WordPress: Related Posts / “You may also enjoy”

After installation, your theme will automatically display a “you may also enjoy” section at the end of each blog post.

You can control the appearance of this feature by going to Appearance > Customize in your dashboard. Then look for the “Related Posts” tab in the list on the left of the screen.

From there, you will have multiple options for displaying related posts:

Related posts options

By default, related posts in this feature are found based on post categories. However you can change this to post tags instead by using the options.

    My related posts won’t sit from left to right on the page. Any idea why this is?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Caroline, it looks like some settings in the Easy Google Fonts plugin are breaking that feature. If you deactivate that plugin temporarily it will test if this is indeed the case.

      If it is the Easy Google Fonts plugin, you will need to check the spacing/padding/alignment settings for the “Post and Page Text” font control.

      We’ve actually just released an update for Venture, which includes hundreds of new font options. So you should not need to use the Easy Google Fonts plugin. I’d recommend removing that plugin and then setting up the fonts via the “Font Options” panel in the Customizer. Make sure to update the theme first though 🙂

    Hi Phil:
    In Blogger, how does function work? Since we don’t have “tags” is this being culled by the labels attached to each post or by the title of each post? I’m trying to figure it out and am having a hard time…thanks!

    Hi Phil,
    I’d like to use the “tag” setting of this feature. However, some of our articles are not tagged and then the feature does not offer any articles at all. Is it possible to set a default tag?
    Best, Cerstin

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Cerstin, you could create a generic tag such as “blog post” or “untagged”. Then you could add the post to this, as well as any other posts that are untagged. You could even add this tag to all posts if you wanted to show more posts in this feature.

    Hi Phil,
    unfortunately, it doesn’t work on my site. In the draft version of one post I saw this option, but once I published the post it’s not showing. I checked if I ticked the category box and that’s fine. Thank you for your reply. Nicole

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Nicole, this feature should start to work fully once you have at least 5 posts within the same category (and in the same language). If it’s still not working for a post which is included in a post category with 5 posts, please let me know and we can check this out for you.

    Hi Phil!
    I have a problem, i changed the Related post option “Number of posts to display” to 4 (the maximum) but just some posts show 4, others keep 3. Why is this happening? I tried to update the posts and everything… nothing happened! Thanks.

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Salome, this could mean that there are only 3 related posts available for some of your posts. Since 4 is the maximum, it may display less than this if WordPress cannot find any more related posts. This should be less of a problem after you have published over 20 posts or so.

      1. Salome

        Phil sorry for the work! I solved it after some tries, i discover that was the problem, not enought post in the same categorie to recomend! Thanks for the fast answer and sorry for all the trouble! 🙂 p.s. the newsletter “problem” was solved after the last update! Thanks for it!

    Is there an option to show different related posts per each article? The way it is now when you scroll through blog posts is it displays the same set of related posts for each article even though the article is using different categories or tags.

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      They should show different posts if each post is within a varied list of categories. However if all of your posts also belong to the same category then this will make the same ones appear frequently. You could try changing the option to “tags” rather than “categories” to see if that adds more variety.

      1. Shayda

        Thanks! And what do I do when toggling the “Tags” option on doesn’t show any results? Ex: when I use categories it displays the selections but when i select tags nothing shows up.

            1. Phil (pipdig)

              I think it might be best if I log in and take a look. It sounds like there is a plugin on your site which is filtering the tags/categories. I’ll open a ticket for you now so you can send login details securely.

    Hi Phil,
    How do you change the font and font size of this feature?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Alexandra, this can be done with some custom CSS. The selector you will want to use is:

      .pipdig_p3_related_title a

    How can I remove this ‘related post’ feature from my blog? Guidence needed. Thanks!

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Jasmine, there is an option to disable this feature shown in the screenshot above. It’s the “Don’t display on…” checkboxes.

      1. Jasmine Grace

        Okay, thank you! I have that selected, just wanted to make sure that is the permanent option

  9. Rachel

    Is this available with every theme? I’m using Equinox and don’t seem to have this option.

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Rachel, yes all the features listed in the WordPress section of this site are available in our themes. If you’d like to send login details via the “contact us” button at the top of this page I’ll take a look at this for you.

      1. Rachel

        Thanks very much! I’ve actually just updated to the latest version of php and it seems to have miraculously solved it and I have all extra Pipdig bits that I was previously missing.

        1. Phil (pipdig)

          That’s great! It sounds like your host might have been using an out of date version of PHP. Glad to hear it’s all working for you now though 🙂

    Hi Phil!
    Do you happen to have a blogger equivalent for this? I’ve found similar online but they all just look horrendous 🙁 Thank you! xx

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Rebecca, our Blogger templates also include this feature. Which template are you using at the moment?
