    Hi Hector,

    A cool improvement for WPP would be an option to exclude the current post from the widget

    That would avoid people to click on a link to a post where they already are

    Hi ant123,

    Yes but that could be a bit confusing, too. People would be like "hey, where's the entry? I saw it listed there before, could it be a bug?". Instead, maybe it'd better if the current post is highlighted on the list so people know that's what they're reading right now.

    What do you think?

    I think, as long as it's just an option, it's up to the webmaster/blogger to decide.

    I came to this idea, after having discovered in Google Analytics "In-Page Analytics" (a tool that lets you see where people click) that the most clicked link was the one to the same post in WPP.
    In a way, that's not very surprising, when you consdider that the title of the current post is the most relevant/related topic compared to what people are reading on the page.

    Another solution would be to simply remove the a href tag for the current post

    Keep me posted

    I like the second idea. I'll give it some thought and come back to you later.

    I think highlighting + removing the a href would be the most understandable option

    Thanks for the effort anyway

    First, the best plugin in this category so far :)

    I would very much like to be able to offset the latest posts from the list.
    In other words; be able to exclude the x latest posts or posts from the x last days/hours.
    This way my 5 latest posts wouldnt end up on top all the time :)
