    Hi guys,

    could you please tell me why I cannot deactivate my page to prevent them to be showing on related pages grid? I ticked the check box at page settings – ” Exclude from Related Content”. I even deleted that page. But anyway I can see it on related pages grid. Please advise.

  • How do you set the related content to only display posts from the category of the post you’re viewing?
