I am a big fan of Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP) which is the best WordPress related posts plugin available today. However, quite recently I started using a widget from Linkwithin. The plus point of Linkwithin widget was that it displayed images along with the related posts.
Linkwithin did a pretty good job with the widget. However, I was not entirely satisfied with it as the related posts were no where near as good as what YARPP showed.
To my joy, I did find a nice tutorial that allows you to create a custom YARPP template that will make it look quite similar to a Linkwithin widget.
We also have it in action on this very blog and our also in our RSS feed. At the end of the post you will see a custom YARPP template in action, which displays images along with the related posts.
If you want to build a similar related posts section visit this tutorial from Build Internet to create related posts with thumbnails. You can choose to style your related posts in any way by customizing the CSS code.
If you are not keen to make code changes, you can make use of other WordPress plugins that perform the same job.
