Support » Plugin: Flexible Posts Widget » Not able to exclude category from index?

    Hi

    Love your plug-in which works great except that while it filters posts to be shown on my news page (i.e. only posts categorised as ‘news’ display on it). I’m not able to exclude the ‘news’ category from my blog page (which I use for other things). I have unchecked ‘news’ from the set of categories listed on the settings page but the ‘news’ items still remain stubbornly visible. Any idea what might be happening? Any help would be great.

    In case it helps my website is here http://www.leadwhite.co.uk

    cheers

    John

    Hi Garaiburu,

    FPW is only a widget. It doesn’t do any kind of filtering/storing of posts that are displayed in the main “loop” or listing of posts on your Blog or in a Category.

    You’d need to use a different tool or plugin to filter/hide/remove posts categorized as “News” from the default Blog listing as this is not a standard for WordPress. By default the Blog index is desgined to show all posts, regardless of category, tag, etc. FPW doesn’t change this; nor was it built to do so.

    Cheers,
