WordPress tutorials: Exclude categories

Wpsnipp  – Exclude categories.Adding this PHP code to your wordpress functions.php file will allow you to exclude categories from your RSS feeds. Make sure to use a minus before the category id.This is probably the fastest way to exclude category in WordPress besides using a plugin.

 

 

Dump this code anywhere in Theme’s template ‘function.php’file (For example, ‘function.php’ file for a Theme named “default” would probably reside in the directory wp-content/themes/default/functions.php):

function excludeCat($query)
{
   if ($query->is_feed)
      {
       $query->set('cat','-49');
      }
   return $query;
}
add_filter('pre_get_posts','excludeCat');
