Sometimes you just need to output some posts based on the post you are already on. You could place this code on your single post template and it would return 3 posts based on the categories said post are associated with. The
'post__not_in' => array(get_the_ID()), line ensures the post you are currently on doesn’t show in this list.
<?php $related_query = new WP_Query(array( 'post_type' => 'post', 'category__in' => wp_get_post_categories(get_the_ID()), 'post__not_in' => array(get_the_ID()), 'posts_per_page' => 3, 'orderby' => 'date', )); ?> <?php if ($related_query->have_posts()): ?> <ul> <?php while ($related_query->have_posts()): ?> <?php $related_query->the_post(); ?> <li> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a> </li> <?php endwhile; ?> </ul> <?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?> <?php endif; ?>
I am hoping in the near future this is something that can be achieved with the Full Site Editor and the Query block.
