Very good plugin, only will be nice if the links could be edited, one can make a mistake and then we have to delete it and redo. Otherwise is a great plugin!

Does what it's supposed to, however...
By ,

The plugin works with WordPress version 3.5.1

Though I added some mark-up, I wanted to add a title above the links!
Here is a step guide on how I did this...

Step 1. Open related-links.php (found in /plugins/related-links/related-links.php.
Step 2. Add a new line 124, and past the following...<div class="related-links-title">YOUR TITLE:</div>
Step 3. Open style.css (found in plugins/related-links/css/style.css
Step 4. Add the following to the bottom of all the css styles...

.related-links-title {

(You can add whichever style suites your site)

All done! Have fun!

A big shout out to the plugin developer chabis... http://wordpress.org/support/profile/chabis

Straightforward and lightweight
By , for WP 3.5

This did the trick for me. I found "related posts" and other plugins that added thumbnails and javascript animation to be bloated. Because this plugin provides simple functions to get the related post object, adding the bells and whistles yourself is easy - and easier to customize in your theme - unlike some other plugins out there.

Added benefit - the 'search' in the editor includes custom post-types in the results.

Needs to be integrated with templates
By , for WP 3.5.1

Just too much of a hassle to integrate on each template; and every template update will remove those changes, so they will need to be inserted again every time there is a template update.

The admin side is nice, but on the client side it needs to be put by hand where you want the link to show up. This could (and should) be automatic like other plugins do (ex: Manual Related Posts), no edits should be needed manually on the templates code.

Top notch Plugin

This plugin saved me a lot time hacking around... The UI is very intuitive and well thought out... The flexibility of displaying the content by type is great... Nice job.
