Jetpack: remove a post from the Top Posts Widget

in WordPress

If you use the Jetpack plugin, you’re probably familiar with the Stats module. Once you’ve activated the module, you can also use the Top Posts widget to display a list of the most popular posts on your site.

But what if there is one post that you never want to display there, even if it’s a popular one? You can exclude specific posts from the widget thanks to the jetpack_widget_get_top_posts filter.

To do so, paste the following code into a functionality plugin:

function jeherve_remove_post_top_posts( $posts, $post_ids, $count ) {
	foreach ( $posts as $k => $post ) {
		// Replace 1215 by the ID of the Post you want to remove
		if ( '1215' == $post['post_id'] ) {
			unset( $posts[$k] );
		}
	}
	return $posts;
}
add_filter( 'jetpack_widget_get_top_posts', 'jeherve_remove_post_top_posts', 10, 3 );
