Default Using the products widget (problem?)

Hi! I'm using the products widget in the sidebar on my site (not my shop page, if that distinction matters) and have the settings set to show a product list, with the product selection set to "Use request url".

Perhaps I'm not using this widget correctly, but when viewing a page/post on my site, the product list the widget is showing me lists random products that have nothing to do with my page at all and aren't really related.

How can I make the product widget highly customized to the page the user is viewing, without needing to create a specific widget for every single post I make?

Ideally, I would love it if I can make it so that the user is viewing a post regarding a product on my site and in the sidebar, the products widget would show that same product from my shop.

Hi

That's how the product widget works. It simply displays 3 random products from your store.

Unfortunately it's not possible to make the widget contextual.

I understand but then what is the use request URL setting for?? I read the tooltip explaining it and it sounds like its what I'm looking for.

Hi

Actually, in this case, nothing. It's just going to return random products (or products sorted in the order you've specified).
