Display Images/Thumbnails With Related Posts in WordPress

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.

  • I have find a quick and easy to install and customize Recent Post Widget with thumbnails. You can install it in minute with hassle-free complicated manual code installation.

  • Wow…at last i found this article. i used YARPP and have the same problem. Thanks Keith and i'll try to customize the CSS code.

  • Turned it on for my blog. Let's see how it goes. It needs a bit more customization options though.

  • Nice post about YARPP Keith, and of course I like the use of post thumbnail instead of using only text.

    BTW, I made similar effort about YARPP too. It is also about post thumbnail. And I also made additional effort to overlay the text over the image on a transparent background.

    My implementation details can be found here: http://suhanto.net/yarpp-template-post-thumbnails/.

    Thanks for sharing, and thanks for approving my comment…
