RAXO Related Articles - Advanced Parameters to control Tags/Keywords matching?

Post by pepperstreet » Jun 17, 2016 3:39 am

Hello, I have found the documentation and screenshots, but I could not find details about the actual relation "method". I mean further options that have an impact on the results. How does the module compare tags/keywords? What is concerned as a "match" and what is not?
I think I have found another topic, where a user has mentioned "FJ Related Plus" module... it seems to have options to control the matching algorithm.

Does RAXO Related Articles have such options and parameters?
If yes, would you mind to show some screenshots, please?

Thanks in advance.

The module has four ways to find related articles:
There are four options to select relation type for similar article suggestion:
Author - the module will search for other articles of the same author or author alias.
Keywords - the module will search for articles with the same meta keywords;
Tags - the module will search for articles with the same tags;
Not specified - no relation type is selected, so the module won’t search for related articles. However, other module settings will still be valid, e.g. you can display popular articles from the current category.
When a user reads an article on the site, the module searches among all the published articles within the area you define in Category Selection parameter and creates a list of articles related to the current article.

Relation type by author
- the module will display articles with the same author ID. If there are no such articles except the current entry, the module doesn't show anything;

Relation type by keywords
- the module compares keywords word by word. Articles become related if at least one keyword is matched.

Relation type by tags
- the module compares by tag ID. If at least one tag ID is matched, the article is selected as related. If the current entry doesn't have any tags assigned, the module will display a list of any articles according to ordering settings.
Does RAXO Related Articles have such options and parameters?
This is a vague question. What options exactly do you want to see in the module?

As time flies by ;) Again I am looking for some extensions for related items display.
Sorry, you did not understand my "vague" question. I thought it would be enough to link the other forum topic and the product I was referring to. I hope I can explain the (lacking) options and parameters.

You have said an article is related, as soon as there is 1 match. That's an important thing to me.
What I miss here, is a parameter to control that "matching". Maybe it can be described best as "Relevance", "Importance" or some sort of "Weight".

For instance, the latest Joomla core module Similar Tags has a "Match Type" parameter with values of ALL, ANY, HALF:
module_j_similar_tags.png

Another example is FJ Related Plus. It allows to set a specific number for "Minimum Matches". Which might give better results, if there are a lot of keywords/tags used:
module_fj_related_plus.png

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the details.
At the moment, the module displays articles if at least one tag matches. But we like the idea to add a parameter "min number of matching tags".

Using TAGS

I have the need to select article matchings tag "A" and tag "B", at the moment, when selecting multiple tags, RAXO does a OR selection instead of an AND selection.

Is there a place where this could be modify to change the behavior?

What module do you mean?
