Adding Thumbnails To Similar Posts Plugin

Adding Thumbnails To Similar Posts Plugin

Lately some blogs have been making use of  similar posts wordpress plugin with thumbnail images, instead of the simple text. I thought adding this would enhance the usability of Qbrushes and QVectors.

This feature currently on Qbrushes and QVectors uses similar posts plug-in by Rob Marsh which basically pulls similarities between posts by words,tags and categories. With some minor output adjustment you can replace the default text output into thumbnails from custom fields, If you’re intending to use this on your own blog then you need to have the output template.

Output template

<li><a href=”{url}”><img class=”aligncenter” src=”{custom:thumbs}“/></a>
{link}</li>

The {custom:youfieldnamehere} tag will pull the image from your custom field, In my case the custom field name was “thumbs” the other tag {link} will pull the URL of your post.

You can find more info on other tags and extra help off Rob Marsh personal blog http://rmarsh.com.
I would like to thank David from Tutorial9.net for pointing me to the right direction.

Good article. I was looking for this, but how did you get it worked ?
For instance I have installed those 2 plugins and I have inserted the code provided by you in my template (i have modified the costume field with mine), but is not working :(. Any help will be much appreciated!

You need to first set up the plugins and then go to the similar posts plug-in and edit the template with the code I provided above.

Good luck.
