Avoid Repeating Posts


Are you seeing the same post repeated in multiple sections in a page? For example, a post appearing under “Most Recent” AND “Latest Posts”? Try installing this plugin!

Avoid Repeating Posts intelligently avoids repeating a post on a page which has already displayed that post. It does this by keeping track of which titles have been displayed in every loop, and ensures that subsequent loops omit that post from their query.

Avoid Repeating Posts ensures that you show a wider variety of your content on the same page, helping to keep your readers interested.

I've been looking for such a solution for a long time. Also, the plugin works perfectly with the latest version of Wordpress.

Thank you! I had been trying to find a way not to show repeating/duplicate post in the slider area and area beside slider sections of the colormag theme and then anywhere else on the homepage for several days and had started getting really worried because I was not able to find any way to do that. I was delighted to see your plugin worked just as I wanted. Awesome job and thank you again! Even though this plugin was last updated two years ago, the fact that it's working brilliantly without any issue with the latest version of wordpress speaks volume of you being an amazing/forward-thinking plugin programmer (? - I know nothing about coding, so please accept my apologies for using the wrong term, if I'm using it wrong). Five star from me. Thank you! I had been searching on Google for several days. It's strange that nobody else want not to show duplicate posts on their homepages or maybe everybody else knows coding and they are able to do it easily without requiring any plugin like this. I hope this review helps those apparently few like me find and use this outstandingly helpful plugin.
