I'm using [catlist categorypage=yes post_type=page] in the sidebar to display a list of pages with the same category as the current page. Wonderful, but it returns a link to the current page.

Is there a simple way to exclude the current page from the results?

You're using a shortcode. Where does it come from? –  kaiser Mar 8 '12 at 14:08

I believe so.

I think this is the plugin you're using: https://github.com/picandocodigo/List-Category-Posts

The doc says you can use excludeposts, so you'd use:

[catlist categorypage=yes post_type=page excludeposts=<ID_OF_PAGE>]

Yes, @Kelley van Evert is right, it is List-Category-Posts. –  caroig Mar 9 '12 at 8:04
Yes, @Kelley van Evert is right, it is List-Category-Posts. The shortcode is in a widget on all pages, so excludeposts would be fine if it would retrieve the current page id, but I don't think it will accept a variable. –  caroig Mar 9 '12 at 8:12
I see. I forked and pull-requested a little fix for that @ github, but that probably won't change your situation quickly. A second solution would be to use javascript. The displayed post ID is always present as a javascript variable, and you could also get the title; Now if you could identify the link via CSS, using the title and/or ID, then you could remove it with javascript. Could you give us an example of generated markup? –  Kelley van Evert Mar 10 '12 at 10:08
Hey kelly, I was looking at the code yesterday and had thought of extending excludeposts, to take a value of 'this' in addition to the IDs as current "[catlist excludeposts=this,52,37]" - either way, I'll probably patch my version of the plugin until the owner gets an update. It feels like a fairly basic requirement. –  caroig Mar 10 '12 at 14:58
Just a heads up to let you know I fixed this on the plugin. It's currently working on the Github version so a new release with this and other changes will be available soon: 0.24 –  Fernando Briano Apr 19 '12 at 7:04
