    I’d love to be able to add the ‘related posts‘ tool to our main website, so that it shows links to posts from our blog that are related to the page you’re on.

    I’m guessing that’s not possible, but it can’t hurt to ask!

    Alternatively does anyone know of another service that will do this for a reasonable price?

    The blog I need help with is news.merton.gov.uk.

    You cannot add any “tool” to your site as there is no FTP access. I think your are referring to a browser add-on/extension. See https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/removing-zemanta-integration?replies=1

    WordPress.com has done as much replacement as they intend to do at this time. Note that WordPress.com’s related posts system will automatically place text links to three related posts from your own blog below the Likes sections of your post.

    Also note that Zemanta can be easily re-installed via the browser extension. http://www.zemanta.com/download/

    Note that there are already 3 related posts displaying on your blog below each post. Example: http://news.merton.gov.uk/2014/05/01/merton-continues-clamp-down-on-litter-bugs/

    Sorry, I didn’t make myself clear. I meant I want to display the related posts widget on a different (non-WordPress) website. Our main website doesn’t use WordPress. We just use WordPress for our news pages.

    Hey, sorry for the late follow-up, but maybe Zemanta is what you are looking for after all, since you can add related posts from your own blog and quality, related articles from around the web to your blog posts, even if they’re hosted on other blogging platforms (such as TypePad, Blogger, WP.com, WP.org).

    You are more than welcome to install our extension to your browser and test it out: http://zem.si/PqCSDD

    And do let me know how it goes or if you have any more questions what-so-ever, since I’ll gladly help you out! Here’s my email address: [removed per forum rules]

    Take care & have a nice day!

    Best,
    Silvo
