I'm really pleased with this module. I run a news-website and being able to show related articles is key to get more hits overall.



In comparison to Joomla's own "Similar Tags"-Module this one is much more adjustable to individual needs. If you're working with tags on your website, this module is perfect for it.



Furthermore, I can say that the support in their own forum is superbe. Within a couple of hours i received an answer to my problem which was fixed right away in a new version of FJ Related Articles.



I can only recommend this module. Thanks to the developers for providing this module for free! Great job!


Yes, it's not flashy and sexy, but it does the job. I hope it works with the tags in Joomla 3.x.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. I'm pleased to announce that FJ Related Articles Plus is now available for Joomla 3.x.

This was a must have for related content driven sites in Joomla 2.5. It needs Joomla 3.0 capability. I hope it gets developed soon.


This is a very useful component because it is so easy to use and adds a function that should be core to Joomla.



I am holding my breath waiting for a J3 version!!


This one of those rare gems that does whatever it is you want to do and more as well as better.



I've loved this for Joomla, but I would be ecstatic to see it support K2 as well.


Great job!

I search for an hours for module "relative articles" like this. Happy to find it! Unfortunetly cannot use the best way, because of keyword, which should be only in English. I have big site, so rewriting dozen of articles is not possible. Hope in new Upgrade this option would be included. Thanks!


Hello I am using your extension with joomla 2.5 I have intro images on all my articles. They do appear normaly when I make a menu with normal category blog list but do not appear when I make menu with a FJ related blog list. Is there a reason?


Nice Module

It works fine for me. It took 2 minutes to get it work. Thanks ;)


Installed this module, tested it, and found an issue with the ordering options. I reported it in the support forum and within hours a fix was created.



That is what I call great support! It's a great example of open source at it's best.



Thanks Mark (and FJ Related team). Keep up the great work!


one of the best

New version for Joomla! Version 3.2 and 3.1! Now FJ Related Component uses Tags instead of keywords for easy maintenance and fast processing. Break free from Joomla's single Category restriction. Did you ever want to put an article into two or more categories? List selected articles from multiple categories? Create a blog or list based on author? This component allows you to create a blog or list layout based on tags or keywords and author. So you can create any number of menu items showing articles based on any combination of tags or keywords. Create blog or list layouts exactly like the standard Category blog and list layouts, but using tag or keyword and author matching instead of Category. Optional match on Author or Author Alias as well as keywords. Option to include articles with ANY matching keywords or only articles where ALL keywords match. Option to limit articles based on Section or Category. Option to show matching keywords and sort based on best match. November 7, 2013: Version 3.0.0 now available for Joomla versions 3.2 and 3.1. January 7, 2010: Version 1.0.10 now available. Allows you to select Published or Archived. Also allows editing from layouts. August 29, 2009: Version 1.0.7 now available. Allows you to create a blog or list without needing an Intro Article. Also, allows you to show all articles written by the currently logged in user. June 9, 2009: Version 1.0.6 now available. This adds a new option to use an exact match on keywords. So keyword lists must have the same words and be in the same order to match. May 7, 2009: Version 1.0.5 now available. This adds a new parameter that allows you to link to other FJ Related menu items instead of articles. If a related article is an Intro Article for another FJ Related menu item, you can link to this menu item instead of to the article. April 12, 2009: Version 1.0.4 now available. It fixes problem with upgrades causing Into Article to be lost. Also adds Italian langage. March 12, 2009: Version 1.0.3 now available. It fixes minor display problem. Here is how it works. You create an article with the desired keywords and author information. Then you create a blog or list layout and select this article for the menu item. That's all there is to it! The blog or list layout will show all articles that match the keywords and author information of the menu item's article. See the Demo page for a quick tour of what you can do.
