Random Related Posts

Description

The plugin provides a sidebar widget with customisable title and number of related posts to display.
The widget will display a random list of x number of posts ( selected in widget options ) together with a small tag including the publish date and author.
If used outside of a specific category the widget will default to all categories, whilst still displaying the selected number of random posts.
