Support » Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP) » YARPP and WPML, not showing on second language

  • Hello,

    Ii am using YARPP together with WPML (Multilungual blog plugin) with a child theme to show thumbnails as related posts. The related posts are working without a problem on the english side, arent working on the dutch side.

    I also tried the WPML template which is provided by YARPP itself, the english related posts keeps working. The dutch related pots says; No related posts. However, the languages are almost exact translations. So when a enlgish article got a translation, so must the dutch one have.

    I have had support contact with wpml on the forums:

    They can also not get yarpp to work with wpml, however yarpp should support wpml.

    I used YARPP with the default template, wpml template and another template. No matter which template I choose, related posts only works with the english blog. The Dutch blog doesn’t show related posts. It says there aren’t related posts to show.

    Thank you in advance.

    Have a nice day

    With kind regards,

  • YARPP shows good related posts on my default language, but on all the others, it shows the SAME related posts on each post (and they are not related at all).


    same here
    works fine in the default language..

    also in the admin section the related posts work just fine
    (I mean in the edit-post section)

    This issue must be relatively recent, as I’ve seen it reported recently a few times now. I know there are many users who would like to use both WPML and YARPP, and I hope we can resolve these issues soon.

    Unfortunately, WPML is now a paid product and I do not own it and therefore I am not able to reproduce these issues or test against it. WPML has a paid support forum and I believe it is their (paid WPML staff’s) responsibility to support users and help identify the issue.

    I have had a good relationship with WPML staff in the past. I’ve been contacted by Mihai Grigori and Amir Helzer (between 2009–2011) and I happily incorporated changes they suggested into YARPP in order to work better with WPML. In 2012 I received an email from Brooks Mucunguzi, offering to help make YARPP WPML-compatible. I replied and said that, following previous contact with Amir, my understanding is that YARPP is already WPML-compatible, and did not receive a reply to that email.

    I hope, following what has happened in the past, the WPML staff are again able to identify the source of this incompatibility and suggest a solution. I am happy to take patches and suggestions. I sincerely hope these issues can be resolved soon.

    Michael, thank you for your reply.

    Back at wpml they reproduced the error and told me to contact you.

    I will communicate this with wpml.

    Great. Looking forward to a reply. Thanks again for helping communicate between the communities.

    No news? I looked into the code but it’s really hard to hack into it… I have no idea where to begin.

    Nope, no positive news. I have a support issue on WPML support.

    They are looking into my website and the plugins. I’ll keep this thread updated with more information when i have them.

    Thanks for the updates guys. I pinged the @wpml account on twitter as well, but haven’t heard since.

    Last update is that WPML will contact Michael (YARPP author) for better integration of both plugins.

    This means that my role in this issue for now stops. I really hope both plugin developers can sort this out. I think it would be a high improvement on both sides!

    @dstel thanks for trying to put us in touch! Unfortunately I did reach out to Amir via twitter (owner of WPML, who I’ve spoken to in the past) and did not receive any substantial reply or follow up.

    Amir replied to the latter and clarified that this is for YARPP, but then I haven’t heard since.

    I wish I had better news for you all. 🙁

    Please let us know if something changes and we can use again the YARPP with WPML 😉

    Hey guys! I was wondering what plugin was best to use for Chinese sites, to download videos? Has anybody had any experince with that? Large entertainment places like are super easy to navigate when it comes to media

    but Mandarin sites from China are a pain in the butt!


    I have the same problem. I tried to bypass the cache, as WPML and YARPP seems to work well in all languages when cache has just been flushed.

    Finally I “resolved” the problem by editing the class-core.php file to clear cache before every display (see : ).
    I have only a few related posts then it will be good enough, temporarily.

    Then this is my question :
    Could the problem just rely on the cache save process in custom table mode ?

    It seems like WPML is well implemented and the problem occurs only at a time of the cache process. If only Yarpp is concerned, maybe someone could help find a solution even if WPML team doesn’t answers ?

    Hi Michael,
    This is Mercedes, from WPML. We would like to work on the compatibility. Can you drop me a line and we will be able to help?
