Exclude current page when using a content by label macro in Confluence Cloud

How can I exclude the current page in a 'Content by Label' macro in Confluence Cloud? I'm having a hard time finding information about that.

You can create an exclusion label and add it to the pages you want to exclude. For example "donotshow" and add it to the filter as "-donotshow" (with "-" before the label). In this case, the filter will exclude to all pages with the fist label that do not have the second label.


Hi @Spencer Holt ,

If you have the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app installed for your Confluence instance, I can suggest using the following workaround:

  • Set the reversed filter for the Title column (click on the "=" to exclude page titles). For example, here we don't show "The Table Filter Macro (new)" page. You may exclude your current page and any pages you wish

  • You may also filter other columns as well to get more precise results

Hope this will help your case.

Right now I doubt that my organization will purchase a new plugin/app, but thank you for the information.

I found a solution, that works for me. It is not perfect, because each time you edit the content by labels macro, you have to do the manipulation* again.


1. Choose the filter "With title"

2. Add the title of the page and put a "-" in front. The page will now be excluded. 

*ATTENTION: each time you edit the macro "Content by label" you have to reput the "-" in front of the Title. I don't know why the "-" disappears.

and of course, if you change the name of the page, you'll have to adapt it in the macro aswell....
