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.

What our customers say:

I knew the moment I spoke to Jo that she was the right person to transfer our website over to a content management system.  We were looking for someone who combined a really good technical knowledge of WordPress with a keen eye for design, and Jo provided just that.  She was fast, thorough and incredibly straightforward in her approach and nothing was too much trouble.  The training Jo delivered as part of the job was clear and thorough too.  Thank you, Jo, for a fantastic job!
