Can anyone shed some light on how the Related Posts section works? I cannot find the logic in the relatedposts.cs and therefore assume it is within the blogengine core (which I cannot access). It appears to use keywords but how does it choose the word? How does it rank the relevancy??

Thanks in advance.

To highlight, Related Posts works through searching algorithm. It takes the post title and category of the current post as search term. The rank relevancy works this way: if search terms is found in post title, it is weighted 20. Otherwise it is weighted 1. The resultset then is sorted based on rank, higher on top.
