Related Posts Pro for WordPress

Ernest Marcinko Blog, Commercial Plugins, Wordpress 2 Comments

envato-iconLately I was looking into related posts plugins, but I haven't found any for my exact needs. I've decided that the next project then will be a related posts plugin with as many features as possible. So I made one: Related Posts Pro for WordPress.

Why is it better than the other ones?

I needed a plugin with features like taxonomy, category and post type filtering and with a very nice customizable design. As the plugin grew I was coming up with more and more ideas for customizations and ended up with a plugin with more than 300 options on the backend.

From my previous experience whit Ajax Search Pro for WordPress I learned that it is worth listening to my customers from time to time, when they come up with ideas. Some of the ideas can really boost up the sales of a plugin.

With this plugin you can basically:

  • Show posts, pages and any custom post type or custom content
  • You can mix up the results
  • You can filter and sort the results by custom post type, category and taxonomy terms
  • You can do a quick search on the results
  • You get many many pre-defined templates with different layouts
  • You can configure this all without any knwoledge of coding whatsoever
  • ..and its hi-res retina ready as well

The basic idea was to give the buyer as much freedom as it's possible. Not all of the blog and webshop owners are programmers. This is what I always try to achieve: make the plugin as user friendly as possible.

    Ernest, I bought RPP earlier today and have been exploring it on a site I use to test things out. So far I’m really loving it! After spending several days trying out various other related posts plugins I’m so glad I finally found yours. I’m no coder or developer so I’m still figuring things out. But so far so good!

    P.S. Tomorrow, after I’ve experimenedt with RPP a bit more, I plan to install it on the site I’ve listed above.

    Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your
    weblog? My website is in the exact same area of interest
    as yours and my users would definitely benefit from a lot of the information you
    provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you.
