Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
I do not want the latest obituary posts showing up in the Recent Posts sidebar widget on the left.
http://larchmontgazette.com/wp27/

I want to be able to exclude obituaries and maybe some other categories, in the future, from the sidebar widget. I tried the Advanced Category Excluder plugin, but it didn't do a thing for me. I don't see any other likely plugins when I search the Wordpress plugin directory.

Help!

Use one instance of the PHP code widget http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/php-code-widget/ and inside the widget put:
PHP Code:
<ul>
<?php
    $recentPosts 
= new WP_Query();
    
$recentPosts->query('showposts=5&cat=-XX,-YY,-ZZ');
?>
<?php 
while ($recentPosts->have_posts()) : $recentPosts->the_post(); ?>
    <li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
<?php endwhile; ?>
</ul>
In showposts=5&cat=-XX,-YY,-ZZ replace 5 with amount of posts and XX, YY and ZZ with the ID's of the categories that should be excluded

Interesting, but for one or another reason in my site it still shows all the categories. Wordpress 3.1, PHP 5.

Sorry to jump in, but I have a similar problem. I want to exclude a category from the next/previous listing on the single-post page. I've used a plug-in to disable the category from appearing on the home page, but it shows up in the sidebar listing of categories on the single-post page, and in the next/previous header. I'm not sure where in Atahualpa to look to edit this page template, or whether there's an easy way to keep the category out of these listings. Using theme v. 3.2, Wp v 3.1.1. Thanks.

Version 3.2?? Wow are you using an old version of Atahualpa.

The things in the sidebar are widgets. Without the site URL or knowing what widget you are using I can't tell you if it is an Atahualpa widget or from someone else. If it is from someone else then you have to look at the plugin code and/or contact the plug-in's author about this.

Yes, it is an older version. It took a while to get the site set up and customized, and I've been concerned that upgrading might break something, but I guess I have to take the plunge at some point.

An example of the single post page is here: http://tiffanyannlewis.com/blog2/?p=4678 You can see that the next post in the header is a date, which is the title of a post in the category called Itinerary. Itinerary shows up in the category list on the right, but if you go to the home blog page, it does not, as I intended it. I'm using a plugin called Category Exclusion.

So I'm wondering where in the code I can go to get Itinerary Category to not show up in the category list on the single post page, and not appear in the Next Post listing as well. I'm using the theme's default Category widget, modified by a plugin called Category Order.

Thanks for your help, and please let me know if you need more info.

So you are using the 'Categories' widget in the right sidebar...correct?

This widget is part of WordPress and not Atahualpa. What you should do is a google search on 'wordpress category plugin' and see if there is one that will let you exclude a category.

I use a combination of Enhanced Recent Posts and Widget Logic plugins to control placement of categories.
