nRelate Closes December 31, 2014

CLOSEDnRelate, the popular content recommendation service has decided to close its doors for the last time at 5:00pm EST on December 31.  On the first of the month they announced on their blog that the end of the year the parent company of nRelate, IAC is switching its focus and leaning completely to consumers of content. Their three plugins have already been pulled from the WordPRess Plugin Repo and they are no longer offering support.

For those of you who do use nRelate they have a Farewell FAQ’s that will give you more information on what to do next. Please find a different alternative to use if you want to keep relative posts on your WordPress website. After December 31 the plugins will become vulnerable and they will not be supporting them or making any updates of their plugins.

Alternatives for nRelate

If you are looking for a product that does what nRelate does you do have a few options. Jetpack by Automattic, YARPP, and Related Posts by Zemanta. All three are great plugins depending on your needs. We suggest you try them all out and decide for yourself. Please let us know which you prefer. I have used Jetpack for years and have had no problems with its features.

If you are using nRelate and have any questions before December 31 you can email them at support@nrelate.com.  If you need help setting up Jetpack please let us know. We are currently planning one of our upcoming weekly webinars on setting up Jetpack.
