Excluded Categories still show up

Recommended Posts


Dear Ellen,


I am not sure if it is a mistake or misunderstanding on my side or if something is going wrong: Filtering is working great, as ever. But I am using it on two different pages of my site, and would like to display different posts. That is no problem, of course, the different posts have different categories which I can include or exclude through the Editor.  But as soon as I use Tags for the taxonomy it overrides the exclusion of Categories. My are ordered into two categories - one is for librarians, the other for activities - but both are tagged with the library where they work/take place). Is there something I could do differently? Or is it just not possible to have a taxonomy based on Tags but exclude entire Categories?

Thank you for your care. Yours gratefully, Jan.



P.S.: Here are both instances of Filtering, in case it is useful to illustrate my predicament:

caspersjan Unfortunately Filtering deals with including/excluding either categories or tags, whichever you have selected for your taxonomy. You can't have the taxonomy post_tags and then try to exclude categories. That would be a custom query. If you are interested in customizing Filtering with that query send me a private message.


If I'm not understanding the problem correctly, please let me know.

      Previous webmaster has made short codes assigned to certain categories. For example: [pl_section section="loops" id="003"]  displays all the Job posts for tech. 
      But where can I assign a short code for a certain category? I can't find where to add the loop ID for the category.
      Thank you

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.

      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template?
