Support » Themes and Templates » list_cats issue…planning on skinning the cats alive in a second

  • Resolved orange2apple


    Yet another issue I am sure requires only a simply fix. ATTEMPTING to exclude some categories from appearing in the sidebar. Used a plug-in that did nothing but remove the excluded category posts from the main section. And then did the following:

    wp_list_categories('orderby=name&show_count=1&exclude=11, 12, 13, 14, 15'); ?>

    In the sidebar.php. It did nothing

    Then did:

    <div id="category"> <li class="sidebar-spacer"></li>
    <li><h2><?php _e('Categories'); ?></h2>
    <ul><?php list_cats(0, '', 'name', 'asc', '', 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0,'','','orderby=name&show_count=1&exclude=11, 12, 13, 14, 15','','') ?></ul>

    In sidebar.php. Did nothing.

    I think you had it right the first time, but probably remove the spaces, so it looks like this


    Nope. That did not do it. Grrr… This makes no sense.

    Is your theme using the sidebar widgets? In that case no editing has any effect: everything that is hardcoded in your sidebar is over-written by the widgets.

    You are editing the right file? And it is not a widget in the sidebar?

    Ah…buggering hell…it is indeed a widget. All I need do is remove the widget?

    I do have this in the sidebar.php:

    <div id=”category”> <li class=”sidebar-spacer”>

  • <h2><?php _e(‘Categories’); ?></h2>
      <?php wp_list_cats(0, ”, ‘name’, ‘asc’, ”, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0,”,”,’exclude=11,12,13,14,15′,”,”) ?>
  • </div>

    But if I remove the widget, nothing replaces the category info. The code above does nothing.

You can’t have both: either widgets or handcoded sidebar.
You have to remove ALL the widgets to have the handcoded version displayed…

Warning: if you do that, be aware that the template tag you are using is deprecated:

Ah hell….and no way to configure that widget eh?

Never mind…found a better widget..will just deal with the cats I don’t want showing, showing.

You do not have to be clairvoyant to volunteer in this forum but it certainly helps…………:)
