find related articles.. how to ?

hello all,

I was wondering how some sites organise articles so that they can show a
list of "related articles".
How is it determined which are the related ones.

Is there any free script that includes such a feature?

One way (and there is no *one* way) is to assign a "section number" or
"category" to each article in a database. So you could have a table
with the folowing columns:


Then for any given article, take the last 3 (or whatever number you
wish) articles from within the same category and post links to them
underneath as "related articles".

P.S. By sticking the author column in there as a seperate field, you
could also have an "Also by [Author Name]..." list.
