No matter what post I view, I always see the same 5 posts. I tried playing with the taxonomy limit, but that didn’t change anything. Looks like someone else is having a similar issue here. Any ideas what I can try to get this working?
Hello. I was having the same problem as adamdport. upPrev works fine with “random entry,” but shows the same 1 post on every post when using YARPP. I’m using WordPress 3.5 with Thesis 1.8.5. YARPP 4.0.3 and upPrev 3.3.12. The site is jennaandsnickers.com.
I just downloaded the development version of upPrev and the problems with YARPP are resolved.
I ran into a few issues with the development version though that I thought I would mention.
The box only appears in Chrome. It doesn’t seem to be working in IE.
The custom css changes I enter don’t seem to be working.
When there is an excerpt for the suggested post, it shows the ENTIRE excerpt instead of respecting the word limit. The word limit only seems to apply when there is no defined excerpt.
The side and bottom margin aren’t changing when I change the setting. The box is floating on the page instead of appearing snuggly in the corner and I can’t fix it.
I’m going to keep the development version installed for now. Can’t wait to try the next update when it’s finished. This looks like it is on it’s way to being a great plugin!
By the way, the more I look at it, I don’t mind the full excerpt being shown. My excerpts are a little too long on some posts, so I just need to make them shorter and it’s all good. It still might be good to provide an option though. Something like:
– If excerpt exists, limit number of words to ___ (use 0 for no limit).
– If no excerpt exists, limit number of words to ___.
PS I know I’m off-topic for this thread now, but I wanted to make one more note about the development version. I had to deactivate it after all. When I checked the site on my tablet, my site was broken (nothing but a PHP error). I tried checking the “hide from tablet” option in the prefs, but it still broke the site.
Fatal error: Call to undefined method IworksUpprev::get_option() in /home/snickthedog/jennaandsnickers.com/wp-content/plugins/upprev/includes/class-iworks-upprev.php on line 135
Hope that helps. Looking forward to the next release!
