[SOLVED] Removing a Post from the Recent Posts Category

Does anyone know if there is a way to remove a post from the recent post category, without deleting it? (I have a post that's really a news item but it's showing up in the recent post category.) www.womenscycling.ca/blog

Thanks in advance for your help.

You will either have to alter the posts date or edit the post to skip the specific post.

Because it's a "news" post I don't want to change the time stamp. Can you tell me what you mean by "edit the post to skip the specific post"?

Thanks for your help,

I found the answer in an older posting by Flynn

Get PHP widget and put this code in:

$recentPosts = new WP_Query();
<?php while ($recentPosts->have_posts()) : $recentPosts->the_post(); ?>
<li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
<?php endwhile; ?>

"showposts" is the number of posts you want to show and -XX,-YY,-ZZ are the categories you want excluded.

Thanks Flynn
