[SOLVED] Hide certain categories from main page?

I'd like to be able to exclude posts of a certain category from being displayed on the main page.

I'm trying to find a way to do this with plugins, to no avail (there are many options, but none so far I can find that work with Wordpress 2.9).

I use Atahualpa (old version - 3.2 - but am willing to upgrade if necessary) and was hoping there was an "easy" way to do it. I see it can exclude categories from showing on the category list... but is there any way to have it exclude all posts of a given category from the main page?

thanks!

Don't worry whether is says "compatible up to WordPress 2.9" in the repository. Many of the older plugins work just fine. Worst case is you have to ftp to the site and delete the plugin.

Well if you were on 3.4.4 you could wrap the code in 'The LOOP' option with some php code like
<?php if (is_front_page()) and (!in_category(xx')) { ?>
.
.
.
<?php } ?>
where you would put the category id in-place of the xx

A plugin you could try is Frontpage Manager. It let's you choose which categories to show on the front page along with how many paragraphs, characters, or words to show.

What must I write inside if I want to display static page instead list of posts?

By the way, Frontpage Manager doesn't support this possibility.

shus what do you mean by a 'static pages'?

What is displayed as your landing page (ie your blog or some other page) is controled by WordPress (see dashboard->settings->general)

If you are using the 'category' plugin, it is designed to display all the posts that are in that category. If you want to display pages, use the 'pages' plugin.

Plugins are not part of Atahualpa - Atahualpa is a theme that helps you in the look of your website. It sounds like you are new to wordpress, so I suggest you visit http://codex.wordpress.org/New_To_Wo...Where_to_Start and do some reading.

I try to find suitable plugin and tested some of them.

Usually they can regulate number of posts at the front page, but can't put page instead list of posts.
And FrontPage Manager too.

Be aware that one person on this forum had a problem with Frontpage Manager and WP 2.9 so a new update for FPM may be in the works.

I checked my site that had Front Page Manager installed and saw no issues with WP 2.9.

None of these solutions worked for me on Wordpress 3/Atahualpa 3.5.3. So, I found my own solution. In case I'm not the only one with this issue, I posted my solution on another thread here.
