    Hey all,

    three questions.

    just tried manual installation with "<?php echo related_posts(); ?>" -. worked out, but the posts where shown twice ;(

    Also, custom css changes i made within the css editor of my theme wheren`t submitted (its working when using automatic mode)

    can anyone help out for 1st and 2nd issue. would really like to replaye the related function within my theme.

    thx so much

    Hi fredel. Remove "echo" and just use <?php related_posts(); ?> and see if that removes the duplicates.

    For (2), what do you mean by "not submitted"? Are your CSS changes not saving, or saving but not appearing in the code, or appearing in your code but not having any effect?

    Also, do you mind telling me how you heard about YARPP using this short survey? http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z278L88

    Appreciate it!

    hey jeff!

    @1: perfect, worked out!
    @2: i added "!important" to the css changes, not nice but works :)

    another question: is there a way to optimize the thumbnails "Losslessly compressing"? i looked at the FAQ but didn`t found the right answer!
    e.g. http://www.bergtour-online.de/bergtouren/bergwanderungen/leicht/partnachklamm/

    its always loading the full image, is there a trick? (change picture size in functions.php ot s.th like that, sorry weak in this :))

    thx so far and very much!!!!!

    The link you provided is still showing duplicates, but the top set of images are close to optimized and the bottom set is not.

    Let's see what happens when you no longer display duplicates.

    hey jeff,

    yes, currently working around :)
    now just the yarpp posts are shown.

    i changed a little bit the size etc, but i think it doesnt generate thumbnails. do you have an idea?

    thx so much for great support!

    sorry, i was blind, just added:

    * YARPP Thumbnails
    define('YARPP_GENERATE_THUMBNAILS', true);
    add_image_size( 'yarpp-thumbnail', 149, 90, true );

    to functions.php and it is working perfect! do you see any disadvantages?

    thx so much.

    Glad it's working!

    Each time you change YARPP's thumbnail dimensions like this, you will probably want to have WordPress regenerate appropriate sized thumbnails for all of your images. I recommend the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin for this purpose: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/
