Stopped at YARPP 4.0.6, which still happens to work
By , for WP 4.3.1

I'm not the fastest at updating things on my tiny site. I missed the 4.0.7 update and was presented with 4.0.8, which reverted a change that invisibly scraped information from plugin users. This is prohibited by WordPress plugin guidelines, but is routinely done by the WordPress core itself.

I watched as advertising and revenue-generation became the focus of 4.1 and 4.2. I stayed at 4.0.6. And, just by dumb luck, this saved my bacon - I am running WordPress 4.3.1 and YARPP 4.0.6 together just fine.

rating downgraded
By , for WP 4.2.2

Used to love the plugin, but the limitation on database type (see numerous support posts) has caused me to downgrade to 3 stars. :-(

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.

Slow and not fully functional
By , for WP 4.0.1

I found the plugin to be really slow in generating related posts. And I could not get it to include the title as part of the criteria. That drop-down is disabled.

The Pro version just made things worse and didn't contribute to anything other than making things even slower than the basic version.

The whole settings section was extremely confusing.

Nice, but I you can't exclude specific pages.
By , for WP 3.6.1

Good plugin but a major flaw needs to be fixed. There are certain pages that shouldn't be used as related content, right now it's using all pages. Supposedly you can Disallow by Category in the plugin settings page but that is not ideal for pages.

The plugin developer should implement a a new setting to exclude certain pages for being used via specific page ID numbers.

Excluded Page ID's (separate each page ID with a comma) [95,109,21]

It's been discussed and requested here but the suggestions don't help:

Very good, but shortcodes missing
By , for WP 3.5.1

Great functionality, but shortcode feature has been abandoned. I think this is a great pitty and should be reconsidered.

I would rate this plugin "5 Stars" if this feature was re-introduced.

not enough options
By , for WP 3.5.1

I tested out the plugin but is didn't work for what I wanted. It's well made but could use some options. I started using manual related posts because I can choose what related posts I want displayed instead of it being chosen for me.
If YARRP added that I would use it, as manual related post does not offer suggestions like YARRP does

Great accuracy but...
By , for WP 3.5.1

Buggy. Images doesnt show in "thumbnail mode".
