Works straight out of the box but can quickly and easily be configured to work with custom post types and taxonomies. Great documentation also!
Good plugin but a major flaw needs to be fixed. There are certain pages that shouldn't be used as related content, right now it's using all pages. Supposedly you can Disallow by Category in the plugin settings page but that is not ideal for pages.
The plugin developer should implement a a new setting to exclude certain pages for being used via specific page ID numbers.
Excluded Page ID's (separate each page ID with a comma) [95,109,21]
It's been discussed and requested here but the suggestions don't help:
Activated, set options, nothing happened
Almost perfect plugin. Customizable, simple and integrates into the themes without problem. It lacks support for MySQL InnoDB table engine to get 5 stars.
When I first started using this, I remember that it was quite fiddly getting the CSS correct so things displayed nicely on my site (hardly the fault of the plugin). And of course - with a new site, there wasn't all that many posts to look at !
But now more than a year on, my site has grown and I'm continuously impressed at the accuracy of the suggestions it comes up with - as if I'd manually added them !
Amd while other plugins have come & gone, this one has stood the test of time - behaving itself and just getting on with the job.
There's a lot of "related posts" plugins. And there's even some social plugins with "related posts" options. I've used a few and honestly, this is the one I always come back to. It's a must use plugin for almost every single site I build. You can't go wrong with YARPP...seriously.
This plugin does the job alright.
Few formatting issues I have with it:
When displaying thumbnails, I'd prefer it to maybe grab the thumbnail instead of the featured image because the featured image isn't necessarily in a square so when resized it will display funny. Also, when it doesn't show the max number of related posts, it would be nice if the related posts resized to fill the full width.
Technically, it seems to work ok.
I don't really have time to research other plugins right now so it'll do for now.
Does precisely what you need it to, and is easy to configure.
