This plugin is based around the concept of lists. You can create a list, then assign posts to it. (A post can only be on one list.) When a list is created, you edit the blog posts and assign them to the list. When a blog post is assigned to a list, they can be listed in your blog posts.
This plugin differs from the other ones out there, because it does no magic! (And that’s a good thing). You have to create a list. Assign various blog posts to that list.
You have complete control of your related posts, making this plugin a great asset when you create a series of blog posts, with different parts or chapters.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘My related posts’ menu in WordPress
It easy to use!
There are two ways to use this plugin. You can either edit your theme (file: my-theme/single.php) and add the following snippet:
(The $title is optional, but let’s you specify a title to to appear before the actual related posts are listed.)
Or you can use a shortcode tag and add it manually to the posts you’d like!
Just add the following shortcode tag:
[myrelposts-related title=”my title”]
(The title is optional, but let’s you specify a title to to appear before the actual related posts are listed.)
Get related posts and pages, using the list name!
A new feature in version 1.2 is that you can get a list of related posts, by passing the list name in the shortcode tag!
[myrelposts-related list=”my related post list”]
Using the list tag, causes the plugin NOT to look at the current post’s meta information, so use this tag wisely.
(as a bonus feature, you can use wildcards, text , in the list title.)
