Display related posts on your WordPress blog and feed. Supports thumbnails, shortcodes, widgets and custom post types!
Contextual Related Posts is a powerful plugin for WordPress that allows you to display a list of related posts on your website and in your feed.
The list is based on the content of the title and/or content of the posts which makes them more relevant and more likely to be of interest to your readers. This allows you to retain visitors, reduce bounce rates and refresh old entries.
Although several similar plugins exist today, Contextual Related Posts is one of the most feature rich plugins with support for thumbnails, shortcodes, widgets, custom post types and CSS styles. The inbuilt cache ensures that you have related posts without excessive load on your server.
And the default inbuilt styles allow you to switch between gorgeous thumbnail-rich related posts or a similar text display!
