    Hi there,

    I'd like to display a list of posts that share the tags of the current post. Not as keywords but as list of Post tiles.

    Also, I'd like to accompany the post titles with the data from a custom field.

    Something like this in the body of the current post is what I'm aiming for:

    • 1984
      "Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating?"
    • Ghostbusters
      "Well that's just great. Either I have a monster in my kitchen or I'm completely crazy."
    • Jaws
      "We're going to need a bigger boat."

    I'm drawing a blank on this at the moment so any pointers would be a big help.


  2. @Matt_Byrne, Yet Another Related Posts Plugin is able to pull up posts based on common tags as well as other criteria, but it currently can only show an excerpt aside from the post title. The ability to show other metadata, such as post date or custom fields, is coming in the next revision, due out in about a month.

    Thanks for the reply Mitch, the plugin looks good.

    As it turns out the architecture of the site has changed, so I don't need to use tags. However, I would like to find a good way of pulling out posts (and meta data) based on a tag.


  4. @Matt_Byrne - if you just want to display posts from a certain category, you should just write a custom query_post... be warned, though, it's a little tricky to get everything working if it's on the same page as another Loop.
