Needs an external service
By , for WP 3.8.1

I installed this plugin only to find out that it needs an external service to function.

If this plugin simply had the option of getting related posts without using a 3rd party I would think it would have been much popular.

ALERT!! Your /uploads/ holder will be filled...
By , for WP 3.6

Well, my previous review is needed to be changed.

I've found out that the /wp-content/uploads/ in the FTP will be filled with a lot of different sizes of pics(thumbnails), month by month, year by year, which are auto generated by this plug-in......I DON'T LIKE IT AT ALL.

But, if you don't care about it, this plug-in is actually looking good...

>>It looks very good!!

Nope...
By ,

It has the potential to be a nice plugin. But then the developers seem to have gotten all greedy. This plugin doesn't really work because weird thumbnail images display instead of your own, no matter WHAT you do to try and fix it. I haven't had the issue of it displaying outside links on this plugin.

However, when you go and get support for THIS plugin about the thumbnail issue, you're told to go get their newer and better related posts plugin.

Only problem is...THAT plugin forces you to join a service and display posts from external website. Um....no.

So this seems like a really shoddy and underhanded way of offering something for "free" on WordPress. I don't like your tactics and I don't like the way you are handling it. If I wanted to get slimed by a used car salesman, I'd go buy a used car. Instead, I'm just going to delete all of your plugins.

Bad dog.

Not cool guys. This is the perfect example of over aggressive marketing. I understand you want to make some money but if you're going to do that just make a separate plugin and sell it on codecanyon.

Sneaky added links
By , for WP 3.5.1

After the upgrade, I noticed they snuck in their links and gave no option of removing them.

Also, they show ugly stock images on posts with no images or small images and there's no way to remove them.

Dropping this plugin, very uncool.

the upgrade sucks
By , for WP 3.5.1
  • insert a link without any annoucement
  • enven after I disable thumbnails, there still images befor titles.
  • Can you keep it simple ?

    I hate it
    By , for WP 3.5.1

    I was using the plug in just fine, when I came to my site today and noticed it's promoting paid and external content.

    I don't run my blog as a business, nor do I want to volunteer to promote other people's business ventures, so I'm uninstalling it.
