    Many of our newer posts say “no related posts!” on them. Why is this? What determines “related?” Older posts display related posts just fine.

    I figured out the issue: related posts are based on tags, and we kinda quit using tags and went to categories. So many of our newer posts don’t have tags. Since Divi also uses categories for it’s blog module, do you think you could change it to go off of categories instead? Or perhaps and option to select one or the other? Or even just look at categories first, but if no related posts are found, then look at tags?

    Hey!

    Yes, it’s taking the first tag of the current post and shows other posts associated with this tag.. I think tags makes more sense than categories, with that you will have better results. You should be using tags in any case, I heard they can improve SEO but not really sure of that!
    Other plugins are using the same approach, therefore I used it in my plugin.. and yes.. adding an option to select the criteria would be useful but since I’m working full time I rarely find time for this.. I will try to find time though, thanks for your suggestion, I’ll add it to my list.
