1. Go to Linkwithin homepage. Fill in the details as requested.

 

2. Download the zip package to your computer. Unzip the package. You will find a file named, “linkwithin.php”.

6. Thats all you have to do. Now you will notice a new portion that displays a list of posts related to the post you are reading.

 

The plugin is pretty simple to configure and even more easier to work with. It also adds thumbnail screenshots(used in the relevant post) along with the related post title. As images are more appealing to readers, the plugin gets an upper-hand over others of its type. And not to mention, with increased visibility of older posts,  it ensures that your readers stay attached to other posts without just leaving after reading the present one.
