    It’s weird.
    Did this happened in the other taxonomy?
    Make sure you enter the right ID in the right taxonomy.

    I don’t use the other taxonomy. I only use categories. I went back and double checked that my category IDs are correct and they are correct. Is it possible to do “INCLUDE ID” instead of “EXCLUDE ID”? Maybe it is the number of categories. I have a lot of categories.

    Weird, it should not behave like this.

    If you want to use include id, you will need to edit the plugin file, which is not an ideal way.

    If you insist to use include id, you can goto html/search.php to look for the ‘exclude’ and replace with include

    I have found the issue. I somehow made double of the same categories. This plugin is awesome. Thanks for the work that you’ve done on it.

    For me the “Exclude ID” doesn’t work neither.
    Would you please tell me how you solved this problem?

    I use categories like this :
    For example, I excluded the IDs of “Date” and “Status” in the “Type” category but in my dropdown list I can still see all the categories and sub categiries.
    I also tried to exclude all the IDs of both categories and sub categories but it doesn’t work either.
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    It shouldn’t behave like this.

    Can you try to exclude category that don’t have child element? you can create a test category for the try.

    Thank you for your response. I removed child from categories but it has the same problem. I use “Portfolio plus” as theme and I have “portfolio category” and “portfolio tag”.

    You can see from the video on the link below that I tried to set “Date” as “portfolio tag” and it worked but I have still “Type” and “Status” which are in “portfolio category” and have the same problem.

    The link for the video is :

    Please let me know if I can do anything to solve the problem. Thanks

    I found your problem.
    The exclude ID is in NUMBER format. It is not the name/slugs of the term. You can view the term ID in the term edit page links.

    It look like this

    Notice the ‘tag_ID=19’, the number 19 is the term id that you should insert in the exclude ID field.

    Thank you very much.I fixed it as you said and it works perfectly as I expected.
    This plugin is awesome!
    Thanks for your quick help.
