Related Posts are available for Uncode 1.4 and above. Related Posts increase page views and reduce bounce rate. Showing users related content has proven to be an effective way of getting more page views. Related Posts can appear as an option between the content and comments sections of the single post, portfolio or product page.
The related posts option shouldn’t slow down your website, which is why we have implemented a tailored version of the popular Related Posts for WordPress that creates its own cache, and does all the heavy lifting in the admin panel, thereby offering you quality related posts, while keeping your website fast!
