    Hi there,

    Is there any way by which i can disable the related posts coming below each post. I would like to use a plugin instead. Thanks.

    Which theme are you using?

    Expound.

  4. Sure, but not through any theme options in the WordPress Dashboard. I tested this with a dev install. Take a look at the bottom of the post at http://dev.pnommensen.com/expound/2013/01/10/markup-image-alignment/. You can see that the related posts area is gone :)

    All I did was renamed the related-content.php file to "old-related-content.php." This file can be found in wp-content/themes/expound/. It's not a clean solution but it works :)

    Having some option to disable Related Posts is a decent idea. However, I do know that some developers don't like theme options.

    Well as I said in another thread that i learnt new things from you. I just did this in my custom css and it possibly worked for me.

    .single .site-content .related-content {
    display: none;
    }

    I got rid of the related content. Marking this resolved.

    Marking this resolved.

  7. That works even better :) Make sure you are using either a Custom CSS plugin or a child theme.

    Hi Guys,

    Glad to see someone figured ways to cut the "related content" bar from the pages. I am quite new at wordpress and am not sure how to access "wp-content/themes/expound/" I tried pasting it onto the end of by blog's url but got a "page not found" error. Is this soemthing that can be accessed through the dashboard hierarchy?

    I am also not sure what custom css is and where to find it.

    If anyone can give me pointers on whichever of these two solutions seems simplest, I'd be much obliged!

    Thanks,
    Steve
