Display Related Posts Based On Category Without Plugin

If you looking for display related posts on your post/view page? then here we have a solution to display the related posts based on category in your WordPress site. Without plugin is always the best way I recommend you because this only helps you to maintain your website performance.

Use the below code in your end of post content on a single.php (Single Post) template. This will display a maximum of 5 related posts on your single.php page, if you like to increase the post then you can change ‘numberposts’ count also any other customization.

The above code will display the related post title and content. If you like to display any other things ( for example Image and Short Content of the post ) the following will help you.
