Contextual Related Posts v1.8.1 and v1.8.2 and v1.8.3


Update: v1.8.2 and v1.8.3 fixes some PHP warning errors

I have just released v1.8.1 of Contextual Related Posts. This release incorporates many user requests I have received since v1.8 including widget support and exclusion of pages and posts by ID. This complements the exclude by categories option.

Changes in 1.8.1

  • Added: Widget support. Widget display follows the same settings as having the related posts after content.
  • Added: Exclude posts and pages by ID
  • Modified: Optimised performance when automatic insertion into content is turned off
  • Modified: Plugin uses the default excerpt if it is set, else it creates one based on content. Both settings respect the excerpt length set in the plugin
  • Modified: Fixed some language related issues. If you would like to translate the plugin or update a translation, please contact me.
  • Deleted: Redundant option to exclude display of the related posts on pages. You can use the custom post types feature instead
  • Added: Chinese language file

If you are already using the plugin, as usual you can upgrade to v1.8.1 from within WordPress. If you’re not using the plugin, you can get it from the WordPress page.

  1. Thank you Ajay for creating a very simple and yet effective related posts plugin.

    I was looking for one that really gives related content and yours is the best so far. I have tried others (linkwithin, nrelate, etc) but the related content they display are not so related most of the time.

    Yours also seems to be the most light weight (I stopped using YARPP because it added a few seconds of load time).

    Thanks again!
