Support » Fixing WordPress » How to COMPLETELY hide a category?

  • I am currently changing the focus of my website (in maintenance now so I can’t link to it) and therefore, some categories I’ve created in the past are now pretty much redundant. For example, on my old website I’ve posted news about a certain topic, but I won’t do that with my new website. I still want to keep my news archive though, but I don’t really want it to show ANYWHERE on the website. Basically making it only available trough either google or the backend of the website. Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks for your input. I tried this one and it does exactly what it says, but not more than that. For example, the default Categories-widget will still show whatever you’ve excluded. And I am using the Glob theme, using widgets to create a dynamic frontpage with optional even random articles, and if I’d use that the old ones can still show up.

    Maybe whatever I want is just too complicated, but I’d stil wanted to try 🙂
