  • Hey, I’m not 100% sure, but I think some of our users already dealt with this problem in this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/pin-it-button-showing-on-related-post-how-do-i-turn-off?replies=4

    Did this help?

    Let me know, I’m eager to find out!

    Take care & have a nice day!


    Thanks for the reply. The answer on that thread was to make changes to the wp-related posts plugin files right? Won’t those changes be overridden in the next update. Also I’m note sure exactly what changes need to be made. That answer was a little confusing to me.


    Hey, no problem, I’ll gladly elaborate!

    Since you’ll be making these changes in your theme editor (under the tab ‘Appearance’-‘Editor’), those won’t be overridden after you’ll update our plugin.

    First, go to your plugin settings and un-tick the box next to “Auto Insert Related Posts”. After that, go under the tab ‘Appearance’-‘Editor’, select your theme and click on the single.php file to make the changes described below:

    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <span class="nopin"><?php wp_related_posts()?></span>

    Enter that code after your post content, click the ‘Save’ button and you’re done! Let me know how it goes or if you have any more questions β€” I’m here to help!

    Take care & have a nice day!


    that makes sense the only problem is my theme (headway) doesn’t have a single.php file – it only includes header.php, footer.php, functions.php and index.php. any ideas?

    Thanks again for you help!

    okay I figured it out. With headway you have to do it a little differently. Thanks!

    Hey, glad to hear that, really!

    What was the file called? Kinda curious, since it’s good to know these kind of things if someone else has any similar problems. πŸ™‚

    Thanks & take care!


    With the Headway base theme they have it set up so that instead of using the normal wordpress php files you customize the pages using a grid system. So in this case the workaround was to add a “custom code block” grid block and add the <?php wp_related_posts()?> in that. I didn’t even need to use the <span class=”nopin”> anymore because its a separate block (directly under the content block) which is not part of the page content so the pinit button did not show up. sounds a little confusing but anyone who is using headway should be able to make sense of it πŸ™‚

    Cool, I can somehow see how this workaround is functioning. Big thanks for this update, we truly appreciate it! πŸ™‚

    As always β€” if you have any questions or if you stumble upon any problems (let’s hope not, though!), do not hesitate to let me know! I’ll gladly help!

    Take care & have a nice day!


    Great, thank you again for your help!
