Support » Plugin: Ultimate Category Excluder » Exclude from Widgets?

  • This worked great to exclude a category from the archives but I also noticed I had a month where that was the only post and it showed on my archives widget. Plus it was still on my categories widget, so I wanted to offer up this code to exclude from the WP standard Categories and Archives widgets. If you have another method let me know, and I hope this helps!

    /* exclude categories from category widget */
    function exclude_widget_categories( $args ){
    	$args["exclude"] = '7'; //multiple = '7,8,9' using IDs from Posts=>Categories page in admin
    	return $args;
    /* exclude categories from archive list widget */
    function customarchives_join($x) {
    	global $wpdb;
    	return $x." INNER JOIN $wpdb->term_relationships ON ($wpdb->posts.ID = $wpdb->term_relationships.object_id) INNER JOIN $wpdb->term_taxonomy ON ($wpdb->term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = $wpdb->term_taxonomy.term_taxonomy_id)";
    function customarchives_where($x) {
    	global $wpdb;
    	$exclude='7'; //multiple = '7,8,9' using IDs from Posts=>Categories page in admin
    	return $x." AND $wpdb->term_taxonomy.taxonomy = 'category' AND $wpdb->term_taxonomy.term_id NOT IN ($exclude)";

  • Thanks for the code. I’ll play with it after I’m finished moving. Realistically it probably won’t be experimented with until November.

    Thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for. Very helpful

    Hi – looking interesting but I really need the solution Andrew appears to offer … where do you place that code Andrew? Do you have to manually edit those IDs in there or is there an admin panel/plug-in method for that?

    Thanks in anticipation
