The Related Projects widget lets you list other projects on your site manually or automatically. Linking between projects helps drive engagement and communication.

Related Projects links display in the widget content area and have separate headings for live and archived projects. Hidden projects are not displayed.

The project links are also ordered by creation date (oldest-newest), regardless of manual or automatic selection. If you choose auto-selection, only projects published or archived after you add the widget will display.

To add the widget:

  1. Select Add Widgets on your project page and choose Related Projects from the Select Widgets menu.

  2. Select the pen icon next to the title to change it, or check Hide title to hide it. Checking Hide title will only hide the widget title, not the Live and Archived Projects headings.

  3. To manually choose your projects, select Select Projects and check each project you want to include in the Add projects list. This list is ordered by creation date and includes Published, Archived, and Hidden projects; you can select Hidden projects, but they will only be listed if they are unhidden. Similarly, if you Hide an archived project, it will no longer appear in the widget.

  4. Save & Close the Add projects list.

  5. Instead of, or in addition to, manual selection, you can check Auto-select newly published projects and Auto-select newly archived projects to list projects when they are published or archived automatically. Please note that this only applies to projects published or archived after you add this widget.

  6. By default, the widget will show 5 projects on the project page, with any extra ones accessible via the More... link. You can increase this in the Show maximum [] projects field.

  7. All projects included are listed in the widget.

Widgets are automatically saved and published to your project and listed in the widgets section of your project page. The Related Projects widget will show how many projects are linked. You can also use the dropdown menu to Show or Hide it on your project, the bin icon to delete it, or select the title to edit it.
