[resolved] YES I'VE SEARCHED MY ASS OFF!! - Exclude category, just a DETAIL left?? (3 posts)

    First solution I found, simple one that is, to exclude a category in the sidebar.php is the following:
    <?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&exclude=1, 2, 3, 4'); ?>

    I simply used it in this tag:

    <?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&exclude=61'); ?>

    like this:

    <li class="sidebox">
    	<h2><?php _e('Pages'); ?></h2>
    	<ul><?php wp_list_pages('title_li=' . 'sort_column=name&exclude=61' ); ?></ul>
    </li>

    THOUGH!! I get the text "sort_column=name" printed above the categories!! (the category #61 dissapeared like wanted though!!)

    So you see, just a tiny little annoying detail left..

    Any solution ASAP?! (I'm totally new with PHP and I just took a shot at the "." seperation in the tag!!)

    Ha, SOLVED!! (that was quick for a newbie like myself!!)

    I just wrote &exclude=61 instead of sort_column=name&exclude=61

    (oh forgot.. for you other newbies like me.. 61 is the ID of the category! if you don't know the id, just hover the EDIT button in the [Manage] -> [Pages] page for the category you want to know the ID of, and it will show at the end of the URL in you browser statusbar!!)

    ahh yeah, one more detail, for you that may wonder (Of course I won't let you search YOUR ass of when I can just tell you straight away!! --> to add more categories to the exlude, just seperate by comma.. like such: 61, 55, 2, 45 ..and so on!)
