  • Is it possible to create a special category that is not included on any index and can only be accessed through it’s archive URL?

    Very probably, but Google will find it anyway …

    I don’t care if Google finds it; in fact, I plan on manually linking these pages on my site. 🙂
    The reason I don’t want them indexed on the front page or in the archives is because they’re going to be used as “content” pages. For example, my about page, etc. By managing it with WP I can enable comments and trackbacks, etc. But right now I can’t seem to prevent a category from appearing on the front page and archives.

    Are you using the latest nightly? If so there is a new function that could be used to do exactly what you want.
    Off the top of my head you could do this…
    In “the loop” after this line
    <?php if ($posts) : foreach ($posts as $post) : start_wp(); ?>
    put
    <?php if ($single || !in_category(999)) { ?>
    and then before this line
    <?php endforeach; else: ?>
    put
    <?php } ?>

    Oh…and replace the 999 with whatever category # is for your “special category”.
