[resolved] [Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] Yarpp showing same post (48 posts)

    Hello. Just installed the yarp plugin, yet another related posts plugin, and am using it in conjunction with the related posts slider plugin. For some reason yarp is only showing the same post as a related post. For example, if the post is "do it yourself garden" the yarp plugin only shows that specific post in the slider, no other posts. Anyone have this issue or know why it's happening? I tried moving the threshold up and down, but made no difference. Thanks.

    @40cooper hmm, that's odd, if it's happening *everywhere*... it's possible that that really is because that's the only one pulled up by YARPP... in that case, try lowering your "match threshold" in YARPP options and see if that helps.

    Are there any posts which say "no related posts"?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I lowered it to 3 and then down to 1 and it made no difference, still only showed one post, the same post it's in. I then decided to disable the related posts slider plugin and just use yarpp and that took care of it. Seems to be working beautiful now. Too bad, I really liked the looks of the slider in conjunction with yarpp. But yarpp seems to be the most intelligent related posts plugin I've found so far. Very pleased with it. Thanks for the help.

    Change setting for match and it works!

    I have the same issue--YARPP suddenly stopped showing <i>any</i> related posts (it used to work fine), so I uninstalled it and re-installed it, and now every post has one single related post, of itself. Tweaking the match score doesn't help, and in fact if I look at the pages while logged in as admin (so that the current score shows up), every "match" of the page with itself has a score of 0.

    "change setting for match" - may I ask what you mean by that ?

    These are the parameters of complementarity.

    Thanks, but I still have no idea what to change and where. I tried all the tweaks possible in "settings", nothing seems to work...

    I think they are referring to the threshold settings for the yarp plugin. The higher the nuber in this setting the more strict the plugin is at deciding what is considered a related post. Lowering that number should allow more posts to be considered. My problem turned out to apparently be incompatibility with another plugin, the "related posts slider". Once I deactivated that plugin yarp has worked just fine. Are you using yarp with another such plugin?

    nope, no slider; but of course a handful of other plugins are running. I`ll try to deactivate them one at a time and see what happens...

    Thanks a lot

    So, tried deactivating all other plugins - one at a time - still no success, the same post is the only "other relevant" one...

    mitcho -- That problem is different from the one that I'm experiencing, and that it sounds like others on this thread are experiencing. On that thread, it sounds like the related posts shown for each contain duplicates, so that Post X has a related posts list of "Post Y, Post Y, Post Y"; in this thread, the related posts shown are simply the original post itself, so that Post X has a related posts list of "Post X".

    I haven't yet had a chance to downgrade to the last version of YARPP, but I'll hopefully try that tonight and see if that fixes the problem.

    I'm having the same problem with the current post being displayed as the related post and a match score of 0. Uninstalled 3.2, uploaded 3.1.9 and it is working fine again.

    Yes, this looks like a different issue than the one you mentioned above, mitcho.

    With 3.2, YARPP only shows the current post being displayed as the related post.

    I've changed the Match Threshold from 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1, and still, it only shows the current post as the related post.

    Just like delapuravida, I uninstalled 3.2, uploaded 3.19, and it's working again.

    I'm seeing the same issue on my blog after upgrading to 3.2 - all posts are only linking to themselves with a score of 0.

    My problem is slightly different. I have a multilingual site and the posts only display properly for my primary language (English), but not the secondary language.
    After running &action=flush it works well, but only for one instance and after refreshing my page just one time the related posts are messed up, as the ones showed are not related and do not match the values I set in YARPP settings.
    So everything is fine for first language, but only work for secondary language after changing the settings, but only for the first load of the article.
    I updated to the latest version, but it didn't change anything.
    Also the related posts displaying in the Edit Post window are correct, but in the actual post those are not the ones that are displayed.
    Any help?

    Ah, I understand now. Thanks all for clarifying. You're all seeing this "self-relating with match score of 0" on your site itself, not in the admin side, right? Does it occur on every post? Does it matter if the post has revisions or not?

    Could someone make a mysql dump of their yarpp_related_cache table and email it to me at yarpp@mitcho.com, referencing this forum thread? Thank you!

    Yes, mitcho, the "self-relating with match score of 0" appears on the site itself, not the admin side.

    And yes, it occurs on every post.

    I checked, and it doesn't matter whether or not the post has revisions; every post is always self-relating with a match score of 0.

    I'd be glad to send you a mysql dump of the yarpp_related_cache table, but I'm not quite sure how to do it. Do you need a file already inside the yet-another-related-posts-plugin directory?

    Or is this something I need to manually generate?

    I'm having the very same issue. Is there a fix on the horizon?

    I'd like to step back to the older version of the plugin until this is fixed but not sure how?

    Hi Mitcho,

    I have the issue but only on my website online.
    It's working fine on my localhost, I know I have the same database BUT with no posts revisions :)

    This must be the only difference. Is there a way to download the previous version 3.1.9 ? I could'nt find it on your website.

    Thanks for your help :)

    @andyrathbone you'll have to use a tool like phpmyadmin to get this database dump.

    @kazes Thanks for that information... very helpful... though I still haven't been able to reproduce this.

    Here's where you can get previous versions:

    @mitcho I opened up phpmyadmin and e-mailed you a mysql dump of the yarpp_related_cache table both for v3.1.9 and v3.2. Hope it helps.
