hiding some categories from archive widget

  1. I've had to make some categories simply to display content on the hero slide of my Soundcheck theme.

    I don't want this category visible on the archive widget. Is there away to remove/hide it?

    The blog I need help with is songsfromthehowlingsea.com.

  2. I don't see that option in the widget http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/archives-widget/
    I don't see it in the Categories widget either http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/categories-widget/

  3. As you purchased theme support directly from the theme designer in the premium themes forum I think that's where you will find your answer in case the theme has some special widget features.

    Read-access to the premium themes forum is now open to all users so you can search to see if your question has been previously asked and answered there. The premium theme forums are at http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/ with separate sections for each theme. http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/forum/soundcheck

    If you are not successful when searching there is a link for the specific Premium Theme support forum for your theme under Appearance -> Themes in your blog’s Dashboard, but do note that the premium theme must be active and you must be signed in as the user who purchased it in order to see it and post to it.

  4. Don't forget you have the Custom Design upgrade!
    Assuming you mean the category "Hero Slides", you can hide it from the widget this way:

    .widget_categories .cat-item-80815232 {
    display: none;
    }
  5. great thanks. I also wanted to hide two others so reposted the code three times with different numbers.

    It worked but could i just have listed all thee numbers within the css code you supplied? (I tried one way but it didn't seem to work)

  6. You're welcome.

    Yes, in general it's better not to multiply things unnecessarily: when you want to apply the same change to multiple elements, you write multiple selectors separated by commas instead of a single selector. So you could have written:

    .widget_categories .cat-item-1, .widget_categories .cat-item-293451, .widget_categories .cat-item-80815232 {
    display: none;
    }

    By the way (especially for the sake of other users who might see this question), you can do the same thing without CSS editing: you can create a custom menu in Appearance > Widgets, add only the categories you want to it, then replace the Categories widget with a Custom Menu widget and select the menu you created.
