    Hey there! Love the idea of this plugin – thank you so much for developing it.

    I had a quick question. On my blog (https://whywhathow.xyz) I’ve implemented CRP at the bottom of each post (e.g., https://whywhathow.xyz/book-crunch-meditations-marcus-aurelius/)

    The problem is, every post on my website currently recommends the same post as the top related post >.< perhaps because it’s the longest (at ~7k words) and the newest?

    Any recommendations to force the algorithm to switch up its recommendations?

    Thanks for your help! A

    You can use the shuffle option to not display it as first, but later in the list . Or alternatively you can set that post to be excluded at least until you get larger posts in the pipeline.

    I’m actually have the same problem on a site with over 10k posts. The same 2-4 stories are recommended for every single post. Shuffle posts is on (this seems to only effect the display of the same posts). Any idea how the related posts logic leads to this?

    One thing worth trying, but can have a major impact is shifting the table from myISAM to InnoDB or vice versa. Please note that this isn’t straightforward

    ALTER TABLE wp_posts ENGINE = MyISAM;
    
    ALTER TABLE wp_posts ENGINE = InnoDB;
    

    Use wp_ or the correct prefix

    Thanks for the quick reply. I switched to only compare titles and not article body, cleared the cache and then it worked a lot better, thanks!

    Good to know about the other options for further tweaking too. Much appreciated.
