I saw some plugins that help exclude a category from various areas of WP but none of them seem to work (they all have a laundry list of bug reports on forums). Is there a manual way to remove categories from:
Is there a way to design a custom page, search, archive and feed for these excluded categories?
I'm not trying to totally hide these categories all at once. I would just like to understand the method of doing so from each area. So for instance, what if I just want to hide it just from a feed? Or what if I just want to hide it on the home page? How would this be done manually via functions.php, theme files, etc.
