What is the trick to getting the Related Articles module to show links to other articles?

Post by Forsh » Sun Jun 16, 2024 2:40 pm

I have several articles (in fact most) that have no links that show up at all in this module on the page even though they are literally the exact same posts just posted again. They share the same keywords in the title, in the tags, and similar working in the meta description and meta keywords. Do I have to do something more intentional like have an exact meta keyword in every article? For example...like "restaurant" (even though this is meaningless as a meta keyword for search engines)? For some reason only my postings related to "construction" sometimes show a list of related articles which is weird because I don't do anything different for them.

Restaurant (nothing shows up at the bottom, despite there being an exact post like this one a few weeks earlier)
https://www.denverdonate.com/denver-new ... restaurant

versus

Construction (Two Related Posts show)
https://www.denverdonate.com/denver-new ... n-laborers

I just checked Laborer and Security articles and nothing related shows up for them either for them. I would appreciate any tip to get this functioning better.

You have set it up as per this documentation, and is still not working?

For the first link I can't determine if you actually have a "Related articles" module on that page. Have you placed it in an existing module position for that template?
