is it possible to add thumbnail image functionality to the related post links?  that would be ideal, having the image accompany the hyper link of the posts' title

I see this capability is added to the plug-in.  For those of us who do not wish to change templates, is there a plan to add the thumbnail as an option on the settings screen?

That will probably eventually be an option.  I just need to get some more time to work on it.

Upset at my slow responses recently? Please read my explanation.

I've seen you have added the line

if ( function_exists('get_the_post_image') ) {                            $related_post->post_image = get_the_post_image($related_post->ID);

But post_image is not used anywhere to call an image with a <img.

I tried myself adding at line 300:

$p = array(
'ID' => $related_post->ID,
'post_title' => $related_post->post_title,
'permalink' => get_permalink($related_post->ID)
'post_image' => get_the_post_image($related_post->ID)
$link = "".wptexturize($p['post_title']).'';

But it results in a general error.


Can you help me?

Thank you for the great plugin. 


I would also like to see the post thumbnail functionality into ERP.

@galerio : I have figured out why you were unable to get the images. Actually there is no such function defined (neither in wordpress or the ERP) as get_the_post_image. The correct function is get the post thumbnail. So I used this on line 409: 


if ( function_exists('get_the_post_thumbnail') ) { 
$related_post->post_image = get_the_post_thumbnail($related_post->ID,thumbnail);


and I was able to get thumbnails. I just need to stylize them now. I think to stylize them I need to edit $output at line 300.

The following should work for you.


Edit: the editor messed up my code, and does not seem to respect either code or pre tags.


Here's a link to the code:


Relevant changes are on line 304-308 and line 410-413. Of course, you should be careful, and verify no other lines have changed before using this code.


Also, I've added the erp-link class to the text link, and the erp-thumbnail class to the thumbnail link. That should help in styling the related posts with the thumbnail.
