Related articles doesn't exclude the current page

When I create new pages, the related articles list for that page always lists that page. It is silly for the page to "relate" to itself and takes up one of the related articles slots, preventing another relevant page from being show in its place.
How do I exclude the page from the list of related articles?

I'm seeing this issue as well, we're on the cloud version of Confluence.

The problem remains after 2+ years.  What's up?

I couldn't find any bug report for this behavior yet. Would be possible to state which version of confluence you are using?

Can you try to use the latest version of confluence as such this might have been fixed.

If you can provide the exact steps to reproduce the problem in the latest version that would be great so we can open a bug report if we are successful.



Stop being lazy, that's your job.


Four years and still no such simple option? To simply exclude current page?

We just switched to confluence/jira and what a productivity killer. I'm always spending time trying to figure out why basic things are just broken or have stupid behavior. I guess their motto is "just live with it".

This a To-Do, see JIRA Service Desk issue:
