Hiding Categories

  1. Searched for this topic and couldn't find an answer. Is there a way to hide certain categories on the category list on your main page? I want to hide some just so the list is shorter for readers but have them still be available (mostly for my own use).

    The blog I need help with is onlyfragments.com.

  2. I changed my categories widget to be a drop down box, for exactly that reason, it was getting too long. They are all there, but... you have to click on the box.

    Appearance/widgets/edit the category widget, click on "Show as dropdown"...

  3. The categories widget does have a dropdown as stated above > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/categories-widget/ It does not provide a means of "hiding" Categories.
    If you need to display only some of your categories you can build a Custom Menu and add only the Categories pages you want to display to it. Then display them in a custom menu widget.

  4. Ooh, those are both very good suggestions. Thanks!

  5. You're welcome from me. :)
