Breaks SSL
By ,

Their API doesn't support SSL connection which makes this plugin useless for now. In addition, it finds not-so relevant posts if the content is not in English.

Awful
By , for WP 3.9.1

The plugin is not working at all for me, I'm left with the error message "No Related Post" although I am sure of there certainly are related posts. I've tried tweaking the setting as well, changing the default "match threshold" to something low such as "1" and in addition changing the settings to "consider" where this is possible. Still nothing. Very disappointed.

I will change my rating once this issue gets fixed. Please fix it.

Does not work
By , for WP 3.9.1

Installed and went through settings. Checked my posts and the plugin did not show any related posts for any of them. Looks like others have the same problem. Not worth trying to troubleshoot just going to install yet another related-post plugin... hah! Maybe that's why it was given the name it has? As per other negative reviews, I'm sure the author will comment on how I've done something wrong or should spend my time with their support to get it working... Guess what? The next related-post plugin I just tried worked the first time. Cya!

i used it a while, until i realized it wasn't really working and only displaying some articles over some for no logical explanation (categories worked for 1/5 article or something..)

Was a great plugin, not anymore
By , for WP 3.9.1

YARPP was a great WordPress plugin. Unfortunately it has been very unreliable and slow for me lately, with updates breaking all kinds of things, from disappearing post titles to runtime errors.

Please do more testing before releasing updates!

Doesn't show related posts
By , for WP 3.6.1

I read a lot of positive reviews, but it doesn't show any related posts as I wanted. This is only the downside of the plugin. Option changes aren't instant and is stressful to wait for many days until the plugin starts to output related posts (or not in my case). I also used Experiments addon, and flushed cache, but it kept showing "no related posts" although I know there must be related posts with the same category and tag.

With respect to developer's work, but it's better to manually set related posts than using this plugin after all. Or maybe this plugin should offer such function, then I'm sure a lot of WP users get more benefit of using this plugin, I'd use it as I like Yarpp.
