[resolved] Removing category list from PressPlay theme (9 posts)

    I love the look of the PressPlay theme, but I'd like to do away with the large list of categories at the top of the page under the blog title (my blog: http://whitenoiseinsanity.com/). What do I have to do in the editor to either remove that section entirely or to reduce the number of categories down to only a handful? Would love to know! ;-)

    plugin
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-category-excluder/
    pick and choose ones you want displayed if any

    manually
    open theme's index.php and amend or remove category code

    <?php
    wp_list_categories('title_li='); ?>

    should look similar
    you can exclude categories by ID, like

    <?php
    wp_list_categories('exclude=4,7&title_li='); ?>

    replace with your actual category ID's

    Okay, I originally called this resolved when it's not. :-( Here's the code I have in index.php:

    [code redacted]
    What code would I remove from here? I'm too nervous to delete anything at this point! :-)

    Hi,
    I'm sorry, I told you the wrong file.
    It's the theme's header.php

    Thank you! It worked. I removed this code from the header.php:

    <ul id="category-list">
    <?php wp_list_categories('title_li='); ?>
    <!-- #category-list -->

    Okay, now this issue is resolved! Thanks so much Samboll.

    For future reference:

    I got asked this all the time, so version 2.1 of this theme (out today) provides theme options which let you hide the list, or replace it with the Pages list.

    I can see the theme options...
    However, I have a similar problem: Is it possible to have a different menu instead of these 3 choices (list of Pages/list of Categories/Display nothing)? I mean, a custom menu with some links to articles, some links to pages, external, etc?
