In a previous tutorial, I showed how the current post can be excluded from the list of recent posts when we are on a single post page using a Code Block here.
By default the current post may appear in the recent posts list:
We can use
pre_get_posts action hook to set
post__not_in for the query to the current post's ID even if the query is a custom one like in the case of a Repeater thereby preventing the current post from appearing in the latest posts.
Edit the Oxygen Template that applies to singular posts.
Add a Repeater component and build the Div for each post. In my test site, I set up the featured image and a Div to appear next to each other with the Div having linked post title and excerpt showing 5 words.
If you would like to paste the Repeater from my test site as a starting point, follow these steps:
a) Install and activate Code Snippets plugin.
Go to Snippets > Add New.
Title: Custom excerpt
