Automatic functionality of Related Articles feature not working
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Despite having it set up to work, RelatedArticles is not automatically fetching articles from the API and providing the proper footer links. I was able to make it work manually on the page below by adding two articles to display manually.

Manual Related Pages code

{{#related:Nazi Germany}}
{{#related:Joseph Goebbels}}

We would like to have Related Pages work automatically, with manual override as a fallback option, based on the options available in the wiki configuration, I believe it is misconfigured on the backend or not all configuration options required as specified at the page below are available to make it function properly:

I think this is not a bug actually. The extension depends on CirrusSearch's "morelike" to locate related articles automatically, according to Help:Extension:RelatedArticles. We need to add $wgRelatedArticlesUseCirrusSearch, as well as $wgRelatedArticlesOnlyUseCirrusSearch to ManageWiki.
