Today I woke up wanting to make some changes to the blog and decided to install a plugin related posts although I'm from the idea of installing few plugins, or at least the necessary ones I decided to see what I could do, after everything went well I decided to go through here to make a review and I hope it serves them.
Ya Guillermo a while ago had echo an entry on like having post related in your blog with the simple plugin tags, which is something similar.
To have related post or related entries I install the plugin WordPress Related Posts
Let's download the plugin upload it to the wordpress plugins folder, (by default wp-content / plugins), go to the admin panel, activate the plugin, go to "settings" "Or" options "(depending on the language of your wordPress) and we go to nfigurarlo.
Related Post title: We will put the title that will warn that the links below are going to be "related".
When No Related Posts , Dispaly: At this point we must choose between 3 options in which we must indicate what to do to the plugin in case of not finding related posts.
Option # 1 : Text not related post – (below I explain)
Option # 2 : Random Posts – if we choose this option, when the plugin does not find any related post it will select post to chance that they have no relationship. It is the option that I recommend choosing because you will always find something and there will be something "relevant".
Option # 3 : Most commented Posts – We will show you the posts more commented.
After having chosen any of the 3 options, we have:
No Related Post's Title or Text: Here we are going to write the text that is going to show in case you do not find any related post.
Continue configuring, in the box " Limit " we will indicate the number of related posts that we want to show the box in white and default will show us 10 post you choose the amount. 😉
Exclude (category IDs): Here, if you want to exclude any category among the related posts, enter the category id.
And finally, Other Setting ]:
Auto Insert Related Posts : this box must be marked so that the related posts appear, which, I suppose, will be so as not to have to modify the code of any file.
Related Posts for RSS : This option is disabled since I do not see much use, it serves to show post from the feed.
Display Comments Count: Activating this box will show us the number of comments have the related posts suggested by us.
Display Post Date: Activate the date on which the related posts were written.
And we conclude the plugin configuration, as you saw there are several options and several plugins to do the same , or something similar, that's why it's good to try to show more alternatives and not keep a single plugin.
