I uploaded v1.8.6 of Contextual Related Posts to the WordPress.org repository.
Contextual Related Posts is a powerful plugin for WordPress that allows you to display a list of related posts on your website and in your feed.
If you have any questions / bug reports, please post them in the WordPress support forums. I check these regularly. And, while you’re around there, why not write a good review for the plugin?
This version of Contextual Related Posts brings a much needed cache system, thanks to code from flynsarmy. Related posts will automatically be cached as visitors browse through your site. This is not enabled by default, but you can turn this on under “General options”.
The update also adds a new function
get_crp_posts that returns the list of posts in an array. And, also a new shortcode
[ crp ] (without the spaces) to display the related posts wherever you want within the content area.
As usual existing users of the plugin can update it directly from within the WordPress dashboard of your blog. If you’re not an existing user of CRP, why don’t you download it today and give it a test drive?

Awesome. Thanks for the Cache option. That helps me plenty! BTW how do you style the code so it looks more like yours? I want horizontal related posts with images to appear on my site too.
Oh, never mind. I used the styling code suggested on the WordPress support forum, found here: http://kevin.deldycke.com/2012/04/beautify-contextual-related-posts-wordpress-plugin/, and I set the options to NOT show the posts excerpts. This seems to have worked for me.
Thanks again. Great plugin!
