FAQ

Does this plugin use thumbnails for the related posts?

Yes. It uses the built-in WP post thumbnail or “feature image” for related posts thumbnails. The alignment and thumbnail size can be set in the options panel,
and thumbnails can also be disabled.

Does this plugin work with custom post types?

At the moment, it does not. I may add custom-post type support in the future, depending on user feedback.

Can I show related posts by tag or a custom taxonomy?

Not at this time. This is also a feature I may add in future versions.

Can I Choose the Number of Related Posts to Show?

Yes. This setting is available in the options panel. Nifty is configured to show up to 20 related posts.

Where Can I Get Support?

You may seek community support within the WordPress.org forums. I will try to monitor and assist as needed. If you need immediate, hands-on, paid support, please contact me through my website: www.edwardrjenkins.com

Reviews

Didn't work for me

Maybe it’s because the plugin hasn’t been updated in a long time, but there were two flaky things about this plugin. First, although it was supposed to call the default three related posts, it called five. Second, all the image links were broken. Instead of taking images from the posts themselves, it was trying to grab them from the theme directory.
