      I have check the bottom on show similar thread but its not working is there any other option that has to be checked.

      I have done following

      Show Similar Threads? = yes

      Automatic Similar Thread Search = yes


      Similar Threads Relevance Threshold = 3.5

          Is your board new? On mine it took a few hundred posts before the similar threads started showing.

            You can play with the setting and you can figure out why it is set that way?
            If you set high number or low it will show any kind of info or next to nothing, you have to test it to see what I mean.

              You might have to run the rebuild similar threads thing under Maintenance -> Update Counters

                You also need to go to Vbulletin Options / Thread Display Options (Showthread) and select "yes" for "Show Similar Threads?".

                You've enabled the search function, now you just need to display the results.

                    I've followed all the instructions here but I'm still not see anything, no Similar Threads table like on this site or anything. I just imported my forums from Ikonboard and there are almost 3000 posts.

                      You need to generate the data. Go to your VB admin control panel, Maintenance, Update Counters. You need to "Rebuild Similar Threads", then they will appear.
