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.

As a freelance musician and teacher my website is very important for generating business and maintaining good contact with my clients. I have found Jo Cox Design very useful to help maintain elements of my site which are more complex. I like to have control of my site but I often find there are things I cannot achieve on my own. I would certainly recommend Jo as a friendly person who’s easy to work with and who can help you achieve such goals.
