[Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] 3.4 images problem using template
I just upgrade to YARPP 3.4 and have a problem. All the images for related are from my latest post. I haven’t publish anything else, so I don’t know if it uses the latest post or it just picked the latest post image available when I upgrade.
I use a template and I have specified a custom image for the posts that does not have one.
Before all images where correct and if a post does not have image, the specified one showed up.
Now the complete site shows the image of my latest post.
How can I fix this ?
Can you send me a link? Also, what YARPP template file are you using?
I am using a custom template, if you want I can mail you everything.
I deleted the txt files timthumb created and now not a single post have related posts. I changed from 5 to 1 the threshold and some came back, then tried 5 again and nothing, none has related posts.
Please do email me. email@example.com, x=mitcho.
Mitcho .. Even I’ve got the same problem on by blog [ see here ] ..Its the same on all single post pages.
where after the update to YARPP 3.4.The first images are not display..but only the default image is displayed.
I’am using a custom template.
Can I also send you my custom template code file .
Mitcho – Same thing with me, happened right after the update. I’ve tried tweaking a few things and am having several problems: (1) Only one image will show for all posts, (2) Can get no more than 2 related posts to appear, and (3) Now the same 2 related posts appear on everything.
I’ve tried with a custom template and the standard YARPP settings…both with no luck.
@avil, please send me your template too. But what is the issue… you lost your related posts? or that they don’t display their correct thumbnails?
I just upgraded to 3.4 and ran into some problems with custom templates that sound similar to yours. “Automatic display” and widget seem to be working fine, if I’m not using a custom template.
First of all, my custom template which worked perfectly with all previous versions is no longer working (at all):
Second, I tried using the default yarpp-template-list.php bundled with YARPP 3.4, and with 20 related posts it returned the same two posts, over and over again (or to be more precise, 19 times one post, and 1 time another post, on every page).
@mitcho – The related posts are missing and the images are lost on all posts where only the default image is displayed.Sent you my template.
@chadrew: “Second, I tried using the default yarpp-template-list.php bundled with YARPP 3.4, and with 20 related posts it returned the same two posts, over and over again (or to be more precise, 19 times one post, and 1 time another post, on every page).” Does this happen when you turn off the custom template?
@mitcho that seems to happen whenever I call
<?php related_posts(); ?>manually, regardless if with custom template or not. I guess this problem is not related to custom templates after all.
“Automatically display related posts”: everything’s fine (even when using the default custom template).
Widget: everything’s fine, likewise.
<?php related_posts(); ?>manually: the problem of same post appearing as described above.
Mitcho – I keep trying to tweak settings but am having the same trouble as chadrew. I am getting the same four ‘related posts’ for everything, even when not related in any way. I have turned off the custom template and still have no luck. I am just going to turn off YARPP until this gets resolved.
On an unrelated note, I solved the trouble with my custom template by adding
global $post;to it. I’m not sure why that’s needed since the template seems to have its own loop, but I’m not a programmer so I can’t say 🙂
@chadrew can you please share more about that ?
Add it where ? how ? etc…
chadrew – any chance you would be willing to send your custom.php to me? I can’t get mine working.
