    I was using this plugin:
    http://www.gudlyf.com/archives/2005/03/08/wordpress-plugin-category-visibility/

    it doesnt seem to be working for the new version of WordPress 2.0.

    I need a way to block certain categories from showing up on the front page in "the loop". Is there any way to do this in the new 2.0 ? thanks!!

    google / look at wp_list_cats, namely: http://wiki.wordpress.org/wp_list_cats and notice the "exclude" option. maybe not as fancy as you'd like, but that would work.

    that function seems to just give a list of categories. What I was looking to do was to actually HIDE posts from appearing on the FRONT PAGE that were posted in CERTAIN CATEGORIES.

    Does anyone know how to do this in 2.0 ? Thanks!

    Not sure if this what you are looking for, but I use these two in combination.

    Private Categories 2

    and Category Visibility seems to be working without any problems for me..

    Maybe You can try this: Go get the plugin called opt-in front page from Semiologic.com. It works althought it hides the sidebar also.

    I have also tried this

    <?php query_posts('cat=9'); ?>

    9 is the number od the category you want to show. It works.

    Thanks to Jaycon
