Top 10 v1.8.1 and Contextual Related Posts v1.7.1

About 2 weeks back I released a minor update to Top 10. This is a minor update that fixes the links in the Dashboard widgets when you login to your WP-Admin.

I have been working on an update for Contextual Related Posts to incorporate some of the changes in Top 10, especially related to thumbnail support. A summary of changes in v1.7 and 1.7.1 are:

1.7.1
  • Fixed: Minor bug fix for location of thumbnail
1.7
  • Added: New function related posts() that allows you to manually add posts to your theme
  • Added: Support for Video Thumbnails plugin
  • Added: Thumbnail settings now reflect max width and max height instead of fixed width and height
  • Added: Option to display thumbnails before or after the title
  • Added: Option to not display thumbnails instead of the default thumbnail
  • Added: Plugin now uses InnoDB instead of MyISAM if your server is running mySQL v5.6 or higher
  • Modified: Cleaner Settings page interface
  • Modified: Updated FAQ page

This update is the first step towards adding in better support for styling the list, which has been the biggest request from most users of the plugin.

I have also added a wishlist for features I would like to add in future versions. As usual, suggestions and feature requests are welcome and will be implemented as soon as practicable.
