Front Page Category

Description

Front Page Category is a plugin that let you select the categories that appear on the front page of your website. If there are categories that you don’t want to appear on front page, for example the ‘uncategorized’ one, just go to the Customizer → Front Page Categories menu, and then untick the categories you want to hide.

This could be useful if you use an automated posting system, or use email to post. In these cases you can assign these posts to a category of your choice and uncheck it at Front Page Category settings. They will then be hidden from the homepage – but will still appear on their category page.

Installation

  1. Download the zip and unzip the ‘front-page-category.zip’ file into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Visit Front Page Category in the Customizer, and uncheck categories that you don’t want to show up on the front page.
  4. View your front page and confirm that your excluded categories are not showing.

Needs an update

Does not work when pages are categorized. Can you please add this feature to allow only categorized pages/posts to show up on the homepage/front page? Great work! Thanks!
