I have 6 related posts by tag in every post. But some tags have only 2 or 3 posts. So in these posts, related posts section shows only 2 or 3 post.

I want to complete related posts (if not 6) with the new posts.

I tried many codes but if tags have 2 posts, than related posts show 2 post only. Can I add new posts to complete to 6?

Or can I display recent post order by same tag? So, there will be 6 posts and same tags will be shown first.

Thanks in advance!

  • You can try it. Here! Good luck for you :D – Quang Feb 1 '18 at 9:23
  • Thank you so much. I tried that but it shows only recent posts. It does not show posts with the same tag. I could not figure out what is the $brand_name. – ahmet Feb 1 '18 at 9:40

Sorry, no posts with this tag!

  • Dharmishtha, thanks so much. Is there any way to display new posts even there is no posts with same tag. Let's say I created new post with the tag NewTag. And there is no other posts with this tag. Then related posts section will display -Sorry, no posts with this tag!- Can't we display new posts if empty? – ahmet Feb 1 '18 at 10:21
