    Hey, thanks for reaching out, I'll gladly help you out, but I'm not sure what you have in mind.

    Do you wish to only have your related posts on the homepage, but not inside the blog posts? Or the other way around?

    I'm really sorry for understanding your inquiry, but please do let me know what's up and I'll do my best to help you out! I'm looking forward to your reply!

    Best,
    Silvo

    Hey, sorry I made a typo in that last sentence of mine:

    I'm really sorry for *not* understanding your inquiry, but please do let me know what's up and I'll do my best to help you out!

    But I am looking forward to your reply, since I'm quite eager to help! :)

    Sorry for my english,

    i mean:

    - i have <?php wp_related_posts()?> for single post and i set the limit (12) of post on dashboard of plugin;

    - now i wanted to insert <?php wp_related_posts()?> in home page too, but with different limit (3) of post.

    Hey, thanks for getting back to me, much appreciated, really! And no need to apologize for anything, since my English isn't that perfect as well. :)

    But I am sorry to say that this is currently impossible. You can set a lower number of your related posts so that it is the same on your home page as well as inside your blog posts, but they cannot be two different set of numbers. Sorry & I hope you understand.

    But do let me know if you have any more questions or if there's anything else you need assistance with, since I'll do it gladly!

    Take care & have a nice weekend ahead!

    Best,

    Hello,

    to solve the problem i can install nrelated plugin for single post page and your plugin for home page.

    or...

    Could i install 2 your plugin with different name? If yes, what file i must modify?

    Hey, hm, well, yes, there is that other option. If you install our other related posts plugin called 'Related Posts by Zemanta' (which is basically identical to the one you are already using), then this option is possible, yes.

    You can have one plugin to show related posts inside the blog posts and the other one to show only a couple on the home page (with the correctly inserted shortcode).

    Here's the link to that other plugin:

    Please be careful which shortcode you are using, since those two plugins are using two different ones. And make sure to un-tick that box next to "Auto Insert Related Posts" box, before copy&pasting its shortcode to the right file.

    And do let me know if you have any more questions or if you need any additional assistance — I'll gladly help!

    Take care & I'm looking forward to the results!

    Best,

    Solved!

    Only a little bit, with Related post by Zemanda plugin, the thumbnail don't show with internet explorer but with Chrome no problem.

    Thanks!
