How to: Move Jetpack’s Related Posts Module

6th July 2017

Jetpack’s Related Posts module currently doesn’t come with any settings allowing you to control where it is placed. Activate it, and you will get three suggested posts in a row directly at the bottom of your content, underneath the Jetpack sharing icons (if you’ve got them enabled – see below). To move them here’s what you need to do:

Stop related posts appearing automatically…

… by adding this snippet of code to the functions.php file in your theme

And then either:

Use a shortcode in individual posts

Or

Call the shortcode in your theme

A much better solution if you want to call it outside of the content area consistently on every single post page.

I was lost in a sea of technical jargon and hosting gobbledygook until Jo appeared like an angel from on high and fixed everything for me, getting my site back up and running in no time at all, with no fuss. Jo’s technical knowledge meant I could relay my problem in layman’s terms and she knew exactly what to do straight away. I would definitely recommend Jo Cox Design for anyone needing a website creating.
