Does anybody know a Wordpress "related post" plugin with behavior like the one at inc.com. For a demo, visit any article at inc.com (ex: http://www.inc.com/guides/2010/10/how-to-design-a-great-about-us-page.html) scroll down to the end of the article and you will notice a box sliding in from the bottom right corner of the page.

Although this is just like any other related post plugin, I feel its behavior increases site retention.

Any pointers will be helpful.

Thanks in advance


The plugin I think you're looking for is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/upprev-nytimes-style-next-post-jquery-animated-fly-in-button/

"Just like the NYTimes button, upPrev allows WordPress site admins to provide the same functionality for their readers. When a reader scrolls to the bottom of a single post, a button animates in the page’s bottom right corner, allowing the reader to select the next available post in the single post’s category (the category is also clickable to access an archive page). If no next post exists, no button is displayed."

  • Bingo! that's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Christopher, for the tip! – Ashwin Prabhu Jan 24 '11 at 8:20

You can do that without the plugin via the same type of jQuery function the plugin uses: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4772434/looking-for-alternative-to-this-fly-by-in-wordpress-plugin

  • Christopher's suggestion works out of the box, no custom coding required. – Ashwin Prabhu Jan 24 '11 at 8:21

    Of course it works without any extra work, but the point of WordPress Answers is to be a collaborative Q&A site, where other people down the line will look for your same question and will be interested in different answers. – markratledge Jan 24 '11 at 14:14

i use http://mitcho.com/code/yarpp/ very good , customizable and with many settings

  • While plugin is indeed good, I don't remember it having such scroll-triggered option natively?.. – Rarst Jan 19 '11 at 8:54
  • oh you're right. i clicked the link, scrolled down and saw the "related posts" underneath the post itself. my fault. – choise Jan 19 '11 at 9:08
  • but i think its really easy to do it by your own. use this plugin, style it, add a few lines of javascript. done – choise Jan 19 '11 at 9:09
