I’m looking for a ‘related posts’ plug-in (for my Wordpress site). Would love to know if you have any recommendations! TIA!
I think Yuzo is the most popular, it has a free and paid version. - https://yuzopro.com/
here are a few more options: https://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/5-best-related-posts-plugins-for-wordpress/
I’d suggest doing it “by hand”. You can add a text/html widget and change out the links by season or to whatever you want to feature. Gives you more control and one less plugin to worry about.
I think you could also use a Gutenberg block…although I’ve not experimented much with those yet. @graceandvine just did a podcast about blocks, so that’d be the resource to check for that – https://www.graceandvinestudios.com/5-gutenberg-blocks-for-food-bloggers/
Yep, you can do this with Gutenberg, but it depends on how you want the posts to populate. If you want it to be automatic or contextual, then a plugin is best. If you want to control it (which is what I prefer!) then you can use Atomic Blocks and add a block for showcasing content from a specific category!
Thanks so much! I had Jetpack before, but have removed it. I definitely like the idea of doing something ‘by hand’ to eliminate one more plug-in and risking site speed. When doing it ‘by hand’ is there a way to have it automatically use links from the same category, or would I need to update them manually with each post (and then go back and do it for old posts?). I’ll listen to the podcast too, my answer might be in there
Sorry this was a while ago and you may have figured it out, but yes, you can choose to display posts by category If you reuse the same categories often, you can save those as reusable blocks.
