Can I prevent a specific category from showing in the category sidebar widget? In my case, I don't want "uncategorized" to show, as I've tailored categories in a heirarchy of named groups. I still need to keep 'uncategorized' as a category, since some posts will not pertain to any of the named groups, but I don't want 'uncategorized' inserting itself within the heirarchy in the sidebar.
I tried renaming it '.No taxon' (with the period to keep it outside of the heirarchy), but now I'm getting this nonsense term showing up in category clouds about my blog.
Maybe it isn't possible, but it sure would be nice to have a 'privacy' option for categories (as exists for 'links').
My search prior to posting provided no clues.
The blog I need help with is beetlesinthebush.wordpress.com.
