When \citeing an article which has a pages defined in the bibtex source, and if passing a page argument, biblatex display both.

Example: \cite[42]{Key} will result in something like:

Author, "Title", Journal, etc., p.31-52, p.42.

If I'm not passing any page number (42), it's fine to have the page range (31-52). But if I am, I'd rather not, and have only:

Author, "Title", Journal, etc., p.42.

Can this be done ?

did you try the citepages=omit package option? – PLK Jul 10 '12 at 13:04
