Support » Plugins » Disable Contextual Related Posts Plugin on Custom Post Types

  • Hi Everyone,

    I am not too adept at php, and I am having an issue with the Contextual Related Posts plugin on my site.

    It works great for my blog and I love the plugin; it even offers a setting to disable it on certain categories. However, this doesn’t work for custom post types.

    I’d like to disable the plugin on my directory listing pages, i.e.

    Can anyone help me? I have a feeling it’s a real easy fix, but I just don’t know how to do it!

    Sincere Thanks,

    Lauren N Bridges

  • It’s pretty easy, but you have to edit the contextual-related-posts.php file…

    Around line 80, you’ll see:

    $output = '<div id="crp_related">';

    Before this, add:

    if (get_post_type() != 'post-type-to-avoid') {

    Around line 138, you’ll see:

    $output .= '</div>';

    After this, add:


    That’s it. Hopefully, the plugin can be updated to avoid specific post types at some point.

    Note that these code changes may not necessarily be the most optimal, but they work.

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks so much! I am so sorry for the VERY late response, but I’ll be sure to try this & see what happens.

    Thanks again!


    I tried it, works like a charm, thanks, Steve.
    But if you update the plugin, remember to redo those modifications.
    Maybe a more skilled person could code a plugin for that if the stars align right or smth 🙂
