Similar By Terms 7.x-1.0-beta3 Description
Description: This Drupal module attempts to provide context for content items by displaying a block with links to other similar content. Similarity is based on the taxonomy terms assigned to content. Blocks are available based on similarity within each of the defined vocabularies for a site as well as a block for similarity within all vocabularies. As of version 1.8 you can now display teasers as well as just the titles.
What does this really mean? How should you use this module?
1) Create a freetagging vocabulary called "Tags" assigned to the content types on which you'd like to display the "Similar" block.
2) Enable the block called "Similar entries from the Tags vocabulary".
3) Add keyword tags to the content.
Now when you go to the page for a tagged content item, a block will show up displaying other content in descending order of common tags (terms).
*note Version 1.2 has a flaw that causes an error if no node is selected. It is recommended you upgrade to that latest version to fix.
Starting with 1.15 blocks are now cached to improve performance you can disable the cache if you want to in the Similar By Terms Settings. You can also clear the cache from there.

As with all contributed modules, when considering submitting an issue:
1. Clear the Similar by Terms Cache.
2. Read the documentation (two or three times is better).
3. Review the existing issues list. (Don't forget to select "<all />" for the "Status" field.)
4. Gather all the appropriate information. This may include (but is not limited to):
* Drupal version.
* Browser type and version.
* Database type and version.
* Error messages, if any.
* Module settings.
5. Submit the issue. If other modules are involved, you may need to submit the issue to those modules as well.
PHP 4 and MySql 4
Due to end-of-life on PHP4 and MySql4, we no longer actively support either of those products. If a problem arises, we will make an effort to work around it, but will not make a guarantee. Drupal 7 will require PHP 5.2.5 or higher and MySql 5 (or Postgres 8); if your host is not at these levels yet, please encourage them to get there ASAP.
The module was originally created by Jeff Robbins and sponsored by Lullabot.
