[resolved] Categories to Exclude (3 posts)

    How does 'Categories to Exclude' work? Does it:

    - not show related posts on single post pages that are in an excluded category? or;
    - not show related posts which are in an excluded category?

    If a post is in 2 categories and 1 of them is excluded, what happens?

    The first option. So related posts won't be shown on posts that are in a specific category. If a post is in one of the excluded categories, related posts won't be shown there.

    We don't think this is very useful or intuitive and we are changing this in the next weeks.
    How would you want this feature to work?

    I would prefer the latter way. I often have posts that are relevant when published but not very useful some time later. I could add a hidden category to which I add those posts when they cease to be relevant and exclude that category from related posts. Those articles would not show up in related posts and there would be more visibility for more useful articles.

    If I needed to exclude related posts from appearing in posts of some category I could use WordPress conditional tags to do that (I am inserting the code manually).
