  • Resolved woodsandhillsplc


    In my opinion the way the Related Posts module pulls in a big chunk of text content for every item included as a related post is OTT, as well as adding to the page weight it looks messy when you hover over. It would be great to be able to remove the snippet, whether via an option of code via functions.php.

    Hi there,

    Although that cannot be removed, you can hide it with some CSS. Can you try adding the following to your CSS editor on the Customizer?

    .jp-relatedposts-post-a:hover {
    	display:none !important;

    Let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you. I’m happy to help.

    Hi Fotis,

    Thanks for looking at this and for the code example you provided. I will consider it.

    To be honest I will probably use a different related posts solution in the coming days – my worry is how Google will see this – having such a large amount of content as hidden text is at best misleading and unnecessary, at worst it is dangerous for SEO and could lead to lost search rankings. If it was just 20 words or so it would be fine, but it is taking way too much text from the articles.
