I like the plugin, issues I had. 1. Using tags as related source did not work, blank and I had matching tags in many posts. 2. Turning on excerpts and picking a word limit did not function for my setting of 10, it just seemed to show the default setting of 55 (I didn’t count though) 3. Using categories as related source would just show the same most recent posts, no variation. Hope to see some improvements.

It´s super light and does the job pretty well! Thanks for this awesome plugin! Check it out at our site. It would be great to be able to display posts in columns with the ability to choose diferent amount of columns for mobile and desktop!
