    THere is a bug in the code for the Related Posts WP plugin. When readers attempt to access my site using an iPhone they often get redirect errors.

    Here is the documentation from my host’s support staff:
    “When you dump the cache the links on the iPhone work fine. As soon as the related posts plugin throws a query string at the end of the URL and gets cached it causes a redirect loop on mobile devices.
    ./wp-content/plugins/wordpress-23-related-posts-plugin/wp_related_posts.php:define(‘WP_RP_AB_TEST_PARAM’, ‘wprptest2’);
    ./wp-content/plugins/wordpress-23-related-posts-plugin/wp_related_posts.php:define(‘WP_RP_AB_TEST_COOKIE’, ‘wprptest2’);
    If you visit any post on a mobile device you will notice ?wprptest2=0 in the query string – This is what is causing the issue in mobile.”

  • Hey Richard!

    Fortunately, we are aware of this problem and are already working hard trying to find a fix for this as soon as possible. It goes without saying that your feedback on this is very much appreciated! Hopefully we’ll get it sorted soon enough!

    In the meanwhile we would like to ask you if you could try out our other plugin called ‘Related Posts by Zemanta’, which is basically the same service with some extra features, but should work fine on all mobile phones (no errors what-so-ever). You’re more than welcome to give it a try.

    Let me know how it behaves or if you have any other questions — I’ll be more than glad to help you out! Take care & have a nice day!
