I've been recently using a template this
---- Related posts: [[!inline pages="blog/posts/* and !blog/posts/*/* and !Discussion and !tagged(draft) and <TMPL_VAR raw_tagged>" archive="yes" quick="yes" show="5"]]
Which I then call by doing this at the end of my blog posts on my ikiwiki install
[[!tag software linux]] [[!template id=related tagged="tagged(software) or tagged(linux)"]]
It somewhat works, I was wondering if anyone else has tried to do something like the above to get "related posts" based on tags. The way that I have done it isn't very clever as it only links to the last 5 most recently posted items based on my parameters. Is it possible to "randomly" select a bunch of links from a set of user defined pagespecs?
I know that the backlinks plugin exists for this sort of stuff (related links), it just lacks some user configuration options.
