    Hi,
    I use the nativ WP “category” widget to display the list of categories into my blog page.

    1) I do not want to display all the categories. I would like to hide several categories into this list (without hiding any post displayed in the blog page!)
    what is the way to do that?

    2) Is there a way to filter (exclude specifics taxonomies) the posts displayed into the Blog content?
    I wonder where the limit is between nativ GP Blog and WPSHOWPOST. In this case I could either
    * GP Bloc + Filter php ? (exluding some tag)
    * or Keeping the nativ Post + Disabling Blog nativ GP + creating new archive page with WPSHOWPOST displaying Post (excluding some Tag)
    * Or create a dedicated Custom Post Type and a dedicated Archive page(with WPSHOWPOST)

    thank

    Hi there,

    1. Try this function:

    function custom_category_widget($args) {
    	$exclude = "1,2,3"; // Category IDs to be excluded
    	$args["exclude"] = $exclude;
    	return $args;
    }
    add_filter("widget_categories_args","custom_category_widget");

    2. Exclude posts by taxonomy – this topic should help:
