Works out of the box...
By , for WP 3.8

I have used this plugin on-and-off for years, and I have to say after a long hiatus from WordPress, coming back to use a plugin of this quality is incredibly impressive and refreshing.

Works out of the box, and the ability to use templates from your theme is very impressive!

Works right out of the box!

Works well
By , for WP 3.7.1

Simple enough to install and customize which posts/pages you want displayed. With a little CSS magic you can have it looking great on your site. I don't think the plugin finds the most relevant posts every time, but given that this is a fairly light tool that doesn't bog down your site, I think it does the job well.

I like it

this plugin works great with post types

Doesn't show related posts
By , for WP 3.6.1

I read a lot of positive reviews, but it doesn't show any related posts as I wanted. This is only the downside of the plugin. Option changes aren't instant and is stressful to wait for many days until the plugin starts to output related posts (or not in my case). I also used Experiments addon, and flushed cache, but it kept showing "no related posts" although I know there must be related posts with the same category and tag.

With respect to developer's work, but it's better to manually set related posts than using this plugin after all. Or maybe this plugin should offer such function, then I'm sure a lot of WP users get more benefit of using this plugin, I'd use it as I like Yarpp.

Love this plugin, especially with upprev
By , for WP 3.7.1

Thanks for the great plugin! I'm using it with upprev plugin and everything works like a charm!

Only one issue found: upprev box still shows up, when no related posts found. The upPrev's plugin developer says it's already fixed in future version, but I couldn't wait and found the solution by myself. Check this out here. Hope it will be useful.

No thumbnail size option
By , for WP 3.7.1

It would have been a 5 if the plugin allows for setting the thumbnail size.

/* Reduces the title font size and displays more than two title lines */
.yarpp-thumbnail {height: 150px !important;}
.attachment-yarpp-thumbnail {height: 90px !important; width: 120px !important;}
.yarpp-thumbnail-title {font-size:0.8em !important; max-height: 4em !important;}
No related posts.

Related posts not showing at all.

Update: It was on localhost, on live site works ok.

Sweet and simple
By , for WP 3.7.1

Works grate no problems figuring out how to get it to work even though i am fairly new to WordPress.

I would like to see a few features added. Don't display Related posts section if there aren't any related post. And the ability to add a related post myself if the system didn't find one.

Keep up the good work :)
