I have updated my Where did they go from here Plugin to make it compatible with WordPress 2.6 and beyond. The plugin adds the small list of links to the bottom of each post, as on this blog, of places within your blog that visitors went to after visiting a particular post. This emulates an Amazon functionality of similar nature. Download version 1.4 from here.

Check out the updated plugin.

    Cool! I’m going to install it this weekend and try it out. I wonder if it’s better to use something like this versus similar posts – time will tell I guess.

    Am not sure about this. At the moment your example shows the following ‘Related posts’:

    WordPress Plugin: Post Updated
    WP-Plugin: Updated TinyMCE Extensions
    WP Plugin: Updated Social Bookmarks
    Updated Paginate plugin for WordPress 1.5
    Updated WYSIWYG Plugin For WordPress

    And the following ‘posts read by other people’:

    WP Plugin: Updated Social Bookmarks
    WP Plugin: Where did they go from here?
    Wordpress Plugin: Post Updated
    WP-Plugin: Updated TinyMCE Extensions
    Updated Paginate plugin for WordPress 1.5

    So four of the five links are the same. Seems like unnecessary duplication, at least if you’re already using Related Posts.

    I like the idea, but I am using a feature that shows similar posts, and if none found, it shows popular posts. Looking at past analytics I found my visitors prefer certain types of posts so to improve their quest I think using a similar post result would be better. Only testing will tell though. Maybe a better plugin would be similar post, and if none found, where did they go from here results.

    Pretty awesome idea, I think I’m definitly going to install that on ALL of my blogs. Great job!

    Great plugin! Is this on WordPress.org/extend/plugins? Because I remember searching for something like this and never found it.

    Comments:
    1. Users should be able to specify , or something else is used for the text “Readers who viewed this page, …”
    2. N/A text also can be customisable, like “Coming soon” ;)
    3. Option to place it above the comment box(immediately below the post)

    I did the editing manually for now for (1) and (2) and working on (3).

    Removed the call to add_action() and called show_where_they_go()in the template directly. Good to go until the next update to the plugin!

    I had to remove the call to add_action() and called show_where_they_go()in the template directly as well but it works great! Thanks! :)
