Good plugin for what it is intended for.
By , for WP 4.1.1

Was looking for a plugin to improve my internal linking and SEO on a new site and this is the best one I found. Works well so far. May slow down a large site but so far so good with my current project.

You can't disallow pages
By , for WP 4.1.1

You can select options to avoid posts by category or tag type but you can't disallow pages. So if you don't want your 'private policy' or pages that are behind a login to be listed, you can't manually exlude them.

Delivers as stated and experienced no issues.

This is a good plug-in. I recommend it.

Bad CSS
By , for WP 4.1

Overrides theme CSS with its own via !important declarations. Fix it!

The plugin does not work with pages attachments.

The plugin does not work with pages attachments. :( (Setting Automatically display related content from YARPP Basic on: Attachments)

Avoid. Causes problems
By , for WP 4.1

According to the plugin P3 that tests performance this took up alot of resources on my VPS. Avoid. It is a known resource hog. Better to use the built-in Jetpack related functionality.

Server Down
By , for WP 4.1

Be warned about this plugin especially if you have high traffic site. I installed this yesterday and my server went down the next day.

However, if you have low traffic site, this plugin should be fine. But avoid it as you can. I discovered another plugin that is not database intensive called jetpack. Go check it out.

Hogs resources and messes up theme files
By , for WP 4.0.1

I decided to uninstall this plugin after discovering it takes so much resources from my server (shared hosting environment).

Once I did that, I discovered to my horror that it messes up the sidebar on the single post template.

Apparently it ads a call to the single post template and 'forgets' to remove it after the plugin is removed.

If you just want to display related posts, the applicable module in Jetpack does the job great.
If you want to monetise by displaying posts from other sites, I'd use the 'related posts' module in Shareaholic.

Doesn't work very well
By ,

This plugin truncated my post titles and distorted images when it created thumbnails. And I don't see any customization options available borders, fonts, etc.

Very useful
By , for WP 4.0.1

I use this plugin in all my WordPress sites !
