preventing posts in a particular category from showing up (6 posts)

    Hello
    I have this question.

    I want to exclude all the posts in a particular category X from showing up in the widget with the recent posts list.

    Moreover, I would like to exclude these posts from showing up anywhere in the blog. That is to say, I do not want either any link to them or showing themselves except if someone goes to the url address of the post straight away.

    How can I do this?

    Thanks

    I just tried that. The plugin activated successfully. I excluded a particular category from main page, feeds and archives.

    However, I still see the:
    - category listed in the categories widget
    - the posts in the category listed in the recent posts widget
    And those were the links that I wanted to hide from the widgets section.
    Is there anything wrong with what I did? or is it just that this plugin is not exactly what I was looking for?

    Thanks
