Remove Posts in Category From Homepage


This plugin allows WordPres admins to prevent posts in a given category from displaying on the homepage / main loop as well as the RSS feed.

Two new checkbox will display on the “Add New Category” and “Edit Category” screens — it’s that simple!


  • The checkbox appears on the "Add New Category" and "Edit Category" forms.


Installation is easy:

  1. Upload remove-category-from-loop.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Will posts in given categories still display within the RSS feed?

A new option has been added to additionally remove posts in a category from the main RSS feed

What are the plugin’s option keys?

The option keys are remove-loop-cats and remove-loop-rss; all categories marked not to display in the main loop are stored in this option to keep the DB footprint as low as possible.

This is awesome! Gets the job done with just a few clicks. I've tried many other plugins before, and this is by far the best.
