    Hi. I see that this plugin hasn’t been updated in 2 years. I’m considering the premium account but want to make sure it will all work with an Elementor website. Please let me know if it should work as advertised using a page builder.

  • I’ve been a Premium user of ‘Related Posts for WordPress’ for 6 years I think. But as you pointed out, it hasn’t been updated in the last 2 years, and the Premium subscription being yearly, this means that I’ve been paying lately without nothing in return. This month, I’m moving away from ‘Related Posts for WordPress’. At this point, this plugin is like a car that has been gathering dust in a barn for 2 decades. Sure, you could buy it, and maybe you could get the engine to start (if you’re really lucky), but don’t expect to get a lot of milage out of it. Better invest in a serviced car. I’m personally moving to ‘Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP)’, which is actively updated and free (although price is not an object for me). I was actually on ‘YARPP’ before ‘Related Posts for WordPress’, but I switched thinking that Premium plugins are better serviced than Free ones. 6 years later, this turned out to be a mistake.

    Hey @vickistep ,

    Thanks for your interest in Related Posts for WP. Our has the option to output your related posts automatically or via a shortcode, so you can make it work with your pagebuilder either way. If it turns out it doesn’t work the way you expected it to work, you can always get a full refund within 14 days of your purchase.

    Kind regards,

    @multipartisme I’m sorry to hear that! It’s true that there haven’t been technical updates in a while but we do still support our plugin. We help customers set up our plugin every day via our premium support channel. The lack of updates is partly due to our current focus on other work/plugins and the fact that Related Posts for WP (Premium) works as intended. If a website-breaking bug would be found, we would of course solve it ASAP.

    @barrykooij If you go to the WordPress Plugins portal, and search for ‘related posts’, your plug-in now comes up on the 2nd or 3rd page of results. It used to be the very top result. This is because WordPress punishes out-of-date plugins through search rank. There are unintended consequences to child neglect. You say you still care for your child, but the fact that you haven’t seen her/him for 2 years says otherwise. Anyway, I will stop squatting @vickistep ’s post, and sounding all negative. I’m mostly just sad to say farewell to the plugin that I’ve seen grow. Adieu!

    @multipartisme I agree on it not being good practice to update at least the metadata for the plugin to make sure we keep the right position in search results and let out users know that all is still working and right.

    I appreciate your honest feedback and I’m sad to see you go. Please let me know if there’s a way I can help you to stay with us 🙂

    Kind regards,

    Barry Kooij
