    I tried to install the following plugin that diplays related posts :

    I ran the setup script to create the required a full text database index but it did not work.

    As explained in the readme file, I then used PHPMyAdmin to
    execute the following command :

    ALTER TABLE wp_posts ADD FULLTEXT post_related (
    post_name ,

    But all I got is this error message :

    #1061 - Duplicate key name 'post_related'

    May someone help me ? I don't know how to solve this problem.

    Many thanks,

    That error should just mean the post_related index already exists in the table. Have you run the query twice?

    Is the plugin not working? If no, try this:

    ALTER TABLE wp_posts DROP INDEX post_related

    Then redo your query from above.
