[resolved] [Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] Shortcodes? (7 posts)

    Is there any plan to adopt shortcodes into this plugin? It would be nice to specify when and where I want related posts.

    Sorry, shortcode support is not planned.

    Mitcho,

    thanks for this great plugin.

    I do miss the shortcode feature that has been abandoned.
    I would love to place "related posts" where I want them to be, depending on length of articles and maybe sometimes "above the fold" to get more reader interaction and reduce bounce rates, which is beneficial for SEO if you use Google analytics.

    So I would like to bring this topic back up since you have added the very useful "noyarpp" shortcode in the latest version.

    Could you please reconsider your decision and re-introduce the short code feature?

    Answer very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Regards,

    Thomas

    @wp-fan I don't think there ever was a shortcode. It's something that is difficult for technical reasons (having to do with how the content is filtered in order to get the keywords to compute related posts, and not producing infinite loops) but it's something I may revisit soon. Thanks.

    @capson have you tried that with YARPP? I'd be surprised if it didn't have ill effects.
