[resolved] [Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] Related posts in RSS differ from site (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I recently noticed that the related posts listed via RSS differ from the ones listed on my website. In fact, the ones from RSS look more accurate. But the problem is, why is this occurring?

    I'm using YARPP v2.1.6.

    To test this, subscribe to my site at http://iwaruna.com/feed/ and compared what you see in an RSS reader, versus looking at my entries directly on my website. For an example, look at this recent article:

    http://iwaruna.com/2008/12/03/splogger-slimeys/

    The website displays five articles (I'm showing the scores here, fwiw):
    * Poke tweak prod tweak (17.616)
    * Please hold… (16.468)
    * Seeking online gallery software (13.466)
    * Mostly smooth WP 2.2 upgrade (13.326)
    * Upgrading to WordPress 2.2 (13.35)

    But the RSS version shows a different list, the first two actually more accurate in relatedness:
    * The joys of syndication and spam control
    * Comment policy & preview
    * Poke tweak prod tweak

    Let me know what workarounds I could apply, if any. Thanks in advance!

  2. @sairuh - hmm... this is indeed odd. Please confirm that your other options in the display options section are the same: for example the display order and the maximum number of posts. Otherwise, however, it should be using the same algorithm... Hmm...

    Aha, thanks for the sanity check. :-) I needed to set my website display to "high to low relevance" order, which now matches the RSS feed listing.

    Marking as resolved.
