  • I think I get what you are asking…you want to exclude posts from a particular tag, yeah?

    If so, try this:

        $include = wp_list_pluck( get_the_tags(), 'term_id' );
        $exclude = array( 123 ); // ID of tag to exclude
        $args = array(
            'tag__in'        => $include,
            'tag__not_in'    => $exclude,
            'post__not_in'   => array( $post->ID ),
            'posts_per_page' => 3,
            'orderby'        => 'rand'
        $query = new WP_Query($args);
        while( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post();
        <!-- Inside the loop. -->

    You just have to set the $exclude variable to the ID of the tag(s) you want to exclude.

    because the code i added on my post up is the one who show the related post in my single page so i can change it i can only edit it !
