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 do you make more similar posts to your products, we have some ideas about it.
In Lite version only the title and content text similarity is relevant, and you have no more possibilities 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 happened if related items do not appear?
The problem could be caused by the following 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 a 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 a 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 a post by using same words in the title or content or if you have the Pro version, use common categories or tags between different types of items.
