Recent Posts Widget Extended
Feature request: tweak to display only related posts (4 posts)

    This widget is so good I am using it 15 times on my site (I would rather use it once!)

    This is because the two fields

    * Limit to category
    * Limit to tag

    Do not have the option "same as current post". If they did this widget would do everything I need from a "related posts" plugin as well as "recent posts".

    I am willing to have a go at doing this (my first ever PHP development) or test someone else's patch.

    * can you give me some pointers to how best to do this?

    I actually working on a new plugin to display related post types(shortcode or widget to display it). But, I stop the development for a while because I've another important job :)
