    If you’re using a popular posts plugin, try referring to the plugin’s documentation.

    But, I am still having trouble figuring out how to fix my related posts. They still show some older posts. Is there some way to set an expiry date for related posts so, for example, if I write about a certain event, that post doesn’t show up after the event is over? If not, would be a great plugin!
