LH Jetpack Related Posts

Description

Ever wanted to control the results of Jetpack related posts without delving into code?

Well now you can!

You can not choose the post types that both appear in related post results and that those results appear on. You can also manually override whether related posts appear on any given post or page and in fact manually set the related posts that are displayed.

Features are:

  • Choose the post types that can appear as related posts results (Settings->related posts)
  • Choose the posts types that can have related posts appear on (Settings->related posts)
  • Choose whether any single post, page or CPT will display related post results (under the disable related post meta box in the editor)
  • Manually choose the individual related posts that will appear on any given post, page or CPT. Set under the related posts meta box in the editor
  • Choose a fallback image jetpack will use for related posts if onbe cannot be found in the post/page/cpt

Reviews

Pretty dang good

I hesitated to try this, given the lack of recent updates and ratings. But competing plugins irritated — no way to add/remove certain alleged related posts, etc. JetPack does an excellent job in terms of sparing excess resources, but its version of related differs wildly from mine. So I installed this, and am thrilled with the results. JetPack handles the grunt work in hands-off fashion, so every post gets the related treatment automatically. But I can change past items when convenient. For now, as I add posts, I can make desired changes to the current post on the spot. Best of all worlds. Thus far, I’ve experienced no down side. Thanks dev – well done!
