Support » Fixing WordPress » Theme Function: Posts per page, & category exclude.

  • Ashley Michèlle



    I am having an issue getting my categories to be effectively hidden from the home page…

    I’m not sure why the code isn’t working, but I think I might possibly have some coding conflict.

    in my Theme Functions, I have the following:

    function limit_posts_per_page() {
    	if ( is_home() )
    		return 9;
    		return 99; // default: 99 posts per page

    And also:

    add_filter('pre_option_posts_per_page', 'limit_posts_per_page');
    function limit_posts_per_archive_page() {
    	if ( is_category() )
    		set_query_var('posts_per_archive_page', 99); // or use variable key: posts_per_page
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'limit_posts_per_archive_page');
    function my_home_query( $query ) {
      // not an admin page and is the main query
      if (!is_admin() && $query->is_main_query()){
         //cat=-94, -158"."&posts_per_page=9
          $query->set('cat', -94, -158);
          $query->set('posts_per_page', 9);
    add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'my_home_query'

    If anyone could help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you in advance!
