Blocks

Related Posts Block

Related Posts scans all of your posts’ contents, analyzes it, and uses that to display contextual posts your visitors might be interested in reading after they’re finished with the current post. You can insert the Related Posts block into the contents of any page or post.

Table of Contents

Add the Related Posts block to a page by clicking on the Add Block button. Alternatively, you can type /related and press enter. You can add this block anywhere in the post content.

For more, visit our detailed instructions on adding blocks.

Search for the Related Posts block in any block selector to add it to your post

It is only possible to add one Related Posts block to each page/ post.

After adding the block, you’ll see any relevant posts showing up. If you do not have at least 10 published posts, you’ll see a message saying Preview: Not enough related posts found.

The Grid View option in the toolbar displays posts side-by-side while the List View displays them horizontally in a list format.

General Information

  • Related content will not appear unless we think we can show at least 3 good results (to avoid simply cross-linking posts with one another).
  • Related content is automatically generated based on the content of the post and any tags or categories if they exist. It is not possible to hand-pick the posts that are shown.
  • Related Posts for a given article are cached for 12 hours.

Related Post Images

  • A post’s featured image will appear as the thumbnail. If you haven’t set a featured image for the post, we will look for slideshows and galleries, and then for any images that may be attached to the post. If we don’t find any image attached to that post, we’ll look for single images you may have inserted in the post. If you’ve inserted an image that is hosted on another site, we can use it too.
  • Thumbnails are resized and cropped automatically to be 350px wide by 200px tall (1.75:1 ratio) to allow for a consistent visual display. Since this is done automatically, there’s no way to fine-tune where the image is cropped.
