Every time you add a new theme to your WordPress blog and you find that this theme show all your categories in a menu. The idea of excluding a category from the menu come directly to your mind.
Today I propose to change the categories menu you have in your home page to suit your needs.
Initially if you do not have this menu, and you still have the classic menu which include: Home, About, etc. …
all you have to do is using this small code in the place you think you want to show the menu in :
&lt;?php wp_list_categories('orderby=name&amp;title_li=0') ?&gt;
Now if you want to exclude a specific category add this ” &exclude=10” to your code to have something like that :
&lt;?php wp_list_categories('orderby=name&amp;title_li=0&amp;amp;exclude=10') ?&gt;
Where 10 is the category ID
If by any chance you want to exclude more than one category, you simply just add a comma after the number of the first category then enter the following number.
&lt;?php wp_list_categories('orderby=name&amp;title_li=0&amp;exclude=10,33,454') ?&gt;
