Works out of the box, easy to customize
By ,

This worked like a charm on my blog with custom post types, a woocommerce shop (although I disabled that to keep free content and paid content in their own worlds) - this plugin delivers related content across the whole site and allows me to choose what to include - which is exactly what I wanted. A lot of backend layout options too, which is nice.

Doesn't seem to slow down the page load time like some similar plugins - for that I am thankful. Nice to have built-in caching. Easy to customize via some quick CSS inserted into my child theme's stylesheet... nice that it comes with a custom css box though, for those who don't have a child theme already set up.

Thanks for your work with this plugin - I appreciate it! I've posted a credit on the bottom of my About page with a link to this plugin page; if you would prefer a different link or some other way of crediting, I'm happy to change it up.

Best of the related link plugins

... and great support as well.

Love it - works better than anything else

Been using this for quite a bit now on our news network in place of any in house solution, theme solution, etc. We use it without images, but is superb for grabbing, then caching related items so we can show "more stuff to read" on 10 years of news items. With some sites we set it to show stuff from forever, and some only past year. Nice. Caching as custom field is awesome.

No malware, no sneaky code crap. It works.

Light weight, great style and flexible.

This plugin saves me almost 500 ms on load time from Jetpack which I can now uninstall. It works with my custom post types and l love the style. I sent in my donation and lets all support good programming. Great product.

Happy :-)

After nRelate shut down, I spent hours looking for a good replacement. I tried over a dozen plugins but had challenges with every one . . . until I found Contextual Related Posts. I use WP as a website more than a blog, so I have mostly pages (not posts). I like that this plugin is highly customizable and can accommodate my need to pull related pages. Also, the support is awesome!

The best I've ever installed

I tested a lot of plugins to show related posts on my pages! It is crucial to increase engagement and keep user on site.
Contextual Related Posts is the one that did/do the job very well for me! It shows related posts really contextual reading to text body without requesting you to make changes to your database (which is a risk of loosing your data)!

Great plugin!

After testing a LOT of plugins this is the way I chose to install for my recommended posts in the sidebar. Even though there are not too many possibilities to change the algorithm for recommended posts: it delivers the best results.

Great support, too!
