Front Page Category

Descripcion

Front Page Category is a plugin that let you select the categories that appear on the front page of your website. If there are categories that you don’t want to appear on front page, for example the ‘uncategorized’ one, just go to the Customizer → Front Page Categories menu, and then untick the categories you want to hide.

This could be useful if you use an automated posting system, or use email to post. In these cases you can assign these posts to a category of your choice and uncheck it at Front Page Category settings. They will then be hidden from the homepage – but will still appear on their category page.

Installacion

  1. Download the zip and unzip the ‘front-page-category.zip’ file into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Open the customizer and go to your websites front page (the settings will only display if the front page is the current page).
  4. Visit Front Page Category in the Customizer, and uncheck categories that you don’t want to show up on the front page.
  5. View your front page and confirm that your excluded categories are not showing.

I had installed the Ultimate Category excluder that is recommended everywhere but it did not do the job. I had checked a category to be excluded from the front page and it did not go away. Then I search for an alternative plugin and found this Front Page Category one. Just had to figure out the settings are in an additional menu item almost at the bottom in Customize -> Appearance -> Front Page Category menu item.

Plugin is easy to set up and use, and does exactly what I need it to do. And when the newest release didn't work quite right with my theme, the developer was quick to help out.
