord I would like related posts to show up on this post from every other post I assigned to the Honda category. In the YARPP admin section I tried setting "categories" to "consider" and everything else to "do not consider" but that didn't work... I got the "No results found" message. It seems like YARPP will always take into account the post title and text when deciding what related posts to display, which is a cool trick, but kind of overkill for what I need. I'm now wondering if what I'm describing is even possible with this plugin.

    What you did should work... you probably should also lower the "match threshold" to be 1 or so.
