Support » Fixing WordPress » Exclude a category from the loop

  • Sorry, this is a follow up to an earlier related post, but I want to exclude a category from the loop. I’ve seen related posts and know what I have to do (I just don’t know the exact syntax, but basically I know I need to add this:

    <?php query_posts(cat=’-4′); ?>

    to this:

    <?php
    		$page = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
    		query_posts("showposts=4&paged=$page");
    		?>
    
    		<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    
    		<?php get_template_part('content','archive'); ?>
    
    		<?php endwhile; ?>

    …except I don’t know exactly, precisely, how to phrase the code. If you could show me exactly how to include it that would be great, but (even better) recommend a GREAT SOURCE for learning to write WP’s propietary .php code.

    Thank you,

    John
