Requires at least: 1.5
Tested up to: 2.6.2
Stable tag: 2.6.2.0
Displays a list of posts similar to the current one based on content, title and/or tags.

== Description ==

Similar Posts displays a list of posts that are similar or related to the current posts. The list can be customised in *many* ways. Similarity is judged according to a post's title, content, and tags and you can adjust the balance of factors to fit your own blog.

This plugin **requires** the latest version of the *Post-Plugin Library:* [download it now](http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/post-plugin-library.zip).

== Installation ==

1. IMPORTANT! If you are upgrading from a previous version first deactivate the plugin, then delete the plugin folder from your server.

1. If you have the *Similar Posts Feed* plugin installed you must deactivate it before installing Similar Posts (which now does the same job).

1. Upload the plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder. If you haven't already you should also install the [Post-Plugin Library](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-plugin-library/)></a>.

1. Go to the **Plugins** page and activate the plugin.

1. Put `<?php similar_posts(); ?>` at the place in your template where you want the list of related posts to appear or use the plugin as a widget.

1. Use the **Options/Settings** page to adjust the behaviour of the plugin.
