It appears this topic has been raised before but the only answer was a denial that it happens, yet I’ve eliminated other possibilities.
As background, I have several active Hugo sites that make use of related content but have just noticed an issue with this one. The site in question is a sort of cooking / travel site where the content is in two main top-level folders, one for “articles” which are mostly about the ingredients we cook with. The other folder is recipes.
I’ve created a taxonomy called “ingredients” with articles labeled with the ingredient it’s about and recipes tagged with the main ingredient. The idea was that articles would be shown as related content to recipes but this isn’t happening. I’ve tried many things to fix this but it’s clear that no matter what weigh you give to related.indecies, you will only get related content that is in the same top-level folder. Is there any way to get around this?
That’s correct, but not applicable in this case. The dates were all back in 2017. It might be an edge case when all publish dates are the same, so neither older nor newer for the purposes of related content?
