Terms2posts plugin for WordPress

Posted Jul 21st, 2005 • Updated Aug 13th, 2005

Get more WordPress value with the Semiologic CMS Pro package.

The terms2post plugin is a next generation 'related posts' plugin for WordPress that leverages the extract terms and the search reloaded plugins to fully automate post to post linking on your site.


This software requires WordPress v.1.5 or later, the extract terms plugin (included in the zip) and the search reloaded plugin.

1-click install — Not available.

Manual install — Upload the zipped file into your plugins folder, and activate the plugin from your admin panel.

Do not forget to install the extract terms plugin properly.


Activate and add the following where you want to display the loop's ongoing post's terms as related posts on your web site:

<h2>Related posts</h2>
  <?php sem_terms2posts(); ?>

Alternatively, you can display an arbitrary post's related posts by passing a post as argument:

<h2>Related posts</h2>
  <?php sem_terms2posts( $arbitrary_post ); ?>
