I just installed Zemanta Related posts plugins, and so far it seems terrific. Except that... it seems I have no possibility to vary the number of related posts. For instance if I set the number to 5 in the admin interface, then every post in my blog will have 5 related posts, no matter what. Well, on some posts I want to select only 2, and others 4. Why can't I just decide which related posts should appear?
I tried to do that with the edit related posts interface, and then select only 2 posts to drag and drop in the boxes. So 3 boxes remain empty. But after I save, the 3 remaining boxes receive forced related posts that I haven't chosen.
Do this look like a bug, or something I can't do anything about? If I can't do anything about it, I will not continue with Zemanta as I want to have full control on my related content. One of the reason I need this control: my titles in WP use a lot of word games in French, so the related content that appears automatically usually has no relevance at all.
You can check a page like http://noubel.fr/questions-parfumees/ . Only the first 2 related posts have relevance. Not the last 3 "forced" ones.
Also, I think it would really help if we could pick up the related content BEFORE we publish, i.e in the edit interface, with the freedom not to add any related posts when we don't feel like it. Would this make sense?
Thanks for your support!
