The Cons:A�Lacks even the most basic features such as custom layouts

With more than 5 years under its belt, LinkWithin (also somtimes called Link Within) has been around as a related posts plugin for a long time. And in all that time their website has not changed all that much (yep, we actually checked on Waybackmachine.org).
Anyway, LinkWithin is probably one of the most basic plugins for related posts. On the upside it is easy to install and works out of the box. And it does not require any registration. And… well, that’s sort of it when it comes to advantages.
Compared to other plugins, LinkWithin lacks a lot of features: no layout options, custom layouts are hardly possible, you are stuck with thumbnails and thumbnails only. No option for text links. Where other plugins have tons of options to fine tune, LinkWithin has next to nothing.
That is why this review is actually rather short: Not much to review really. Link Within does its job, but in the most basic way possible. Even for a beginner we would recommend other plugins which are just as easy to setup and configure (e.g. WordPress Related Posts), yet provide a lot more value.
