    I use a category as a tag to filter out certain posts that i use for my hacky database on my blog. i need to use the CRPW but exclude a category. i am happy to hardcode it into the widget, I just need a bit of help doing that. Would appreciate it if you have some code to do that!

    p.s. this is how i do it on the entry.php to filter out posts tagged with that category from being shown on the category page.

    <?php
    if (is_category()) {
    // assign the variable as current category
    $categoryvariable = $cat;
    
    // concatenate the query
    $args = 'cat=' . $categoryvariable . ',-162';
    
    // run the query
    query_posts( $args );
    }
    ?>
