Excluding a category in recent posts (3 posts)

    I'm using a plug-in, TDD Recent Posts, and was wondering if there was anyway to 'globally override' the plug-ins settings to exclude a category from its list . . . or is it only possible to exclude a category by manipulating the plug-in?

    I've added the plugin tag for you but you're probably better off contacting the author as it seems not many people has used it.

    @matius,

    This is a much older plug-in using the old widgets API and some pretty hackish direct SQL calls (rather than using the WP_Query class). My first recommendation would be to use another plug-in to get the functionality you want.

    My second recommendation, though, would be to modify the SQL query in output.php such that you're excluding the category you want to exclude.
