In this post, I am going to explain how to show more related posts in the article page using Jetpack WordPress plugin. If you have not activated Jetpack WordPress Plugin for your WordPress blog then visit WordPress jetpack plugin to download.

By default, Jetpack WordPress Plugin will show only 3 related posts in the content page. If you want to improve your appearance of the related post then you have to do small changes in the plugin setting.

Well, you don’t need to add any coding to change the number of posts to show in the thumbnails. It’s so simple.

All you have to do is find the coding in the Jetpack WordPress Plugin editor page and change the number of related post counts in a second.

Let’s get into the simple tutorial which will show how to change the related post count without adding any coding in the Jetpack WordPress Plugin. If you want to customize Jetpack WordPress Plugin related post setting like colour, theme size and others then you should know coding well in order do it.

If you don’t know how to change the entire Jetpack WordPress Plugin setting via editor page then don’t do it.

This is where you’ll be changing a number of posts on your blog. You can choose any number of posts to appear on your blog. Click the second Jetpack WordPress Plugin link post.php from the edit page to change the number of posts to show within your post.

If you are unable to find the code you may copy this code to locate – ( $this->_options[‘size’] = 3; )

Search by using keyboard keys Ctrl+F option. Once you hit that code you may change to any number of Related posts to show on your blog.

By default Jetpack WordPress Plugin, related post number will be 3. I have already changed to 6 so you need to change to 6 or any number that you want to change.

Now save the editing page and refresh your blog. Now Jetpack WordPress Plugin will show more related posts within your content or article pages. Thank you. 


  1. Do you know if your steps work with the updated Jetpack? I followed everything you said, but don’t see a 3 anywhere in the code. If you have any suggestions, I’d appreciate it, thanks!

    1. Hi Becky,

      Thanks for the update. Yes this is for the latest jet-pack plugin only. I have updated a code for you. Please copy the same and search it. You’ll find it.

      Here is the code – $this->_options[‘size’] = 3;

      After that you can change to any number from 3 to 6 or as your choices. Hope it helps. Still not finding! Let me know so that I can create a video demonstration for you. Thanks.
