Related Content

The instructions in this guide will teach you how to display content related to a category, showing the title and preview text.

Please note: Related content in Maropost Commerce Cloud requires a relation on both sides of the pages. So if you want "Page A" to appear as related content on "Page B", make sure that in the Related content section in the Maropost Commerce Cloud control panel, "Page A" has "Page B" in this section, and "Page B" has "Page A".
