I’m trying to exclude 4 category’s from the balance theme homepage grid.
Any snippets available?

Simply Exclude didn’t work.
I’ve tried stopping the category by adding the // exclude posts from this category// ( the code not the words in brackets ) in the homepage loop.
Never had this problem before.

Code not displaying? grab it on Github.
You can add a comma separated list of category I.d’s.

I see that. I’m trying to use the same grid that the balance theme uses.
This is my home.php code you’ll see the exclude category I tried to use. https://gist.github.com/thewebattic/5723987
I did try add the function you showed above but nothing happened again.
Thanks for the help so far

Hey still no joy here.
Also noticed that when I page through from the home page pagination it go’s back to the home page ??
Any more advice would be appreciatedJune 7, 2013 at 3:06 am #44483
This code has been tested on the Balance child theme and works.
Please remove this code from your home.php file
‘category__not_in’ => -13, // exclude posts from this category
Then paste this code at the end of your child themes functions.php file.
Code not displaying? Grab it from Github.
Please replace the 4 category i.d’s in the code with the i.d’s for the categories you want to exclude posts from displaying in.
This code removes all posts assigned to 4 categories from displaying on your home page if its set to display your latest posts. The code also excludes posts from those 4 categories from displaying in paginated pages linked to the home page.
Example: page 1,2,3 etc.

I added that code still no luck even tried installing the original functions.php file and home.php and the grid still shows the the category I’m trying to exclude category-13 and reloads the home page for the pagination links.
With that in mind do you think it’s possible I have settings in the Dashboard area that are conflicting with the code??
