Hi Everyone,

I'm really new to CMS. Can anyone help me understand the concept of Related Content as it pertains CMS. There is an unfinished module available, but I'm not clear on the actual concept. Is Related Content meant to create references to other content for searching? For example, doctor will have his experience page linked with his articles as a search result? Or is related content integrated into doc type and his video gallery? Please help me understand since it's confusing. Thanks.

In Orchard, related content means having one content item having one or more references to other content items.
So it's not like you have a content item that contains in it some other content item; it will be a reference (generally an ID or a list of IDs) to other content.
