WordPress Product Recommendations Plugin Description
The Contextual Product Recommendations Plugin lets you add a related products widget to any post on your WordPress site. This related products WordPress plugin makes it easy to recommend products and refer blog readers to them from your store.
Two Ways of Using The Plugin
- Show widget at the bottom of every page – Add the recommendations widget to the end of selected post types by looking for specific words.
For example, add recommendations on all posts, but not pages, everytime the word “Dark Side of The Moon” appears.
- Show anywhere and filter by categories – Show only recommendations of specific categories by adding a configurable shortcode anywhere.
For example, suggest products of the category “Music” in album reviews.

The Product Recommendations plugin also lets you create categories and filter products shown in the product widget based on the selected category.
Product recommendations can show up below your post, or anywhere within the post content by using a simple shortcode. The product recommendation is shown in three ways:
- Recommendations Widget – A widget which includes several related product images. The product images are linked to the product page on your WordPress site or an external site. See an example here.
- Linked Terms – Each term associated with the product within the post can be linked to a product page or an external site link. Each product can have an unlimited number of terms and synonyms associated with it. Once a term is defined, the recommendation for the product is shown in the post, when the term appears in the post.
- Affiliate Code – You can also include an affiliate code in the product URL to earn commission on external sites.
Control Each PageWant to go beyond default settings? Change the widget's content on each page.
Alternatively, disable it altogether on a specific page.

Contextual Terms for Product Recommendations
If there are too many relevant products which can appear in the widget of a specific post, the plugin will randomly pick the amount of products that can fit into the widget based on user settings while giving priority to products with higher weight.
You can filter the product recommendations by using categories. When limiting the products shown in a specific post to a category, only certain products which belong to that category will appear in the post.
