Support » Theme: Astra » How to add related posts below blog post?

  • The last theme I used had a related posts feature that was at the bottom of all the blog posts, that showed related post with a thumbnail. This was done without having to use another plugin.

    Is this possible with Astra?

    Also, why is “Next Post” and “Previous Post” the default, it seems like “Post Title” should be the default.

    Thanks

    Or “Recommended Articles”

    how Astra uses on their own blog at the bottom:

    Also, I wanted to add that I am not using a Builder and don’t want to use one.

    Thanks

    Hello @atlas99,

    You can use Jetpack for related posts.

    There are a couple of ways to handle customising the pagination text.

    I’ve done this with other themes by overriding the pagination code in the single.php file. Astra might provide a hook for this–which would be way cool.

    I’m still new to the theme. So, I’ll need to check how to do this myself and get back to you. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone else has already posted a solution for this.

    Enjoy!

    Hello @atlas99

    Also, to change the Previous and Next text.

    Here’s an article on the same.

    I hope that helps.

    Hello @brainstormteam

    You did not reply about “related posts” – by @atlas99 – The last theme I used had a related posts feature that was at the bottom of all the blog posts, that showed related post with a thumbnail.

    It is accomplish-able only via Jetpack?

    Hello @arvindwp

    As the related posts query was answered above I skipped it.

    While currently, the related posts feature is not possible. We already had a discussion with our developers on the same, so if feasible they shall introduce the same in the upcoming future updates.

    Also, for now you can use other plugins as recommended above or it might be possible to create a custom blog page and with plugins like Elementor insert the Related Posts section.

    I hope that clarifies. 🙂
