Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP) - Version 4.5

Version Description

After a bit of a hiatus, we're back! The plugin had been delisted due to a minor email address issue. This has been resolved with this release and the plugin has been reinstated. We consider this to be a big step, and yes, after a 6-month hiatus of not being in the plugin directory.

The plugin is also no longer maintained by Adknowledge. A group of us with deep expertise in Content Recommendations and 10+ years experience with maintaining very popular plugins have very recently taken Yarpp over from Adknowlege. More on this will be shared very soon.

After a break of many years, the plugin is 100% supported now that the baton has been passed on. A larger update (hand-in-hand with proper communication) is being carefully worked on with a focus on a host of bug fixes and compatibility updates which will be available once it is properly tested, ready and updates properly communicated. Stay tuned.

Sometimes this means images will be scaled down in a weird way, so it is not ideal. What you really want is for YARPP to serve appropriately-sized thumbnails.
