I used my own CSS to format the plugin to a more stylish transparent overlay of the title on the image and opacity of the image only on hover. The plugin works perfectly and does exactly what I need to show related posts for a custom post type I'm using. I did have to enable the plugin via php in a custom page, otherwise it would produce random results. Although any issues were not too major to resolve by myself, better support for this plugin would have been welcomed. That aside, recommended!
