    I just wondering how to install related post with image in the sidebar. Do You know how to do that?

    • Pascal February 19, 2010, 8:09 PM

      In sidebar, you can show recent posts, popular posts etc in sidebars. Generally readers are expecting related posts in below post only. So that anyone not created a plugin to show related posts with thumbnail in sidebar.

    • Pascal February 19, 2010, 8:29 PM


      I have found one widget. It looks like what you asked. But i haven’t tried that.
      The plugin says it supports thumbnail images if you use wordpress 2.9’s version.
