Disable learned links in RelatedAnswers2 widget

Is it possible to disable learned links from the RelatedAnswer2 widget but still show manually created links?


Answers, Learned links, Manually related links, Customer Portal


The RelatedAnswers2 widget is designed to show both the manually related links and learned links. The logic behind displaying links works this way:

It will first grab all manually related answers and then any learned link answers if size permits.

The answer size is the 'limit' attribute passed to the RelatedAnswers2 widget. Please refer to the widget documentation to get more details on this widget. You can also access the Widgets page of the Customer Portal Administration site by typing https://<your_site>/ci/tags/widgets in your web browser. You must log in with your username and password to access this page.

Now if you would like to display only the manually related answers, there are two possible workaround options:

1. Assuming we have 2 manually related links to each answer we can set limit on RelatedAnswers2 widget to 2 which will make sure only the manual links will be displayed.

2. Add a custom widget similar to RelatedAnswers2 which excludes learned links. Learned link answers do not have a static_strength set in the links table. So to preserve manually related linked answers and block learned link answers, build a custom widget that queries the links table and filters on static_strength column where the value is greater than 0.
