Support » Plugins and Hacks » Related Post Plugin with images

  • Hi I’m setting up a blog and I’m looking for a related posts plugin that will also display images associated with the related posts. To show you what I mean, please take a look the posts below from CoolHunting as an example.

    The related posts listing on the bottom also had thumbnails. How can I accomplish this? I’m guessing WASABI would not be able to accomplish this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Here’re my views after checking the above site:

    1. The site is displaying post excerpt, and within the excerpt range, they’ve images inside post.
    2. You can use Wasabi’s Related Post, and configure to show excerpt, rather than only a post title.
    Note: Make sure, you’ve image within the excerpt lenght that you’ve defined in step 2.

    That’s not too helpful. CoolHunting doesn’t show the images contextually, and if one WERE to, it would look messy. Besides, wouldn’t it not show a thumbnail, but the full image?

    I’ve worked with plugins to do this on a small or just starting site where one can define the exact image for the post thumb, but now I’m looking to implement it on a HUGE blog, and I can’t add a custom field to every entry.

    If you don’t mind doing it the other way, let me know and I’ll send you something I edited, but I edited it to display it like a store. I’d have to re-hack it down a bit. 🙂

    And there was one plugin that did this, but it never worked for me….. seems it’s disappeared now… I can’t find it, it’s on a celebrity blog, sort of unrelated har har…

    I am looking to do the exact same thing? Anyone know a solution?
