Why should I use this plugin?

Because it will increase the page views on your site, improving engagement and reducing your bounce rate.

Can I use the Inline related Posts plugin along with another Related posts plugin?

Yes you can! Our plugin puts fancy boxes INSIDE the content, not at the end of it.

Will this plugin break the structure of my content?

NOPE. Our algorithm knows HTML tags and avoid placing the boxes in the wrong place!

Do you have some others fancy box styles?

Yes! We have other cool styles and features in the PRO version. Check it out

Will this plugin slow my website?

Absolutely Not! Inline Related Posts is built with lightweight code so you won’t notice any difference in speed using it.

  1. [irp] — use this to place a box where ever you want.
  2. [irp posts=”183,179,191,195″] — this will display a box with a link to random post from the posts lists.
  3. [irp cats=”3″] — target only posts from the selected category(s) (use a comma separated list to add more categories)
  4. [irp tags=”18″] — target only posts with the selected tag(s) (use a comma separated list for more than one tag)

The plugin’s great until my WordPress site started to crash frequently. Turns out, my WP_OPTIONS table grew because it was loaded with IRP_POSTs. Not using this anymore.

Bardzo fajna, słabo powiązuje posty raczej są losowe – ale przydatna jako zachęcenie do czytania innych treści. Łatnie też się prezentuje – szkoda że nie ma do ustawiania własnych kolorów w wersji darmowej – w sensie własny kod koloru.
