Too much styling, doesn't fit.
By , for WP 4.0

The plugin is pretty good, except for the hacky implementation of "!important" for all the CSS rules. And the thumbnail layout does not use percantages - it uses fixed widths. So that layout doesn't properly fit my theme nor is it responsive.

I don't know why it forces the h3 tag to be bold, and the post titles. Mine aren't supposed to be bold... Why would that setting be forced?

Nice

I like it.

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.

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;}

Almost perfect
By , for WP 3.6

Almost perfect plugin. Customizable, simple and integrates into the themes without problem. It lacks support for MySQL InnoDB table engine to get 5 stars.

Does the job alright
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin does the job alright.

Few formatting issues I have with it:
When displaying thumbnails, I'd prefer it to maybe grab the thumbnail instead of the featured image because the featured image isn't necessarily in a square so when resized it will display funny. Also, when it doesn't show the max number of related posts, it would be nice if the related posts resized to fill the full width.

Technically, it seems to work ok.

I don't really have time to research other plugins right now so it'll do for now.

works a treat
By , for WP 3.5.2

Does what is says and add links nicely at bottom. I like the new image feature although I'm not currently using it :)

Works fine for me.
By , for WP 3.5.1

Only had a minor issue about MyISAM not been enable. But I think that it was harmless. I am happy with its results
