Problem with hiding logic
By , for WP 4.3.1

In my site, I have a Blog page which shows all the posts categorized as Blog. I have another page which shows only the posts which are categorized as Premium. Also I can select posts having Premium category only from a side bar specific to this page.

I have used Content Aware Sidebar and Posts To Pages plugin to achieve this result.

The Blog page side bar has Search, Recent Post & archive option, Recent Post is showing only posts with Blog category but the rest two (Search & Archives) are showing all the above categories (Blog & Premium). I need only the posts from Blog category to be accessed through this side bar.

Is it possible to do this? Can anyone guide me up how to tackle this problem? From my description, it may seem a bit complicated, but this is the only way I found working for me.

I am doing a travel agency's website and I only wanted a few posts showing on the home page.
I activated the plugin, selected the categories I didn't want to see...and like magic they were gone. Thank you for a fantastic problemsolver!!!

Does not work for my scenario
By , for WP 4.2.2

On the front page, when I exclude a category, it excludes it both on the main content and in the sidebar. I wanted a category excluded from the main content, but not the sidebar. I tried all of the settings related to the main page, and nothing worked. This is true even for a widget that is just a specific category. Also, the plugin does not seem to be currently supported, and I could not find a way to submit a bug. I am trying to use the plugin on a website for cat adoptions. When a cat is adopted, the cat's category is changed from "available for adoption" to "adopted". We want to display the adopted cat's in a widget on the side (small pictures), but not on the main flow of the home page (large pictures). Except for this one scenario, the plugin works as described. And once you understand how to use it, it is easy to use. The website is http://scarletpawsanimalwelfare.org

Works great

I'm using a slider plugin that uses posts you select as the slides. I don't want these showing up in the main blog page.

I created their own category 'sliders' and then in this plugin I just selected that category to hide globally.

Poof, gone! :)

Read title. It's pretty self explanatory.

Easy Control, Advanced Options
By , for WP 3.6

I needed a way to control the listings in a drop-down menu of categories and this was the solution. This plug-in enabled me to exclude a category. There are other controls, too, which I'm sure I'll find useful in the future. Thank you for a great plug-in!
