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.http://theeyesite.info/blog/
Did you add a category “name” in the “Exclude the following Category IDs” or did you use the Category ID “number”.
I used the category ID number. Should I use the name instead?
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?
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.
