  • Tags, Category, Title and it autotags the content.

    It takes the plugin a bit of time to generate related posts because it processes title, content and categories only when you visit the post for the first time.

    So if you have two posts with similar content, try to visit both of them and then check if we correctly link them.

    This is done for performance reasons and shouldn’t be a big issue since your readers will sooner or later visit each of your posts.

    Hope this helps. Best, Jure

    For example: this post has no content

    it has 5 related post – How could those post be related to a post with no content?

    Thanks Jure

    in your case it’s probably matching the category or words in the title.
    But even if it wouldn’t, it falls back to using random posts.

    If you want to modify this behaviour check file wp_related_posts.php lines 87-89(wp_rp_fetch_related_posts_v2 is matching tags, categories, title and content and it behaves the way I described it in the previous post, wp_rp_fetch_related_posts is using only tags and wp_rp_fetch_random_posts returns random posts).

    But you have to keep in mind that your changes will be overwritten on every plugin update.

    Hi Jure,

    On IE 8

    I am not seeing any related post on any of my post.

    I see the title “related post”

    but I don’t see any post –

    I see them in safari and on my android devices but not on IE.

    Any clue as to why?




    is it planned to switch between these criterias? I would like to set it to tags and content.
