  • Take a look at the WP Hide Post plugin.

    I will. Thank you @vtxyzzy.

    Just to follow up, this plugin did the job partially. It got rid of the unwanted latest posts on the home page, cleared the archives and the blog index of these posts. That’s a big help.

    Unfortunately, it did nothing to hide the category itself from the Topic list on all blog pages. Also, when you click the link for that category/topic on that list it take you to the an archive for that category (http://housepetality-petsitting.com/wordpress/category/testimonials) but it is devoid of posts. So I’d like to hide any mention of testimonials in any category list.

    I just tried to do it by hand by editing the php in wp-includes>default-widgets.php following some instructions, but it not only didn’t remove the category, but is also caused the posts to show up again on the home page, etc. I have fixed that, but can’t seem to hide the category.

    Any other ideas?

    OK, if you are using WP 3.0 it might work to make the posts a custom type. That would not show up anywhere unless you specifically request it. I don’t know what that would do to your Recent Posts plugin, though. You would probably need to replace that with some code of your own to select that post type.
