    Is there a method to offset the related posts so that it publishes older posts instead of newer?

    Hi!

    Well, not without a modification to the code. The ordering always uses relevance, then date descending.

    If you want to change that, just follow these steps:

    1. Open up the wp-content\plugins\related-posts-pro\includes\related_content.class.php file on your server via FTP.

    2. Find line 577 which should be this:

    ORDER BY relevance DESC, " . $wpdb->posts . ".post_date DESC

    3. Change that to:

    ORDER BY " . $wpdb->posts . ".post_date ASC

    ..or, if you still want relevance as primary, but date ascending you can also try:

    ORDER BY relevance DESC, " . $wpdb->posts . ".post_date ASC

    4. After the change, save the plugin options, so the cache is cleared.

    This should very likely do the trick.

    Best,
