[resolved] [Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] Exclude When In Multiple Categories (2 posts)

    I have a post in two categories - "Sponsored" and "Recipes".

    Because it is a sponsored post, I do not want related posts showing up, so I have YARPP set to exclude all posts in "Sponsored".

    However, this post is also in the "Recipes" category, so related posts are showing up. I need it in the Recipes category, so that it shows up on that page, but I do not want related posts showing up, as it is in the "Sponsored" category as well.

    "Excluding" Sponsored in YARPP's "the pool" options means that anything in "Sponsored" will not show up as a related post.

    For what you want to do, I think you will want some custom code in your theme. Turn off the "automatic display" option in YARPP settings, then call related_posts() in your theme. You'd have to write some code so that you can check that if it's in Sponsored, no matter whatever categories it has, it will call related_posts(). Hope that helps.
