Where did they go from here

説明

Have you seen Amazon.com’s product pages? Amazon is a great example of visitor retention through recommendations. All of Amazon’s pages have a “Customers who viewed this also viewed”. And how many times have you clicked those links? I know I have!

Now you can implement the same feature on your WordPress blog. Where did you go from here let’s you show “Readers who viewed this page, also viewed” links on your page.

The plugin tracks the pages, posts and custom post types that visitors click through from the current post. You can then display these followed posts automatically at the bottom of your posts, using a shortcode or via the inbuilt widget.

If you’re looking for a plugin that displays posts related to the content, look no further than Contextual Related Posts.

  • Shortcode: Use [wherego] to display the followed posts

  • wherego_thumb: Class that is used for the thumbnail / post image

  • wherego_title: Class that is used for the title / text

You can add the CSS code in the Custom Styles section of the plugin settings page or in your theme’s style.css file. To find out the detailed list of available styles, check out the HTML output of the generated code.

Shortcode

Use [wherego] to display the followed posts

echo_wherego()

Use <?php if ( function_exists( 'echo_wherego' ) ) {
echo_wherego(); } ?>

You can also use this function to display posts on any type of page generated by WordPress including homepage and archive pages.

This function takes an array of options similar to the shortcode above.
