    Related content shows up under the posts in CHROME but it looks awful and when I pick a new theme it doesn’t change on the site at all.

    The related content doesn’t show up in EDGE either.

    Hi,

    The problem is caused by the missing assets on the blog front-end. I can’t see the plugin stylesheets nor the javascript files loaded. I suspect it might be either:
    – because the theme is missing the mandatory wp_head() function call from it’s header.php file. Some very old or custom made themes may have this issue. You will have to check with the theme for that.
    – something else is purposfully de-queueing the plugin assets.

    The front-end reports that you are using WordPress 2.8.6, is that correct? That is very outdated, unsecure, and over 8 years old release, I very highly recommend updating it to the latest release. Most plugins, including this one, only supports WordPress 4.0 and later. If this is the case, I recommend backing up everything before proceeding to update, as updating from very old versions can be problematic.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    It is indeed an old customized theme. I added the <?php wp_head(); ?> and it seems to have fixed it. Running the latest wordpress, the theme just reports the old one for some reason.

    My host also reported that the plugin disabled my cache plugin causing heavy load on the server. Will <?php wp_head(); ?> fix that as well? I run W3 Total Cache.

    Very likely, as many plugins out there depends on the wp_head(); function. I would also suggest checking the footer.php file if the wp_footer(); call is there, it’s also very important. The plugin also has an internal, independent cache, so after the W3TC cache and the internal cache re-builds, the server load will be back to normal.
