We have a few articles that are rather lengthy and I’d prefer to break them up over two or three pages however…
I’m using the StarBox author box plugin and the Contextual Related Posts plugin so if I use page breaks our articles look like this:
StarBox author box
Related post suggestions
1, 2, 3, etc, page links
With the numbered page links appearing after the author box and related posts it’s far too easy for a reader to miss.
I’ve poked around in the settings for the plugins and the theme customisation but don’t see a simple way to move the numbered page links to the end of the article’s text body, before those two plugins, instead of after it. Any suggestions? Some code I could put in the Additional CSS?
Thanks in advance,

does the author box and related posts plugin provide an option to add using a function or shortcode ?
If so you can add them using a Hook Element:
generate_after_contenthook will place them below the post meta.July 22, 2020 at 6:36 am #1372078Joseph
I have no idea and wouldn’t even know where to look. Considering that I just had to google what a shortcode is… I have a feeling that this is out of my element (which is rudimentary as is).July 22, 2020 at 6:43 am #1372085DavidStaffCustomer Support
Lets see if we can fix that 🙂
If this is the StarBox plugin you’re using:
Then it provides this shortcode:
Shortcodes allow you to display things like what this plugin does anywhere you add the Shortcode.
So now we have the Shorcode.
1. Go to Appearance > GeneatePress and enable the Elements Module.
2. Then Appearance > Elements > New –> Hook
2.1 Give it a Title eg. ‘Author Box and More’
2.2 Add the
[starbox]to the Hook text field.
2.3 in the Hook List – select
2.5 Then go to the Display Rules Tab > Location: Select Posts >> All Posts.
2.6 Publish the element.
Now you should see the AuthorBox is below the post content.
Let me know if that works and provide me a link to the Related Posts plugin you’re using and we can tackle that next.July 22, 2020 at 7:04 am #1372106Joseph
Damn. The GP team really does go the extra mile for their customers. 🙂
I’ll play around with that a little later and let you know.
In the meantime, the related post plugin I use is this: https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/contextual-related-posts/July 22, 2020 at 7:53 am #1372304DavidStaffCustomer Support
We try 🙂
So that plugin provides this shortcode:
Which you can add inside the same Hook, just add it on a line before ( or after ) the other shortcode.
More info on that shorcode here:

Unfortunately it didn’t work and it even duplicated the author box so the page now, top to bottom, is:
Page number links
Author box again
Kind of funny, actually. 🙂July 22, 2020 at 9:13 am #1372393DavidStaffCustomer SupportJuly 23, 2020 at 5:37 am #1373316Joseph
I’m going to tinker with these a bit when I have the time this weekend. For now, I just broke the article into three parts… one for each season since Captain Kirk kissed a lot of women. 😉
Again though, you folks are fab, going above and beyond to offer support.July 23, 2020 at 6:25 am #1373362
