Custom post types are one the best features in WordPress. Since WordPress 3.0 they are much easier to use. Almost every theme I build for a client features at least one custom post type and usually a custom taxonomy as well.But there is a problem. There is no plugin that lists related posts that are from a custom post type. After looking through the sourcecode of a few plugins I decided to implement my own related content plugin.Plugin Features * Depends on PHP5 and MySQL5 * Option to add related posts to the RSS feed * Use fulltext indexes for good performance * Does caching through post meta or transients * Incremental scoring for sites with many posts * Find related posts, pages and custom post types * Score relationships by various MySQL relevance scores or term relationships o Use tags, categories or custom taxonomies * Internationalized, OO, hopefully well documented and readableOther plugins I wrote * Better Lorem Ipsum Generator * Better Related Posts * Custom Avatars For Comments * Better Tag Cloud * Theme Switch * MU fast backend switch * Visitor Movies for WordPress * Zero Conf Mail * Move WordPress Comments * Delete Pending Comments * Snow and moreInstall : If you have a big site keep in mind that installing this plugin will create a fulltext index for your posts, so the size of the wp_posts table can almost double. 1. Upload the plugin to your plugins directory 2. Enable the plugin 3. Enable automatic display of related postsHow to place a related content list manuallyIf you don't enable automatic display of related posts on the plugin options page (the very first setting) you'll have to use the template tag to insert a related content list into your theme. If you use this outside of the WordPress loop you have to pass the post ID as parameter.How to build a custom loop of related postsHere is a short example how to build your own loop of related posts. This way you can add excerpts, post thumbnails etc.Please notice that the posts won't be ordered by score if you build a loop like this. To accomplish this you'll have to sort the posts in $my_query manually. I have a relevant example on how to sort posts manually on my site. I'll build something like this into the plugin in the future.How to evaluate different scoring methodsLogged in admins can get the results of all scoring methods by using the template tag in the loop of their theme. Example:The scoring methodsContent to content, title to content and title do title are simple MySQL fulltext searches.Keywords to content and keywords to title do a fulltext search for a string that contains all terms a post has. If a post is in the category Fruits and tagged sweet a fulltext search for "Fruits sweet" will be performed.Terms against taxonomies searches for posts that have the same terms as the current one. By default only posts that use the same taxonomy are found. It is however as well possible to find posts that use a different taxonomy, by searching this other taxonomy for terms of the same name. See the examples below.How to use different configurations at the same timeIt is possible to use different configurations of the plugin at the same time. Let's say you use the normal related content feature for your posts. But you also have a custom post type 'venue'. To get a custom list of related venues use this:It is imporant to define a storage ID, or the plugin will overwrite the scores for the standard posts with the scores for your custom configuration. The default storage ID is 'better-related-', so you should avoid that unless you changed the default.To get a similar listing that includes related posts (from the built-in 'post' post type) use:Now an example that shows off all configuration options available:Notes: * Using the usetax parameter means that cross-taxonomy searches will be performed. It is not recommended to use this parameter at the moment, as it's usage will probably change in the future. However, if different taxonomies share terms you can play with this parameter. * You should not log on live sites. * The high querylimit in this example could slow down your site. * The transient storage should only be used temporarily and for testing purposes. * Enabling incremental scoring means that the relatedness scores for posts will be calculated in multiple steps. In the example above up to 30000 related posts will be found and the necessary queries will be spread across three page views, assuming there is no cache.Find posts related to a stringThe template tag returns related posts for a string. The tag prints a list of posts related to a string. Usage:I use this on 404 pages currently, see the paste for my dynamic WordPress 404 search form. In the future I will probably add a replacement for the built-in WordPress search to this plugin.mysqld configurationGenerally speaking, the plugin should work out of the box. However, there are two settings you might want to change, see the mysql full-text fine-tuning docs.ft_min_word_len controls the minumum length of words. This defaults to 4, which might be too small if you use acronyms like CSS, PHP etc. You can change or set that option to 3 in your mysqld config. You will have to re-build your fulltext indexes after doing this, use "REPAIR TABLE table_name QUICK;" where table_name is wp_posts on a default WordPress install.The second option could be interesting if your site is not in english and you want to improve search results. Use the ft_stopword_file option to create your own stopwords file. MySQL uses english stopwords by default.
