Aizatto's Related Posts v0.5 Released

Wow, I never thought my little Related Posts plugin would be so popular. It was just a hack for a better ‘Related Posts’.

Yes I’ve jumped a few release points as well! But remember this is still beta code to me :) .

Thanks to the people who tested it out for me, much appreciated :) .

But out of popular demand, I’ve fixed the code. Removed bugs, might have added some, but most importantly I’ve added more features which you people may or may not want.

For the moment I’ve removed the feature to use a page as a related post. Though this fixes the bug about having a ‘page’ appear as a related post :) , so I think most people might not mind.

For Old Users

[block:warning] If you’ve customized the CSS, please keep it somewhere safe when updating the file. You WILL destroy it if you overwrite the file.[/block]
[block:warning]The options are now saved under a different name so you’ll have to reapply your old options.[/block]

Don’t let these list of problems scare you if you are going to new to this plugin. It’s not a big thing, really.

New Features

  • Trim the length of your title
  • Limit to only showing related posts to the post’s page itself
  • Easier CSS customization, by moving it the administration menu
  • Made it possible to inject the php code, to customize where you want it placed. So basically like the old Related Posts Plugin
  • Mixture of posts with and without excerpts. For example, first 3 posts have excerpts, remaining 2 dont. So it doesn’t look as cluttered.

Features

  • Automatically inserts the ‘Related Posts’ to the bottom of your post
  • No need to inject SQL
  • Includes into the RSS feed
  • Customize apperance via CSS

Known Bugs

  • When installing, it may throw SQL errors. Though its not a big issue, and it still works. Still not working? Try a Force Install.

Future Ideas

  • Show Related Posts in the sidebar using widgets

Requirements:

  • None that I know off

How you can Help

To be honest, the administration front end could be better. Better choice of words, and layout. Especially the CSS section. Any advice?

Aizatto’s Related Posts Plugin Released

[block:important]25th May 2007: New version is available[/block]

Update (14th May 2007): This plugin is being updated, expect a new version in the next week or two.

So I’ve written another plugin, which has been used on my sites for quite a while already. I’ve adapted the Related Post plugin, and improved on it somewhat.

First of all the biggest change is you DO NOT need to modify your template files to include the Related Post section. It will go directly to the bottom of your post.

Besides that, it’s probably the same hubub.

The guys behind WordPress by Examples (disclaimer: friends of mine) have written a better description about this plugin.
