Gerelateerde Berichten door Taxonomie


Quickly increase your readers’ engagement by adding related posts in the sidebar or after post content with a widget or shortcode.

Posts with the most terms in common will display at the top!

This plugin works wonderfully. I integrate it with Elementor (works better than their native related posts) and had a little problem getting it to function how I wanted it to. The dev found my problem and helped me resolve it in less than 20 minutes of replying back and forth to each other. Thank you for offering this free - quite kind. Highly recommended!
