    Contextual Related Posts and Top 10 updated

    I was going through a rather interesting post that Jeff made on WP Tavern. There has been a lot of discussion about credit links in plugins and themes. While themes have been more painful due to the links being misused for sponsored links. Both Contextual Related Posts and Top 10 have credit links, where I provide the user the option to turn off the credit link. In this version of both these plugins I have changed the default option to off. This means that the plugins on first installation will no longer link back to my site. However, this option will not change if you upgrade. So, you’ll need to…

    Where did they go from here? v1.3.1

    I’ve just uploaded Where did they go from here v1.3.1 to the repository. This plugin will show "Readers who viewed this page, also viewed" links on your page. The one and major change is a one liner of code that I had missed in my earlier release. Unfortunately, the old release would not have tracked any new hits. So, please upgrade to this version immediately. I have a new version on the cards that improves thumbnail detection and with better support for non-standard WordPress installations, i.e. where the wp-content or plugin folders have been moved from their normal locations.
