I’d like to announce that I have updated my plugin Contextual Related Posts:
Display a list of contextually related posts for the current post.
You can select the number of posts to display and if you want to automatically display the related posts in your content / feed.
The new version of Connections Reloaded fixes a bug that didn’t allow you to modify the number of posts to display.
The major update has been the support for WordPress 2.9, especially the thumbnail support.
The plugin will first check if the post contains a thumbnail. If it doesn’t then it will check the meta field (configurable). If this is not available, then it will show the default image as specified in the options screen.
You can choose whether you want to display options, text or both.
I’ve also added support for configuring the output. You can choose exactly what HTML you want to use. The default settings are an unordered list.
