What is related content?

Related content is independent content publications that have some logical relationship.

For example, an article about computer hardware might have some relationship with the following: software, manufacturers, distributors, repair shops...etc.

Content management systems have the potential to grow very large..much larger than most website menu systems can visually accomodate.  Through the use of data queries and related content, though, a site builder can develop a site with a lean, logical menu system for top level, high-priority items - and then use some form of related content display or filterable query to provide an audience with the ability to quickly and easily find what they need.
