The Related Posts section allows you to show contextual posts to your visitors which might be interested in reading similar topics.
Step 1 – Install YARPP
You can simply install and activate YARPP (Yet Another Related Post Plugin) by going into the Plugins → Add New page.
Step 2 – Configure YARPP
In order to benefit from this, first you have to configure it from Settings → YARPP → Display options for your website:
- Uncheck all Automatically display options
- Set Maximum number of related posts to 4
- Select a Custom method of displaying and then Custom Related Posts as Template file so you can use the custom format provided by the theme.
*Note: By default, you’ll most likely have no related posts because the default “match threshold value” is too high.
In order to avoid this, first, display the Relatedness options section via the Screen Options tab at the top and lower the threshold value to 1, and change settings to consider where it’s possible.
