Related Posts vs. Posts in Assembler

Related Posts vs. Posts in Assembler

Here's the difference between Related Posts and Posts in Assembler

By using Related Posts and Posts in Assembler, you can help your audience stay engaged with your site's content and generate more traffic. Both of these features can be added to any post through Entry Editor.

When creating or editing a post, you can add a Related Posts section to the bottom of it that consists of a selection of existing posts on your site that you choose to surface. Only the main image and content headline are pulled, along with a link to the original post. This is similar to the Around the Web section that also shows up at the end of your post when you enable it from the SEO tab of Entry Editor.


One way to use Related Posts is by featuring your own related content within the body of a new post.

To add Related Posts to your post, use our Add Media Bar and search for Related Posts:

This is what it looks like after you've selected the content to feature:

Posts in Assembler, by contrast, pulls the headline, content body, author, and picture credit of selected posts into a new Assembler, while also linking out to each respective post.

Here we've performed a search for the posts we want to select and pull into Assembler:

And here we can see an example of one of the selected posts in Assembler, along with its photo, photo credit, headline, and body:

In both Assembler and the post body, you can sort related posts by relevance and age. Select your preference in the SORT BY drop-down menu underneath the SELECT button.

Here's a screencast of how to filter the order of your related posts.

Posts in Assembler can also be used to easily generate newsletters. For example, you can feature the top five latest posts, or feature an older post in a new one.

In 2023, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2023 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.
