Sanjeev Sabhlok's notes on technology, hardware, gardening

“Related posts on WordPress” – an outstanding plugin

The following are my settings:

Match threshold: 2

Titles:  consider with extra weight

Bodies:  consider

Tags:  require at least one tag in common

Categories:  require at least one category in common

Oops! Google Chrome could not find

Oops! problems are getting totally chronic on Chrome.

Here are some solutions.

My widgets – text widgets only

I always thought WordPress Widgets are backed up when you back up your theme or database. That is not true, you have to back them up separately by opening a .txt file. Copy all the titles and content from your widgets inside it and the WordPress Widgets backup is ready. [Source]

Widget sets are saved as custom post type objects, thus they can be transferred from blog to blog using the standard WordPress import/export tools. However, individual widget settings (such as the text in your Text widget) are stored by WordPress core as options. As of WordPress 3.0, these DO NOT get transferred using the standard import/export tools. [Source]

There doesn't seem to be any way to store widgets. Hence this is where I'll store copies of the code for the widgets:
