This method will allow you to have a category “ONLY” appearing in your sidebar but excludes posts from the front page
1- Added this code to “index.php”
(Notes: category # says -20, this # is the category I dont want on the front)
(also this needs to appear in your code before the loop)
(my excluded Category was 20, for more than one category use: -3,-20 (separate your categories with commas!)
2- Add the following code to your “index.php” file, but before the Loop
<?php query_posts($query_string . ‘&cat=-20’); ?>
This code will now exclude that category #20 from your home page posts BUT can be used to show up in one of yoru side bar plugins Continue reading WordPress: Exclude Category from Front Page – Still Show in Sidebar?
