Limited Categories On Blog

Recommended Posts

Eileen Starbuck

Is there a way to limit which categories appear on the blog page? I create 'product reviews' and I don't want them always appearing on the blog page.

Do you mean that you want to control posts appearing (or not) on the blog page or an entire category?

just the blog page...(main home page). I want to post product reviews but I don't want the reviews constantly showing up on the blog page. I want to leave the blog for different types of articles, etc.

In that case, I'd suggest using a plugin called Special Recent Posts. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/special-recent-posts/ which allows you to pull posts (emulating the loop) via a customized shortcode. You can pull them by category and only apply shortcodes for the categories you want to appear.

hmmmm....I've tried that plugin but I wasn't getting the results I wanted across my site. (...maybe I need to revisit.) But let me ask a dumb question. Is there anything wrong with creating the 'product reviews' as PAGES? This way they wouldn't show up as posts in the blog...

Nothing wrong with pages at all. They just won't be listed automatically anywhere. You'll need to create a list of your own, manually. Just to explain, with Special Recent Posts it's all about the shortcode you assemble. Each element of SRP has its own CSS tags too, so you can style as you wish.
