Videos posted between 2008 and 2013 are not showing up because the coding used to embed the videos no longer work. Lockerz (who bought Vodpod) has shut down.

Before I start complaining about this new feature, I’d like to say that it is a good idea. It’s what I do for almost every blog post: put links to previous posts that are related to the current one. However, I select which previous posts to list at the end of the blog posts.
