Related Labels Macro

Add the Related Labels macro to give people a way to navigate to related content in your site. 

It works by finding labels that pages have in common. It takes the label used on the current page, looks for other pages that use this label, and then lists any other labels that are found on those pages. 

This macro is great for:

  • Knowledge base articles
  • Process and procedure documentation. 

Basically any situation where you want a map of related pages in your site. The list updates automatically, as labels are added and removed from pages over time.
