[resolved] Prevent same post in multiple loops (3 posts)

    I'm using this on my single.php to retrieve both the similar posts (using the same tags) and the popular posts (using comment count) as well. There is a problem, though. How to prevent similar posts to show up as popular posts too?

    re 1.
    turn all tag ids into one array;

    re 2.
    use the 'post__not_in' in the second loop, with an array of collected post ids.

    Ah, dumb me — I completely forgot I could do that using 'post__not_in'. Thank you!
