  • Resolved Nicole



    I am a developer that runs a lot of client’s sites and I have recently upgraded a few of my sites to the latest version, however, all the sites I have done this for automatically put related posts on all of the posts and the pages. Most of my sites do not need related posts on the pages. I know where the setting is, but I have over 20 sites on a network so I know that once I upgrade the plugin, I’m going to have to change that setting on every single site. Is there a reason why you have decided that this feature must be turned on with the upgrade? Is there a way I can upgrade and keep the same settings rather than going in and having to turn this off on every site?

    Hi Nicole! We are so sorry about this. We just received word that this happened to people in our last update, but didn’t realize it’s affected multiple updates. I have informed engineering. We’ve been releasing several enhancements over the past few weeks, many of which were to the Related Content (Recommendations) feature. Unfortunately, there was an oversight concerning the saving of preconfigured settings for enable/disable. Please, accept our apologies for any frustration this has caused you. We’ll be fixing this ASAP. Thank you for reaching out to us. 🙂

    btw, just a thought — if there is a some sort of tool we can build to help you administer Shareaholic on multiple websites, please let us know what you’d want to see is such a tool! Do you use anything to manage multiple installs right now?

    Thanks for the response. I need to make the new WP update and am probably going to wait until some of the plugins update as well and do it all together so that hopefully everything is compatible on the new install and working correctly by that time.

    I have most of my sites (25) on a network (WPMU) so I can update the plugin for all of them all at once. I have a few that are separate installs due to ecommerce, etc so I just manually do those. Not a big deal since it’s just a few more. But someone sent me this awhile back to manage multiple sites:
