    Is the plugin compatible with YARRP?
    I tried with YARRP activated and deactivated, but it seems not working, there is no images at all, nor any empty box, nothing…
    Is there another setting, which is not mentioned here?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry I am not getting this.

  • lblackmore

    Hi

    Plugin is brilliant. The thumbnail image doesn't seem to work if you use the wordpress gallery feature or if you add a thumbnail to the post in wordpress. I think your plugin just looks for 1 kind of attached image. Is it possible for the plugin to use the thumbnail assigned to the posts too??

    Get a lot of 'no image' thumbs instead

    hi , i have reactivated the plugin . You can check it out and let me know . Thanks

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Hi Sourish,

    I have checked your site and found that you have hosted your images on tinypic[.]com and this plugin not taking images from other host due to resize image, So the main problem your images is not showing is images are hosted at other host.

    Thanks
    Ankur

  • http://www.onetrickaday.com/ Sourish

    Hi , Ankur , thare are only a few posts that have tinypic images. You can see other thumbnail plugin working side by side showing all the thumbnails , except for tiny pic one .

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Hi Sourish,

    Check this post of your blog http://frd.im/FqXohg , this post showing thumbnails images for the posts and check this post http://frd.im/2dXYY5 this post showing thumbnails image and also not showing tinypic image.

    My plugin algorithm and other related posts plugin algorithm is different, If you are using my plugin than you will not get “No related posts” and also different functionality than other. You can See other related plugin break your site HTML.

    Thanks
    Ankur

  • http://www.onetrickaday.com/ Sourish

    @ Ankur

    yes you figured it out right . Few images are being shown , but the html is breaking because of some mismatch with your plugin and wp thumbie plugin from blogsdna dot com. I hope you will bring an update to fix this to show more thumbnails. , while i will keep an eye on your plugin .

    thanks

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Sourish,

    Thanks, But HTML is not breaking due to my plugin, you can deactivate my plugin and than check it, It will show same breaking HTML.

    I will try to make something which work great for you.

    Manually Placing of Related Posts shows the plug-in twice. (I am using Thesis theme and put the code in 'thesis_hook_after_post') It appears in the right place though, what no comparable plug-in did!

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

  • http://fruityoaty.com Massa P

    I updated from 1.5 to 1.6 (version that introduced “no image” if image is served from remote server – to prevent bandwidth theft).

    Even though all my images are served from my blog domain, absolutely no image thumbnails appeared for ALL POSTS (yes, I checked all my 101 posts). Confusing because I do not serve/hotlink images (well, just 1 image actually) from remote servers. Version 1.6 is broken… I had to revert back to 1.5.

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Hello Massa P,
    Thanks for telling me this bug. There is little bit problem in this, I have solved it out and relased latest version 1.7 , So upgrade plugin to 1.7 version.

    Thanks
    Ankur

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Hello All friends,

    One request to you to upgrade this plugin to latest version 1.7 So if you have any images from other remote server it will show no image instead of ugly image space.

    I can make this plugin to show remote server images but I can't do it to prevent bandwidth theft.

    Thanks

    I just found your plugin.I'll try it now.

  • grlwithgumption

    thank you so much for this awesome plugin, i just have two questions:
    1) how is this plug-in determining the related posts? From what I can tell it seems random.

    2) where can i access the .css stylesheet I would like to customize it a bit.

    thanks

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Thanks.

    First it is determining related posts by matching title and content with other posts, If it not find anything it will try to find related posts by matching tags with posts title and finally if it not get any result than it will show random posts.

    if you want to change CSS than in inc/core.php there are css part which included according to selected related posts style. If you need any help contact me on anku.gandhi@gmail.com

    Thanks for a great plug in Ankur. I have the latest 1.8 version but I have the same problem others have of some post thumbnails not showing. Can you help?

  • http://fruityoaty.com fruityoaty

    Two issues with the latest version 1.8 – seems they broke:
    “Automatically Show related Posts After Post” checkbox
    “Give IGIT Plugin Credit” checkbox
    After clicking “Update Options” button, the selections are always enabled, even if I unchecked the boxes.

    Feature/change requests:
    1. In settings, to be able to specify location of my own default image that I choose (right now, I always have to hack the plugin every time there's a plugin update).

    2. “Heading Text” textbox has maximum input of 60 characters. The text I want to put in there is at least 70 characters… could you increase to maybe 75?

    Thanks for this plugin. :)

      I have the same problem. Thumbnails won’t show up and changing thumbnail options dosen’t help at all.

    • Elpapo

      Likewise, I have WordPress 3.0.1 and it does not display images. Very frustrating…

    • Camille

      Hi,

      I am also on 3.0.1 using the latest version of this plugin, and images won’t show up as well.

      • Anonymous

        Have you made sure that the cache folder within the plugin has rewrite rules of 777?
        Timthumb needs full access to it for thumbnails to work properly

  • Notlikely

    I used this plugin pretty easily until I tried to look at the html code. I was surprised at how much extra coding is inserted and then how it had this little quirk of forcing the scroll bar back to the top. It seemed like it was trying to hide something. I do not recommend using any pluggin that overrides the user.

  • Retonas

    For me thumbnails don't show yet for wrdpress 3.0

  • http://fruityoaty.com fruity oaty

    OMG! I didn't notice until today that the plugin is showing thumbnails derived from images contained in password-protected posts (PRIVATE stuff)! Please fix, asap. Thankfully, I don't have many private posts, but I was quite dismayed to see those images that are supposed to be private.

  • http://fruityoaty.com fruity oaty

    i.e. instead of showing thumbnails derived from images contained in password-protected posts, show the default generic “no image”… or just don't show the private post as a related post at all…

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Can you tell me which extra coding you see in this plugin?

    May be there will be some other reason your images are not showing.

    Thanks

  • serge

    me too, i don't have the thumbnails. i have the latest version of the plugin.
    strange

  • http://www.viktorix.com/ Viktor Nagornyy

    Hi Ankur,
    Awesome plugin! Works great. Is it possible to add brief description below the title? This way in vertical format it won't have so much empty space. It would be nice if we were able to specify how many characters to allow to show from the post excerpt. Why excerpt? It's easier, because if you pull beginning of the post text sometimes we have images there, so you would have to write code to strip html tags and such… using excerpt saves on coding and file size.

    Really looking forward to this feature.

  • http://www.allinknowl.com Allinknowl

    hey ankur, thanx fr the plugin.. I am using it on wp 2.9.2 but i lost the default configuration somehow..I just wanted to know what was the default attribute for the 'heading text' option?

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Hi Allinknowl , Thanks for using this plugin.

    Default Configuration for heading text is :

    < h1 >You might also like< /h1 >

    Please remove spaces in < h1 > and < /h1 >

    I have added you on gTalk So please come online.

    Hey,
    I just realized that this plugin breaks WP3 menu feature. When it's activated you can no longer drag and drop menus. Can you look into this?

    Thanks, love this plugin though.

  • Webmoneyco

    Hey Guys, First of all thank you for the plugin. Heres a small mod. The plugin will only show thumb if images in the post come before text. If text comes first then image you will get no image found. To fix that this what you need to do. Open core.php find: preg_match_all('|<img.+src=['"]([^'"]+)['"].*>|i', $result->post_content, $matches); and replace with: $image=preg_match_all('|<img.+src=['"]([^'"]+)['"].*>|i', $result->post_content, $matches); also find this: if(!strstr($image,$bgurl)){

    $image = WP_PLUGIN_URL . '/igit-related-posts-with-thumb-images-after-posts/images/noimage.gif'; // when no image found in post

    }

    and change to:

    /*if(!strstr($image,$bgurl)){

    $image = WP_PLUGIN_URL . '/igit-related-posts-with-thumb-images-after-posts/images/noimage.gif'; // when no image found in post

    }*/

    simple:)

    Hey once again, great plugin, but the update for September 3rd, 2010 has a problem. I’ve lost text under the thumbnails with this update. The previous version was just fine, so I’m not sure why you updated the plugin.

    • http://www.jarretmorrow.com Jarret

      Versions 3.3 and 3.4 don’t show any text under the image. I keep having to download and reinstall version 3.2 every time I get the upgrades.

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Hi Jarret,

    This new version have one new feature to show title of post or not? Tats why I release this version and it is working fine. Can you do one thing.. delete plugin and then reinstall it again. May be some problem occured while upgrading. I have checked this plugin after upgrading so many times and it is working fine.

    Also I have give this feature because I got so many request for this feature that option for display title as display thumb.

    or you can do one thing that just try to save once setting of that plugin.
    Let me know if you have any problem .

    Hello Ankur,I put the plugin on my site but its not sshowing the thumbs. I gave every post thumbs with the thumbs function in WordPress.My site is myemoporn[.]com (NSFW)Greetz,Casper

  • http://twitter.com/ProSpirity Prospirity.com

    Hi,I am using EGIT 3.3,WP 3.0.1 and use *THESIS theme* and there is an issue with thumbnails NOT showing up unless there is an image inserted in the post.Thesis handles images differently than regular themes so unless I add (insert another) an image aside from the the default one, then EGIT will pick it up and use it as the thumbnail in the related post. Otherwise if I only se my default image inserted using Thesis the plugin will NOT pick it upPOSSIBLE SOLUTION:I was thinking maybe you couls simply add a rule and a choice within the plug in to use “Attached image” under the Media menu in WP admin panel (where we can attache specifi image to a specifi post)

    • http://twitter.com/zestylemon zestylemon

      I second this request – please go with the ‘use Attached Image’ option. Once that change has been made I can look at using this plugin.

      • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

        Hi @Prospirity.com and @zestylemon ,

    Nice widget.
    One idea for future upgrades:
    Please try to include more customization for non English users.
    For example make it possible to customize the text “No related posts found”.
    Of course I can do it with manually editing the widget’s files but doing it after every upgrade is not that handy. Please cosider this at your next updates, thanks.

  • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

    Hello Friends, I got messages that when you are upgrading to 3.5 version you are geting fatal error like this “Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_post_thumbnail_id() in … ” . This error was occured on your site because your site not supporting featured image functionality. So if you want to check how you can enabled featured image for your post you can find it here http://www.hackingethics.com/blog/2010/09/04/how-to-enable-featured-image-in-wordpress/

    I have solve that issue and released new version 3.6, So if you dont want to use featured image then upgrade it to 3.6 version.

    Thanks

    Hi! Thanks for plugin, but i’m why my thumbails don’t shows?? WordPress 3.0.1, and plugin version 3.6. All thumbails work’s on theme, how to restart plugin???

  • http://botwaves.com/ Imran Jafri

    bro i really suggest that changes upto 3.4 are good, version 3.6 does not pull images automatically, the idea is to get first image automatically which 3.4 does. Hope you consider that.

    • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

      Hi,

      plugin is using timthumb and images are showing perfectly, Plugin 3.6 is working correctly and having more functionality than 3.4 because in 3.4 it is only scanning and finding images exists in post content but in 3.6 it is finding image in 3 to 4 way, means if you add image by custom field this plugin show that image , If you add image as featured image then this plugin will show featured image in related posts , So there are so many options in 3.6.

      Thanks
      Ankur

  • Pcmanias

    Bro… firts of all, thanks for this great plug-in. But he has some failures in it, and I bet you can change very easily.
    I own a non comercial webpage, and I used to have Joomla on it. I have articles since 2007, and they are placed on the /images, /images/storie0s, and /images/stories/”article_name”.
    In other words, the images are in the server, but not in the wordpress standard images directory, and as such, they do not appear.
    I was wondering if you could add an option to manually add other server images folders (and automaticly add included subdirectories, so that just including the /images folder would allow for the all lot of sub directories to also become available). Thanks for your time.

      Hi Torben,

      If you want to do this then there is one thing by which you can do that. First make one category and then assign that category to posts you want to show as related. After that go to admin settings and exclude all categories except this category and save. it will relate only this category posts.

    Hi I do like the plugin but for some reason, even though I have the most recent version, the thumb images are not showing. I have images on every post so I was supposing they’d show? Does the size of the image on the post have anything to do with it?

      • 3sa

        Hi Ankur,Site is www[.]delicacious[.]com. I don’t think it’s the thumbnails problem. might be some permission setting cos the error is reg. timthumb.php. However, I tried playin around with the permissions and it didn’t work either. Thanks!!

        • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

          Yes problem is permissions. Else my plugin is working file So you have to check permissions.

          • 3sa

            Hi thanks for checking. Do you know if besides timthumb.php, do I need to give permissions to any other folders? Cos even setting the permissions to the highest (777) does not work. Currently I set it back to (755) for that file.

          • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

            Hi 3sa,Check this link http://frd.im/Vnqx1q and implement this trick in timthumb file of my plugin. I think this will solve your problem.
            Also let me know if this works.

          • 3sa

            Hi Ankur,

            Tried that trick but it didn’t work. I’m suspecting that something else is wrong now because I realise that timthumb didn’t manage to create the /cache folder which I read somewhere that it is supposed to create. I wish I understood all these scripts better but as of now I am totally stumped. :(

          • 3sa

            Hi Ankur, I tried to create the cache folder and temp folder myself in the sub folders and it now works. For some reason (which I can’t figure still) the programme couldn’t create the folders. Thanks!!

Pull related links from the current post’s category based on date of post (newest news from that category, i find that most get post from this category plugins don’t work on my site. Tag will work ok if necessary but the ones it’s pulling now just seem random) and 3. gives me the option to use a default image that I have set up if the article has no image or no attached image. Could you please let me know how I’d do this or if it’s possible? thanks!

    Maybe idea for the update: i changed folder to “related-posts” and plugin did not worked, so maybe there is a point to fix, that all links are relative to plugin folder, not to “igit-related-posts-with-thumb-images-after-posts” folder?

    Anyway, looks like great plugin, let’s roll it to some websites! :)

    • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

      Thanks

    Any chance you can update this with:

    1) Default image (if no image is present in the post). Random default images would be nice too :)
    2) Be able to set “No Related Posts Text :” as blank (display nothing)
    3) Select “sticky” related posts (ie. I’d like 1 post to be a related post on all pages). Random sticky related post would be better.

    Thanks man, other than that, great plugin!

    The heading text doesn’t allow HTML with classes or id. It escapes the quotes. Otherwise it seem to work just fine :)

    I wish from my part is to keep all CSS in the CSS-file and not mix styling in the admin

      Also, I wanted to say that it’s showing related posts for pages I know aren’t related. So something is not right with that either.

    Hi, in the 3.9.4 version the related posts section is placed AFTER the entire post. Now with the 3.9.5 version, the related section is placed IN THE MIDDLE of my post! It’s also including repetitive related text links right after my post too. I have a screenshot, where can I send it to you?

    First off: GREAT WORK, very nice plug!

    I am using typekit so i can use alternative fonts on my site. So I am using for instance Museo, ofcourse this font is not part of your drop downlist. Checked both CSS files but couldn’t find where you set the font.

    I don’t mind it being hard coded, so where can I drop in the font family?

    Tnx!

    • http://fruityoaty.com/ fruityoaty

      This is happening on my blog too! Ever since I updated to version 3.9.7, the plugin is acting like a “recent posts” plugin (only shows most recent blog entries every time) – not “related posts”. Definite bug because prior to 3.9.7, the plugin was working perfectly awesome on my blog.

      I hope the plugin author can address this issue soon…

      • Shurchik

        Same thing on my site – only most recent posts show up no matter what changes in the plugin settings are made (other customizations – font, etc. – work fine). Can the plugin author address this issue please-please-please?

    SO i looked and its actually just showing the 4 most recent posts. My category structure is 10 categories with no hiarachy. But one category contains all posts. Is the pluggin continually reffereing to the main category or can it randomly (or deliberately) select from all the psost. As i said, i get the same for “related posts” for every post on my site and this kills what could be an amazing app! Please help.

    I’ve set 777 to the cache folder, and now the images show up… partially! :-) I mean, I get maybe one or two images out of 4 related posts I wanna show up.
    All posts have the same image attribute, which is set to point ABS URL to images on my server, so no outside server calls.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com Justin Germino

    I was busy looking for a plugin and am decided whether to choose between LInkWithin and IGIT but I really like IGIT when seeing it on other blogs. Question, when you say it has to pull an image locally and not remotely this still means it works fine with Amazon S3 hosting content right? Right now in WordPress you can’t set a featured image unless the image is uploaded locally, you can’t set a URL image from another site as a featured image.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com Justin Germino

    Is there a way to set a default related post thumbnail in case the image doesn’t have a thumb? Or maybe a default thumb by category?

    • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

      Hi, There is no way to set default thumbnail in plugin setting. I will try to include it in next upgrade.

  • Richard

    Select Categories To Exclude From Related Posts doesn’t work for me either. :( Just shows the newest posts no matter how many are excluded. And doesn’t pull anything related. :(

  • Anonymous

    Great plugin, absolutely love it.

    Just have a few criticisms which are easily fixed relating to the css and use of class instead of id.
    Basically, repeated elements have id used as identifiers/selectors which is bad practice. Only 1 id of any element should be used, while classes can be repeated. Personally made the relevant changes in 30 mins or so (can supply the changed files if you wish?

    secondly, there is a lot of inline styles which again is bad practice and should ideally be kept in a seperate css file. WordPress allows css hooks to load it in the header.

    Apart from that, great job, well done.

  • http://twitter.com/GreyWolfPhoto Radu Dumitrescu

    Hello,

    I’d like to start by saying that this is the best plugin I saw to display related posts. Now, after the update it’s even better, because it filters by tags and categories. Flawless, except for one thing.

    It alters the page’s description. For example, when I post a link to one of my blog posts to Facebook, instead of the first sentences, the description field has the text “Tweet Share S-ar putea să-ți placă și:Biking the Annapurna Circuit – Ep… Biking the Annapurna Circuit – Episode 1: Get… Biking Back to Kathmandu Biking to Markhu Mountainbike – Dashinkhali Tweet”

    Those are the titles of the related posts it generated.

    I can find my way around CSS and html, but I didn’t find a solution to getting the post’s text back.

    Do you have a solution? Din anyone else experience that when sharing a link on Facebook with IGIT Related Posts?

    Regards,
    Radu

    I’ve got a problem where my post titles are italicised, but since the full name of the post doens’t quite fit with each thumbnail, neither does the of the post title. Therefore, the plugin is basically stuffing up all the text beneath it by putting it under an unclosed tag. Any help, please?

  • http://krisbunda.com/blog Kris Bunda

    2 things:

    1.) All my thumbnails have the same “title text” that pops up on mouse-over, and the text is the title of the post I’m currently viewing. [See attached "Screenshot - title popup for all related posts thumbnails is same as current post title"]

    2.) Is there any way to have the excerpt or part of the post’s description show up under the title of the related post?

    Thank you, I really like the plugin better than any other related post plugins I’ve tried, just still not exactly what I want (Can’t please everyone all the time, right?). If fixes are already explained for this problem elsewhere, please direct me to the page.

    Hi. For some reason, I can’t get Full Titles to show even when the option box for it is checked. It still cuts off with ellipses. Is it just me?

      Welcome. :)

  • http://whooven.myopenid.com/ Bill

    After updating, I lost all of my related post images. I tried changing an option in the plugin config and changing it back as well as deactivating and reactivating. I also tried changing the timthumb file from 644 to 777 permissions as a test and nothing worked. Any suggestions? It was working perfectly before.

        hey,

        I have some images show, some not.
        I have changed the permission to 777 in both the public_html/
        and the public_html/domain/ folders. I set the content in both folders to 777, yet nothing is happening.

        Any ideas?

        really appreciated,

    • http://whooven.myopenid.com/ Bill

      FIXED. The cache folder below the plugin folder needed 777 permissions. Works now. Thanks Ankur for the quick email support.

      Hi Send me your site link on anku.gandhi@gmail.com after activating it. Also write down what is issue.

  • Lori

    The titles and images are showing up in the same space, instead of the images being above with the titles below (as shown in the screenshots).
    I’m not sure how to fix it. I’ve tried just the titles, just the “full title” etc. With no title – the images are in the bottom of the hover box area.

    Thanks for your help!

    • http://twitter.com/Mother_Matters Lori West

      switched to Link Within for now – but I would love to be able to use your plugin instead. Just can’t seem to fix the problem above.

    I was trying to add some additional style to the plugin and found that a lot of your IDs are repeated. You probably want to change them to classes.

        Thanks for your plugin, I tried about 5 related posts plugin before I found yours but yours is the only one that worked out the box immediately, so thank you!

  • Poli

    Hello Ankur,

    Thanks for the plugin. I have been testing it for a while now and I was quite happy with it until I upgraded to v4. Now, in some cases the excluded categories keep showing up. On other cases it retrieves posts without the excluded categories but it doesn’t change them when I test the reload, i.e, it gets stuck on the first posts that it shows as if there weren’t any more (before updating it would rotate posts). Finally, it shows unrelated posts. The later may have to do with its random search when can’t find related posts; the thing is that it wasn’t doing that before updating.

    I’m sorry I have to post this but I really like the plugin and I’m very reluctant to let it go. A solution would be great. Many thanks

    • http://www.hackingethics.com/ Ankur Gandhi

      In Next version all post will be related but random. Stay tuned.

    hey just set up you plugin works great, and the design is much better than the others Ive tried, the other ones left justify the thumbnails, I like the spaced out centered ones you have.

    but…just wondering about the search it uses to pull related posts, because one thing the other plugs did was pull by tag or keywords, but on this one, none of my series posts are getting returned as related, ie. Blog posts in a series, Blog News 1, Blog News 2, Blog News 3

    • http://www.bridiestypingservices.com/transcription-services/ Bridie Jenner

      Same here, mine is now just showing the posts in order and not relating them to each other at all… I’m sure there was a tick box for “must have at least one tag in common” but can’t see it now…?

      • Bojan

        Same here. Somebody has a solution?

  • Correction

    Just took a look at the code today. Noticed you’re using id=”igit_*” when you probably meant to use class=”igit_*”, as an id for a dom element should be unique per page. For example, you use: more than once and it should be . This would change your css from #igit_title to .igit_title. I tested it and works as expected. Modern browsers will probably render your css declarations correctly, but multiple ids would confuse most javascript libraries and break HTML validation.

  • http://ultimatesolution.biz Kerry

    Great Plugin but having a bit of a hair pulling experience. The related posts are showing in all posts, including custom post types which I have displayed in widget areas in the sidebar. I am looking for the code to be able to tell this plugin NOT show in and widgets and cannot seem to find any class to specify. (Maybe the same issue as mentioned in the post regarding finding div id but no class?). I am able to get the .igit_relpost class to not show but that just leaves a big space where the igit_rpwt_css is. Please help.

    Hi Ankur, I’ve been using your plugin for quite some time, but in the past couple of days, my server stats show that your plugin is consuming MASSIVE CPU usage… more than any other script or page in my site… is this normal? I just upgraded to wordpress 3.3… could this be an issue?

    Thanks!

    Hi there – this is an ace plugin BUT my post titles are not showing in full. They are cut off, followed by “…” sometimes even when it would be less characters to display the full title. For example “One Square Mile: Bandung, Indonesia in pictur…” instead of “One Square Mile: Bandung, Indonesia in pictures”. I have tried changing the various Post Title settings so that the character count is very high or the Full Title box is checked but nothing seems to work. Please tell me how to solve this?

        [Solved] : This tricked worked for me. I could be useful.
        I edited the normal blog single.php file and manually added the IGIT php shortcode. Then in the settings of the plugin, I just unticked the auto display feature…and my woocommerce single product posts are all clean while the plugin still works on other blog articles.

    Hi there! Great plugin. My only problem is that if I have a post in a category (with a lot of other posts) and only one tag (with less than 4 other posts with the same tag) then the plugin will *only* show the posts with the same tag. This means I may only have one other post showing as a “Related Post”. Why won’t it show posts from the tag AND the category? Thank you!

    You should add media=”screen” for CSS styles in case someone (like me) would like to use media=”print” in custom css for theme… :D

    hello. Thanks on the great work you’ve done with this plugin. I have one issue though: I can’t manage to put the title of the post under the image, it’s displayed on the image. Do you have any idea why this is happening?

    Thanks for this plugin. I just found it on internet while trying ‘contextual & some others related posts plugins’ and find this best for my site

    I added “&& is_main_query() && in_the_loop()” after “(is_single()” in the igit_total_content function, so the plugin doesn’t display on side posts that sometimes have on some themes, especially twenty-fourteen by WP…

    Check it out:

    function igit_total_content($content)
    {
    global $single;
    if (get_option(‘igit_rpwt’)) {
    $igit_rpwt = get_option(‘igit_rpwt’);
    }

    $output = igit_show_rel_post();
    if (is_single() && is_main_query() && in_the_loop()) {
    return $content . $output;
    } else {
    return $content;
    }
    }

    Thanks for the plugin. Unfortunately it doesn’t show any thumbs, only empty boxes with the words”no image” inside. Do you have any idea why?

      Sorry, I just saw a similar question further down. I will ask my host provider.

    hi there, thank you for the plugin! It looks wonderful and I really like it.

    Just one question; when I load my article page on my mobile (iPhone, using Safari), the related posts appear at the bottom of the article even when I didn’t tick the “Automatically Show related Posts After Post” box. When I add the customised line to the php, two sets of related posts will come up. It only happens with my mobile and not on my computer (on my computer the related posts appear where I added the line). Does anyone have the similar issue? It would be wonderful if I could get it work on my mobile. Thanks!
