    Hi Kevin, I’ll take another look this afternoon and spot the culprit, expect another minor Plugin update 🙂

    great plugin. The products are all showing up, though the links all go to the same url as the current product, like michael’s problem. Any update?

  3. Anything Graphic US Anything Graphic

    Thanks for the 1.7.2 update! The “automatic…” selection now works. However, each of my 6 related products points to the same URL as the single product that is being displayed.

    What I mean is that I am on Product 1 (single product page) and there are 6 related products showing. Each of the related products points to Product 1 URL, instead of their own product URL page. Does that make sense?

    Is there a workaround, or possible another update?

    Thanks Michael!

    Dude, I’m sorry. The reason why it started working is because I actually selected certain products. It doesn’t work when I use the option “automatically select related products.”

    Why is that?

    Disregard my last comment… It magically started to work 🙂 Just need to CSS it up a bit.

    I just purchased this plugin and I can’t get it to work… I installed, activated, set the options to display under the description and nothing shows up. I tried to manually insert the template tag as well and nothing is showing up…

    Any thoughts?

    Don’t pay attention to my previous comment, the problem was not related to this plugin, the related plugins work perfectly for me.

    How does ‘Use automatic selection of Related Products’ work? I have related products set to display 3 products. I am thinking that I can check this box and have it pull 3 random products to show next to a product. I have this box checked and it doesn’t display any additional related products.

    Also, how does ‘Disregard Related Products for this product’ work? If I have this box checked, it won’t display any related products for a particular product, right?

    If this isn’t correct, can you explain these?

    I just bought this plugin, and it works great.

    I just have a problem, when the plugin is active, the lithbox galery from the wp-ecommerce isn’t working anymore?

    I suppose there’s a conflict somewhere?

    Everything is up to date :
    – Gold Cart for WP e-Commerce 2.7
    – WP e-Commerce Plugin 3.7.7
    – Related Products for WP e-Commerce 1.7.1

    how do I fix this ?

    I am just setting up a new website for a Jewellery business using wp e-commerce.

    I am aiming to get 2 lines of 5 products each, just displaying the thumbnails of related products at the bottom of a single product page.

    Would this plug-in and some css styling be the way to achieve this, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    Thanks for your great work.

    Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for the heads up, I’m setting up a new development laptop and will reproduce this issue and resolve it when I can. I’ll update this comment.

    Hi Michael

    This is working great. Only issue I have now is that the current product isn’t being filtered out of the related products…. any thoughts on why this might be happening?


  13. Rachel Tietjen US Rachel Tietjen

    I think I am using a way earlier version (.2) that I purchased in May. I am able to get the upgrade? Thanks again.

  14. Rachel Tietjen US Rachel Tietjen

    I am disappointed that every time I update my wp-ecommerce plugin I have to go back into the wpsc_query.php file and re-add the code to get the related products to work again. Isn’t there a way to use this without modifying core files?! Hope you can help, I have already paid for this plugin….

What does this Plugin do?

Related Products is a WordPress Plugin to extend the WP e-Commerce Plugin by displaying related Products to site visitors, this provides a cross-selling opportunity to other Products available from your store.

It automatically selects related Products based on the Category that the currently displayed Product belongs to, support is also included to manual specify which related Products to display. This has the advantage of displaying? a 'set' of Products (e.g. Silver necklace, silver bracelet, silver watch, etc.).

Can I manually define what related Products are displayed against each Product?

Yes you can using the simple Related Products widget appearing on the Add/Edit Products page, just select the Products you wish to display and save changes. Read more about this feature on the Usage page for Related Products.

Does the current Product being displayed appear in the Related Products?

Nope, Related Products filters out the current Product from the list of available Products to display.

Can I change the positioning of Related Products on the Product detail page?

Related Products uses the standard templates 'hooks' that comes with WP e-Commerce to display the Related Products element. You can manage the position by the Position drop-down option within Store > Upgrades > Related Products, that's not all, you can even use a template tag for absolute control. Read the Usage page for more information.


Related Products comes with a Quick Start document (readme.txt) to help with installing the Plugin. Additional support can be found from the Contact page or methods below.
