    I’m wondering if I can exclude posts from a specific category from displaying on the main blog page of my wordpress.COM blog.

    I’m not talking about a widget, and I’m not talking about wordpress.ORG. I would still want a link to that category in the category list.

    thanks,
    Paul

    The blog I need help with is nicepaul.wordpress.com.

    Nope, you can’t modify core queries on .com. If you just wanted to link to the homepage without that category shown, and the category ID was 123, you add ?cat=-123 to the link.

    Thanks Matt. That’s a shame.

    I’m in the process of moving nicepaul.com from a WordPress.org site to a hosted WordPress.com site because of problems with hackers and malware. Still getting used to the limitations over here! But robust simplicity is more appealing right now than the potentially unstable flexibility of hosting it myself.
