Step 3) The first option is to set the Cache Output. If you tick this box, the plugin will cache the related posts output when the post is visited the first time. The cache is also cleaned when you save the options page.
Step 4) The next step is to add related posts to certain posts/pages/sections of your site. Tick the boxes you wish to add related posts to the likes of Posts, Pages, Home Page, Feeds and more.
Step 5) The content filter priority is used to help filter the content that is shown on related posts. This section should be left as the default, which is 10.
