A widget that simply gives you related posts by taxonomy. It provides four
settings to customize every widget and there are no global settings to worry
- The title of the widget (default: Related Posts)
- The taxonomy by which terms the posts are related (default: Tags)
- How many related posts to show (default 5)
- excludet terms
The widget is visible only when
is_single() is true, it doesn’t shows up on
archives, search templates etc.

Q. How to add thumbnail images to the related posts list
A. You can add the ‘simply_related_posts_title’ filter, like
add_filter( ‘simply_related_posts_title’, ‘my_related_posts’, 10, 2);
The first argument is a post-object for the related post, the second argument
is the widget instance.
