    Hello friends

    I have a couple of web sites with different themes . I just want to learn how to remove the appearance of some categories from my homepages without moving the category itself.

    For example , there ım usng mimbo pro in 1 of them , and I have to create a category for Lead, for my post to seem at the big picture . I want lead category to stay but dont want its appearance on my home page .

    Thanks

    Use the search term "category exclude plugin" here on these forums or via your favorite web search engine. There are several plugins that'll do exactly what you're after.

    Hi,

    You can also exclude a category by using the ID number. You can find the ID number by hovering over the name of the category in the WP admin and looking at the status bar in your web browser.

    <?php wp_list_categories('orderby=name&exclude=276&title_li='); ?>

    hi Handy Solo and kwbridge

    I have tried what u suggested to me, its a nice plugin, but I am using premium theme which I think works different than others .

    When I hide the lead category , it also hides the lead pictures .

    Can you please tell me a little more about how to do it manually,I am not so pro on this things (<?php wp_list_categories('orderby=name&exclude=276&title_li='); ?>)

    thanks

    I'm not an expert here but if the lead picture is associated with the category being hidden, then the image isn't going to show up.

    I have written an article about excluding a category that has more detailed instructions.

    I am not positive this will work the same in the Premium Theme.
