Can't get the darn thing to work properly

  • Hi, I have installed this in my sidebar. I wanted to filter out a bunch of Media library categories, and only show blog post categories. But I can only get this widget to display ALL the categories.

    When I type in the ID numbers of the media categories into the ‘Hide Categories’ box, and click save, then ALL the categories disappear from my sidebar.

    Tried typing a ‘1’ into the ‘Hide Empty Categories’ box to see if that would filter out the non-blog categories, but that didn’t work either.

    Hopefully you can suggest what might be going wrong, or I’ll have no option but to delete the widget, as it doesn’t function for me.

  • Hello,

    I am using this plugin and it works fine for me.
    Usually this can happen if you have an other plugin or custom code somewhere that interfears with this one.

    I assume you enter the ID like this:


    Did you try deactivating every other plugin and see if it still does not work? Did you try activating for example Twenty eleven theme and see if this happens?

    Good luck,

    Sorry, I just couldn’t get it to work. In the end I just removed the categories from all non-blog post (media items), seemed the easier thing to do. Thanks though anyway Annie.

    Hi Frank,

    Too bad you did not get it to work, good luck!
