Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Thank you colak, but I’ll leave native tags as a last option. I am looking for something more flexible out-of-the-box, I mean something to list related articles based on section, category, keyword or relevance. I cannot find a tool like that, so I was wondering if there is an updated version of chh_related_articles that can fit nicely into Txp 4.5.7

It’s not exactly (nor only) for related articles, but etc_search is more recent and yet not orphan. :) If you install it, go to “Extensions->Search settings” and create a search form (say, 1) with the article-context query

ID!=<txp:article_id /> AND {/^[\w\s\-]+$/::Keywords;/#(.+)/::Section='$1'} ORDER BY Title

Then calling

<txp:etc_search_results id="1" form="some_article_form"
	query='(<txp:keywords />) #<txp:section />' />

within an article (form) will output the keywords-related articles from the same section. You can add more chunks to the query for targeting by categories, author and so on.

Or switch to 4.6, where <txp:article_custom /> accepts exclude attribute:

<txp:article_custom exclude='<txp:article_id />' keywords='<txp:keywords />' ... />

etc_[ query | search | pagination | date | tree | cache ]

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Got it: one way or another I will have to get my hands dirty with native tags and/or database queries ;) Thank you all for your suggestions.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Is there an update to this? chh_related_articles was really great because it covered many options of fields including custom fields.

(And thanks for the etc_search mention — won’t replace what I need for related articles, however I needed a live_search replacement :)

IIRC, we have extended match attribute in 4.6 to author, keywords, custom fields… Try something like

<txp:related_articles match="Category1, My_Custom_Field" />

I’m sure it can replace what you need, just say what :-)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Oh yay! I’ll try txp:related_articles again, that will hopefully cover it.
Thanks!

**update: <txp:related_articles /> is perfect.
