Using cross relationship management functions, WRI makes it possible to associate a post, page, or other custom post type to other posts, pages or custom post types, ensures widely configurable relatedness settings, sophisticated cross-relation adjustments. WRI uses the most popular YARPP relationship handling plugin in the background, extending its functionality, retaining its advantages.

WRI combines automatic, manual and common categorization based relationship management. Some functions are available in the PRO version.

Set attributes that define how to display different type of related items for every reference item type. Such a matrix-like way you can specify all necessary variations of display settings.

Configuration options:

  • Used post types can be setup (e.g. posts, product, pages).  Built in WooCommerce product support.
  • Using a matrix-like way you can set how to display different type of related items for every reference item types. For example you can configure how related POST, PAGE or PRODUCT settings displayed for POSTS.  Position, order of blocks, order of related items, match threshold, number of displayed related items limit, format (list or widgets), custom templates can be configured for each reference post types – related post type pair in the matrix.
  • Related items can be displayed right after the reference item, or on sidebar widgets.

PRO version

Cross taxonomies can be used to increase similarities using common categorization between different post types. For example, you can switch on standard post categories for products, so the post category assignment option appears not only on post edit page but on products admin page also. In this way, different post types can be in the same category, increasing the similarity rates.

Manual assignment of items is possible. This way you can define explicit relationship between different items (e.g. assign some product to a post or two related posts to each other)

Does WRI support other custom post types?

Is it possible to display related products on post pages? How can I do this?

Yes, it is.

There should be similarities between different type of posts, and the Match threshold should be set according to the relatedness of posts. It is up to you how can you make more similar your posts to your products, we have some ideas about it.

In Lite version only the title and content text similarity is relevant, and no more possibility to increase relatedness.

In Pro version you have more opportunities to create stronger similarities between different types of posts (e.g. using different kind of common categorization or manually assigned relationships).

What causes that related items do not appear?

The problem may be caused by several reasons:

1. It is possible that the relevancy of similar products is lower than the match threshold, so YARPP can't find any related items.
Try to use lower match threshold using one of the following ways:
- set lower threshold value for every post type on “Related Types” tab of “WP Related Items” options page.
- or leave the above fields empty and set “Match threshold” on "Related Posts (YARPP)" options page. (If you can’t find these settings on YARPP admin page, you should switch on "Relatedness options" section using "Screen Options" tab on the upper right corner of YARPP options page.)
You can try to enter the value 1 as threshold, and if you get related items, you can increase the value (if the value is too low, less relevant items will be displayed). So you can find the optimal threshold value.

2. After you change WP Related Items settings, you may need to save YARPP settings also in Settings -> Related Posts (YARPP) menu, to refresh them. So please push “Save Changes” button on “Related Posts (YARPP)” options page.

3. Try to increase relevancy between different types of post by using same words on the title or content or if you have pro version, use common categories or tags between different types of items.
