WP Hide Categories


Hides selected categories from lists. You can manage this from your admin panel, so you don’t need to open template
codes to add exclude parameter to wp_list_categories function. Essentially it adds exclude parameter to wp_list_categories
function but it’s so easy now. You can manage via admin panel.

My other plugins


  1. Unzip into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s it 🙂
  4. Go admin panel and manage hidden categories.
