    I am running Genesis 1.9 with a custom child theme.

    I have a blog page and a couple of categories. I only want posts from one of those categories to show on the blog page however. I have gone into Genesis > Theme Settings > Blog Page Template and changed it to only show that particular category, but it still shows all the categories on the blog page.

    I’m a bit stumped as the settings in Genesis > Theme Settings > Blog Page Template do not seem to make any difference at all – even the exclude categories one.

    Did you add a category “name” in the “Exclude the following Category IDs” or did you use the Category ID “number”.

    Hi,

    I used the category ID number. Should I use the name instead?

    Thanks

    No, the number. Take a look at Brad’s tutorial here – http://wpsites.net/web-design/exclude-category-posts-page/. See if this will help you.

    That’s what I would expect. I’ll have a look at the tutorial, thanks.

    I’ve had a look and only one of those solutions works.

    It’s a bit frustrating as I didn’t want to spend so much time trying to sort something that should have just worked as it’s a key part of the framework.

    Appreciate you trying to help.

    Timbarry, do you have a post page selected under Settings -> Reading? If so, try unselecting it. Sometimes that can override the Genesis settings.

    Since you are using a custom child theme, can you share what your functions.php file? Did you build the custom child theme off of a another child theme?

    Hi Anitac,

    Thanks for the replies.

    It’s working now. Just using the options in the Genesis settings > Blog page template > Display which category – set to news. Left the others blank.

    My only other preference would be to have a different sidebar for different single templates, but this is not a big one.

    Tim
