Custom post types are one the best features in WordPress. Since WordPress 3.0 they are much easier to use. Almost every theme I build for a client features at least one custom post type and usually a custom taxonomy as well. But there is a problem. There is no plugin that lists related posts that are from a custom post type. After looking through the sourcecode of a few plugins I decided to implement my own related content plugin. Plugin Features Depends on PHP5 and MySQL5 Option to add related posts to the RSS feed Use fulltext indexes for good performance Does caching through post meta or transients Incremental scoring for sites with many posts Find related posts, pages and custom post types Score relationships by various MySQL relevance scores or term relationships Use tags, categories or custom taxonomies Internationalized, OO, hopefully well documented and readable Other plugins I wrote Better Lorem Ipsum Generator Better Related Posts Custom Avatars For Comments Better Tag Cloud Theme Switch MU fast backend switch Visitor Movies for WordPress Zero Conf Mail Move WordPress Comments Delete Pending Comments Snow and more

The plugin ran into some errors.


Sorry, pal! The plugin couldn’t pass all our tests. No hard feelings, right?
