  • Hi Michael,

    It’s not something currently offered, exactly, but I did find a suggestion for you in this thread.

    We haven’t tested this specifically, but in JP 3.0, there is a shortcode for related posts now.

    As long as it is within the Loop, something like `do_shortcode( ‘[jetpack-related-posts]’); and unhooking the original filter should work in theory.

    Let us know if that helps!

    Hi lettergrade!

    Thank you so much for your reply!

    Just one problem: I don’t have a clue on how to unhook the original filter! 😛

    I’ve looked in the source code:

    And in the Codex:

    But I’m to much of a n00b to make sense of it….

    I tried something like this:

    function ap_remove_related_posts() {
        remove_filter( 'the_content', 'filter_add_target_to_dom',19 );
    add_action( 'wp', 'ap_remove_related_posts' );

    And this:

    function ap_remove_related_posts() {
        remove_filter( 'the_content', 'action_frontend_init',10 );
    add_action( 'loop_start', 'ap_remove_related_posts' );

    And several variants.

    Nothing helps. It’s just a guessing game for me…

    Anyone out there who is a bit more knowledgeable about these things? 😛

    You’re really close.

    function remove_jprp(){
    	$jprp = Jetpack_RelatedPosts::init();
    	remove_filter( 'the_content', array( $jprp, 'filter_add_target_to_dom' ), 40 );
    add_action('wp', 'remove_jprp', 11);

    Since Related Posts is a singleton, we can call it up again and it’ll return the same instance we already have. We have to call it in the remove_filter since the filter_add_target_to_dom is a function with the Jetpack_RelatedPosts class and so not generally available.

    We need to match the priority levels, so 40.

    On the add_action, we need to make sure we call it after the initial add_filter had been thrown in to the mix. Adding it directly to the wp hook at priority 11 takes cares of us.


    Hi Brandon,

    Better late then sorry I guess: but thank you! It worked perfectly!

    Best regards,
