This is a great plugin. I'm using it in conjunction with similar topics based on tags as two separate blocks.  The topics that don't have tags never get a default IPS similar topics block so this fixes that.

A very, very useful plugin !! Integrating stop words would be great and would improve the plugin even more.

Very cool and well done plugin brings back the feature I had on my vBulletin board by default. Easy installation in 10 seconds. The only time consuming part is adding the exclusion words.

Two suggestions to improve the product. "Block Title" should be added into the IPS phrase system. In the "Neglect Words" part it should be possible to add wildcards because in my language there are hell lot of variations in wording. For example: zusätzlich, zusätzliche, zusätzlichen, zusätzliches, so zusätz* would be cool. Thanks for your great work.

Response from the author:

Many thanks for your nice review...

Your suggestion is added to my to-do list.
