I know a lot of you have been waiting for an update for a long time, so sorry that it took me a while.. but I’m pretty sure the new features I have added will make up for it!
Added support for thumbnails
By very popular demand, you can now switch on an option on the plugin’s settings page to display the build-in thumbnails with your related posts. You can also select the size of the plugins displayed, depending on what sizes your theme supports.
Added support for manually ordering related posts
Thanks to the contribution of a friendly user (if your reading this: please contact me because I lost your contact details a while ago) you can now manually arrange the order in which related posts are displayed. This was very frequently asked for, so I’m very happy to release this.
Fixed bug in widget that broke the theme’s widget container and title HTML
The HTML for the container of a the Related Posts widget didn’t completely fit the standards, causing the widget to break in some themes. This has been fixed in version 4.0
Added a better way of implementing the AJAX search
I have implemented a new way in which the AJAX search works in the Related Posts box on the post edit screen. This should fix problems people were having when their wp-config.php file was placed outside the web root.
Added a default CSS file for basic styling
With the new feature of displaying thumbnails, I thought it’d be a good idea to add some basic CSS styles that are loaded automatically with your theme. But don’t worry, if you are one of those people who hates extra server requests: this can easily be switched off through the plugin’s settings page.
Improved the layout of the Related Posts box on the post edit page
I’ve revamped the Related Posts box a little, to fit the current WordPress admin design a little better, and to make it even more user friendly.
I really hope you guys like all the new features. Please let me know in the comments below if you run in any trouble.
Don’t forget to rate the plugin in the WordPress plugin directory. And of course, any donations for my work are highly appreciated! (see the PayPal box on the right of this page)
