Microkids Related Posts WordPress Plugin

Why you need it
Related post plugins allow you to present your reader with other content they may find useful or interesting. This helps keep your reader browsing your site and also provides additional internal links, which help search engines discover all your content.

Microkids Related Posts plugin provides a simple, effective solution.

Ease of use
The options are very easy to configure but has advanced capabilities for those that need them. As you can see the settings screen is very straightforward (click image to enlarge):

Features

  • You can customize the text that shows up beneath your blog post.
  • My favorite feature is that the links are reciprocal. So if I add a related post link from a new blog post to an old one, it will automatically update the old post with a link to the new. Very handy.
  • The related posts are manually selected via an AJAX powered search utility on the blog post edit screen. I like having full control over which posts are going to show up, rather than an automated system that tries to predict what is relevant. This also keeps the configuration options simple.

How I Can Help You

Hi! I'm Lucy Beer. I know that WordPress is liberating when you know how to use it, and bewildering when you don’t. I help individuals and businesses learn WordPress for their specific needs. I will accelerate your knowledge and cut your learning curve in half (at least!). Generic tutorials and videos only go so far - when you need specialized knowledge, or a real person to answer your questions, that's where I come in. I help non-techies understand and use the web to empower their personal or business mission.
