So I've searched and searched and spent a few hours sticking code in various templates withing a child theme I'm doing for TwentyEleven, but to no avail.
From section on WordPress Codex about the Loop, it seems I should be putting this:
<?php query_posts($query_string . '&cat=-38'); ?>
<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
But it doesn't seem to have any effect no matter where I put it.
The set up is this:
Front page displays a static page:
Page called Welcome set as Front Page.
Page called The Blog set as the Posts Page (default template).
There's a category I don't want to appear on this Posts page. How do I make that happen?
I've set up a page showing just this category (id 38) which works, so I know the category number is correct.
Can someone please let me know which template I need to add the above code? I've tried quite a few!!
Alternatively, is there a way to do this via the functions.php in the child theme?
Any help much appreciated.
