Display related posts on your WordPress blog and feed. Supports thumbnails, shortcodes, widgets and custom post types!
This plugin does what it should and comes with a lot of settings to configure properly. Also it is rather lightweight which makes it stand out performance-wise as well.
And if something doesn't work quite the way it should then the author is very forthcoming regarding fixing and optimizing the plugin.
If you like the plugin then consider supporting the development.
This is definitely my favorite plugin for displaying related content on posts and/or pages, and it supports custom post types as well. It features plenty of options for determining what content is related, and how to display it. The built in CSS is beautiful and blends attractively with most Themes.
Also, the developer is super-responsive.....it just doesn't get any better and best of all this is a free plugin.....I use it on nearly every site I develop!
Real related, and really good!
It's really perfect for me.
Easy to configure. Great for referral traffic.
And simple enough.
You can see the sample:
At the end of a post I want to give readers options and this post does the best job of any I have tried over the years. Posts are picked due to content, not popularity. Readers are more likely to click something relevant to the post they just finished reading. That's how I read other blogs and I expect most other people do the same.
Great, sensible plugin that works and gets updated.
This plugin worked beautifully upon activation. I tested a couple of related post plugins, and wasn't happy with the posts they were relating. This one gave me good, relevant results without any fiddling. I wanted to tweak the color of the related post text, and the plugin author thoughtfully included a custom CSS area to do just that. Great job, and excellent functionality.
Your plugin is great. Easy to configure. Great for referral traffic.
What can I say... plugin works out of the box.
What did it for me was the provided API. You can easily customize the whole output with your own html.
Even without that (which was all I needed), the provided options provide great amount of customization.
Awesome sauce all around.
I needed a related posts plugin that gives relevant posts based on content and Contextual Related Posts does a very good job combinate with it's Category and Tag subplugin. With a good cache plugin, no slowness to show.
Support is very good and Ajay explained me how to use the plugin with the related posts template of my theme: so I've got perfect presentation and efficient related posts.
I can't tell you how gorgeous this plugin is. I used nRelate for several years, and then they went out of business. I was left searching for a related posts plugin and none of them seemed to suit my needs. They all had too much focus on advertising, too little customization...
Then I found this plugin. Contextual Related Posts has everything I need. The default styling (with the "Style attributes" radio button checked) looks absolutely AMAZING on my site. And I have complete control over the thumbnails. I love this plugin!
