Site Update: Related Posts Feature

June 21st, 2010

As a navigational feature I’ve added a “related posts” feature below each post. You can see this when you click into a post to comment or see it in action here. Right now the relatedness is set pretty loosely but as new posts come in I’ll try and refine the results.

This should be a handy new feature so feel free to let me know what you think.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I actually got a Featured Posts section working with a plugin. It took a little tinkering but I got it to work. Its similar to yours so I’m sure you could use it. You can define the thumbnail size, it automatically creates it for you (though you can replace the made one if you like something better) and so on. It’s the featured-post-with-thumbnail plugin.
