update

What's inside this article:


Basic information

You can add a Related content section on most content page types. Related content includes links to other content published by your site. For example, if your site publishes both an Article and a Video on the same topic, you might want to link these items using Related content.

Related content links are automatically reciprocated between certain types of content pages. For example, if the Related content on an Article page includes a link to a Video, the same Article is added automatically to the Related content on the Video page. For detailed information, go to the following section:

NOTE: To learn which content page types support Related content, go to the following section:



Add Related content

Add Related content using either method below:

  • Select Add related content on the Editor screen.

Then, follow these basic steps:

  1. Set the search filters in the left panel according to your preferences, and hit Search.
  2. Select + Attach (the plus icon) next to each item you want to add.
  3. Hit Save. This action confirms the items you want to add, but the changes will not be saved or published.

All added items are visible on the Editor / Related content screen. The following options are available:

Rules for reciprocated Related content

Related content links are automatically reciprocated between certain types of content pages. For example, if the Related content on an Article page includes a link to a Video, the same Article is added automatically to the Related content on the Video page.

The following connections apply:

  • When you add Related content to a text content page, links to multimedia and interactive content pages that support Related content are reciprocated.
  • When you add Related content to a multimedia content page, links to text content pages that support Related content are reciprocated.
  • When you add Related content to an interactive content page, links to text content pages that support Related content are reciprocated.
NOTE: Links to the same type of content page are never reciprocated. For example, if the Related content on an Article page includes a link to another text content page (such as another Article or a Blog), the link is not reciprocated.

To learn which content page types are classified as text, multimedia, and interactive, go to the following section:
