Fast, related, good styling. Came here after the demise of nrelate after having tried a bunch of others. Have yet to find something better.
I'm not sure why this isn't included in all the "best related posts plugin" articles, as it's easily one of the best. I tried out a heap of them (unable to use Jetpack's) and ended up coming back to this one, as it has the best combination of styling and retrieving actual related posts. The developer is also really responsive and helpful, which always makes a big difference.
I had a small issue where when I changed the featured image the related post wasn't updated, the developer suggesting deleting the plugin and reinstalling, and after doing that a few time it seems to work now. My only criticism would be to have more options for styling.
While I wasn't super wild about the default design, I was able to make the modifications I needed, and I really like this plugin for its functionality and what it allows one to do to tweak the design elements.
Unfortunately, I read about the issues people have on WP Engine for this plugin, and another of Ajay's. This got me wondering about my client's WordPress-focused host, Media Temple, and whether it was like WP Engine, and sure enough it's on their disallowed list. ("These plugins increase database load by using inefficient queries, poor caching, or poor scaling on large sites.") Disappointed that I will have to find something else that probably won't look as slick for my client. Bummer.
if default thumb is not specified, we get:
What to do with that?
