Related Items (Helix Blog) Control

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hi Guys,

How does one turn off Helix Blog related items for a given category or article? Currently, with this feature on, there are related items on every article.

Now, for the actual blog, that's great. But on some single article pages (About, Privacy, etc.) we don't want this layout because it is in fact not a blog. We certainly need the related items in a news section but in other places its silly and is changing our layout.

So, how can we turn this off per category, menu item, or article.

I've also checked documentation here: https://www.joomshaper.com/documentation/helix-framework/helixultimate#documentation-heading-1_3 - which hasn't been updated to even include the new feature.

Thanks!

Hi,
Thanks for your query. Sorry there is no default feature like that. But there is a workaround for the articles which has been published from menu-item.
1) Add a class to the menu-item http://prntscr.com/nmq2u1
class name: related-article-off
2) Then add this css into your custom css

.related-article-off .related-article-list-container {
display: none;
}

Here you'll get all the informations regarding custom css https://www.joomshaper.com/documentation/helix-framework/helixultimate#documentation-heading-1_8

Hi Sifat,

We've already created such a class as a work around. But I think anyone will agree this is a major headache. The related items are perfect in the blog, but they should be configurable via category or menu items, etc. Can you please ask the dev's to update this. Otherwise, what's the point of the feature if it automatically requires customization and extra work to utilize it.

Thanks!
Documentation - Blog Settings needs an update. Features are missing.

Also agree with user "MW Dev". Where is the Related Articles CATEGORY restriction parameter? A global setting makes no sense at all.

Even the Comments feature has got a proper parameter:
helixulti_blogsettings_comments_cat_restriction.png

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your valuable suggestions. The related article is based on the category and tags and that's not customisable. Thanks why there is no option for that.

Thanks for your valuable suggestions.

Please, add it on your Dev's todo list.
It's a nice feature, but it has to have restrictions. Even not with alternative template style settings, because an article display should not be controlled by a template parameter. It's a component/module thing.
Thank's in advance.
