Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)

This has been appearing at the bottom of my blog posts for about a year I guess.  I sometimes get some ‘hits’ from appearingly random blogs.

But recently the ‘related posts’ have become more and more obscure.  I won’t go into details, but some have been disturbing (not obscene, but clearly written by people who have a different, and much less tolerant view of life than I have).

To turn this feature off (which is on by default), under the new WordPress dashboard, Select ‘Appearance’, then ‘Extras’, and ensure ‘Hide related links on this blog, which means this blog won’t show up on other blogs or get traffic that way’ is checked.  Yes, you have to select a function to ensure it’s not enabled!

I’m not that desparate for the traffic that I need these hits, and I would argue that the screen space saved would make this sacrifice worthwhile for most bloggers.
