Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP)
[resolved] [Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] YARPP on old posts (7 posts)

    YARRP doesn't seem to find any related posts on my old posts unless I re-save them. I have a lot of old posts, how do i get YARPP to run its algorithm on all of them without having to re-save each one individually. or is there a way to re-save them all in bulk?

    There is a setting that says "Show only posts from the past" and gives you some options

    Could that be limited your posts?

    It's possible that that setting is indeed causing the problem. Visiting a page normally should trigger it to compute the related posts, even for old ones, though. Perhaps you want to try rejiggering the "relatedness" algorithm?

    haven't checked anything in the "show only posts from the past" setting. i guess i was under the impression that the plugin ran its "relatedness" algorithm on the save/update process. but maybe i am just confusing it w/ another plugin. thanks for the replies!

    It does trigger on save/update, but if the plugin was installed after that point, it will also try to calculate it the first time someone visits a page.
