    Hi guys!

    How do I achieve the following:

    1 Use ALB for posts
    2 Display related entries and comments at the bottom of a post

    I’d prefer not to add content elements by hand, when creating new posts. That way I’d be able to add comments, but I’m still missing a content element for Related Entries.

    Support tickets I could find on this issue are usually 4-5 years old so I’m figuring there might be a better way of doing it :)



    Hey autopilotdk,

    You can use Classic editor for posts and add the Advanced Layout Builder elements with the help of the magic wand tool if you don’t want to add the comment box manually.

    Best regards,


    Hi Victoria!
    Thanks for the suggestion :)
    The magic wand adds shortcode, which, once inserted, can only be edited by editing the text – you can’t use the graphical GUI to edit inserted shortcode.


    Just asking because the users are not code savvy, and prefer graphical editors :)


    Also: How do I use the magic wand to insert Related Entries?

    Thanks :)


    Hi autopilotdk,

    Yes, the magic wand does not have a gui, and related entries should show up or can be added by the blog posts element with the proper category.

    Best regards,


    Alright – thanks :) So using ALB kind of breaks the built in functionality of blog posts. Or at least means you’ll have to do a bit of manual work. I get it now!

    I ended up adding to template-builder.php

    echo $content;

    //show related posts based on tags if there are any
    if(is_singular(‘post’)) get_template_part( ‘includes/related-posts’);

    That’ll add the Related Posts to a post created using ALB.

    Is there a similar trick for adding the Social media sharing buttons?

    Thanks in advance :)


    Hi autopilotdk,

    Please have a look at the following thread
