tinyRelated

Description

A tiny and simple hackable plugin to manually assign and display related posts. Incudes a widget, a shortcode ([tinyrelated]), a couple of template tags (the_related_posts()/get_related_posts()) for easy integration.

You can pick up to 10 related posts via a meta box in Edit Post window. If no posts were selected, there is an option to display random posts instead. Currently, there is no automatic generation of related posts.

The plugin is translation ready and has Lithuanian translation.

Also try out my other plugins:

  • Gust – a Ghost-like admin panel for WordPress, featuring Markdown based split-view editor.
  • tinyCoffee – a PayPal donations button with a twist. Ask people to treat you to a coffee/beer/etc.
  • tinyTOC – automatic Table of Contents, based on H1-H6 headings in post content.
  • tinyIPPremium – stop WordPress users from sharing login information, force users to be logged in only from one device at a time.

An enormous amount of coffee was consumed while developing these plugins, so if you like what you get, please consider treating me to a cup. Or two. Or ten.

Installation

  1. Install via WP Admin > Plugins > Add New or download a .zip file and upload via FTP to /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. (optional) Modify options via WP Admin > Settings > tinyRelated, if needed. Plugin automatically embeds related posts list to the end of post content, but you can use a widget, a shortcode ([tinyrelated]), a couple of template tags (the_related_posts()/get_related_posts()) for other integration options.

FAQ

Does it pick related posts automatically

Not at the moment. If no posts are picked manually, it will show random posts by default (can be turned off in Settings).
