In this code snippet, I’ll show you how easy it is to display related posts from custom post type in wordpress. You can add the below following code to functions.php.

The Code Snippet:

// get the custom post type's taxonomy terms

$custom_taxterms = wp_get_object_terms( $post->ID, 'your_taxonomy', array('fields' => 'ids') );
// arguments
$args = array(
'post_type' => 'your_custom_post_type',
'post_status' => 'publish',
'posts_per_page' => 3, // you may edit this number
'orderby' => 'rand',
'tax_query' => array(
        'taxonomy' => 'your_taxonomy',
        'field' => 'id',
        'terms' => $custom_taxterms
'post__not_in' => array ($post->ID),
$related_items = new WP_Query( $args );
// loop over query
if ($related_items->have_posts()) :
echo '<ul>';
while ( $related_items->have_posts() ) : $related_items->the_post();
    <li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
echo '</ul>';
// Reset Post Data

<!-- end custom related loop, isa -->

Now enjoy!..
