    I just started using this plug-in and it seems to work great except it's showing in the article summary on some posts when looking in the category. It doesn't happen when looking at the post summaries from the home page.

    Check it out at
    http://mariacdawson.com/category/lifestyle/sexual-harassment-discrimination/page/2/

    Plus, it shows on some summaries and not on others...BUT, I don't want it to show at all on the summaries.

    In the settings, I selected single posts only. Any ideas????

    Thanks!!

    I think it has to do with how your category.php is written in the theme you are using. I would like to help you with this but I don't even see any debug output from my plugin (maybe because you are using a caching plugin). I think I would need Admin access to your site to figure it out unless you are good at troubleshooting PHP and can determine what is the difference between your category loop and you home page loop.

    You can email me directly here if you want to send me a login to your admin:

    Thanks for checking. I actually did NOT get it. I just check my spam to be sure and I still don't see it. Can you try sending it again?

    or you could post a comment on my blog: wordpress.ieonly.com
    I won't approve/publish any comments with credentials in them or you can just say "hi" to get the dialogue started and I'll reply to you directly.

    Hi Maria,
    Yes, I did get the login you sent this time, Thanks.

    It appeared you had everything setup right in my plugin for it to be showing on those pages but it was just not there. I saw that you are using a plugin called W3 Total Cache and I believe this is throwing you off. I emptied the cache and all the links I expected to see suddenly showed up on those pages that had not had them before. I don't think you need a cache plugin anyway, and if you don't know exactly how this plugin works and how to fine tune it then it will probably get in your way more then it will speed up your site.

    If you deactivate that W3 Total Cache plugin then you may find your site working the way you should expect it to. Then, whenever you make changes to your site, you can see them immediately.

    Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

    Aloha, Eli

    Hi Eli - I thought the cache plugin increased site speed??? I deactivated it based on your suggestion but the related links are still showing under the summaries of posts in category listings. I will email you a snapshot of what I mean, but if you click on any one of the category names from the menu, you shouldn't see related posts under the summaries (the same way they don't show up on the homepage).

    Maria,
    Sorry for the confusion (my fault) I misunderstood your need. I noticed pages that did not show the related post links that I felt should be there and attributed this to the caching plugin. When I cleaned the cache the links showed up and I thought I had fixed it. Caching is supposed to speed up your site in theory but technique and fine tuning are essential to successful performance increase. I have seen loads of caching situation where the act of caching actually slows performance, plus, it nearly always make it more cumbersome to troubleshoot changes to the site (as they don't alway show up right away).

    Anyway, thanks for your clarification. I now understand your original issue and I'm looking into it. I will let you know when I figure out a solution.

    Aloha, Eli

    Maria,
    I am just posting the solution for anyone else who may want to do the same thing.

    I added && !is_category() to the first condition in the SPOSTARBUST_related_links_on_posts function so that it will not display links on category pages.

    Later I also added && !is_auther() so that it will not display links on auther pages.

    Aloha, Eli
