    Show all attachments for the current post except the Featured Image
    To get all post attachments except the Featured Image, you can use this function with something like get_posts().

    Do this inside The_Loop (where $post->ID is available).

    $args = array(
    	'post_type'   => 'attachment',
    	'numberposts' => -1,
    	'post_status' => 'any',
    	'post_parent' => $post->ID,
    	'exclude'     => get_post_thumbnail_id(),
    );
    
    $attachments = get_posts( $args );
    
    if ( $attachments ) {
    	foreach ( $attachments as $attachment ) {
    		echo apply_filters( 'the_title', $attachment->post_title );
    		the_attachment_link( $attachment->ID, false );
    	}
    }
