Since the theme release people have been clamoring for a related posts instead of recent posts option for the Acabado theme. I found some quality sources for understanding of the code then reverse applied it to Acabado to give us the display we have.

I would love to hear in the comments opinions on what exists and any changes which would make it more viable to the community. Please leave the comments below and once I have tweaked it to everyone’s liking I will release the guide to add it to your site.

7 thoughts on “Adding Contextual Related Posts To Acabado Articles

  1. I like how you have implemented this with the three related posts instead of two and love the idea to pull for tags then categories. In the current iteration below, the categories, tags and date are displayed, I’d prefer just the normal excerpt to display.

    I’d also like the excerpt to auto truncate at xx lines. I’m not great about making my excerpts the same length and it annoys me when the excerpts are a different # of lines. With three related posts displayed, that.

    1. Let me look and see, removing display and pulling the_excerpt is cool but I need to figure out how to inject that into Customizer so that you can enable or disable portions I think to make it more graceful in the long run.

  2. Is there a way to change the Recent Posts to Related Posts in the theme yet? I cannot find any option. Is there some code I can enter into the css? The theme really needs this option or else I’m just served up the same articles over and over again at the bottom of every post. And, once a person has read all those, they have to scroll up to the Menu bar and select another category for the same thing to happen again. It makes a site appear to have only a handful of articles. So I believe this feature is a must-have! 😉

    1. My child theme replaces the Recent Posts with this Related posts, the related posts are based on tags and category matches. It is constantly in development and can be downloaded here. It just sits on top of the existing Acabado theme and adds to it, https://acabadotheme.com/acabado-child-theme-development/
