  1. I can't THANK YOU enough for posting this– i have been searching and searching for a good related posts plugin that lists the images horizontally…

    I tweeted this out to the world as well so hopefully others can have the same Euphoric moment i did—

    Thank you!!

  2. I'm very new at using WordPress. I installed IGIT Related Posts and I found that the posts were not actually related at all. Maybe I had some settings wrong, I'm not sure. I ended up installing Efficient Related Posts instead, and I find that it works much better.

  3. Hey there,

    Ideally the plugin works great if the settings are setup properly. Else the next best option is the one i use on this blog :YARP (yet another related posts) plugin.



  4. Hi, Amazed by your blog design, especially the combi of colors. I'm an amateur freak in almost all aspects that you are into, nut 10yrs less experience than you :P. I'm just recognizing the potential of web media and bloggers like you are an inspiration.

    btw, the twitter link provided (below this comment section) in red color link is given the link of feeds.

    • Hey Venkat,

      Thanks a ton for your kind words man! Am glad if I could move you to the slightest bit.
      Wishing you all the best in your blogging and Internet ventures, Thanks for notifying on the twitter links, will change it.

      cheers, Josh

  5. Thanks Joshua, just the information I've been looking for IGIT installed and working! : )

    does any one can give me a related posts by title plugin

    i searched google and found this

    any one try it??

    is it ok or not?

    download link from

  13. Thanks for this… I'll give it a try. :)

  14. Thanks for information on one of the top WP plugin. Good effort.

  15. I'm amazed nobody has come up with a sidebar widget for top posts that has a thumbnail next to each post. Blogger has had one for several years, and it's irritating me that I can't find one for WP :) (Overall, even though all my sites are on WP, I still think Blogger works better for a lot of things).

    Thanks for sharing Joshu. I will check them out immediately and make my pick.
