Select Categories on Blog Page
Is it possible to only show posts from select categories on the blog page? I have a category named "News". I don't need it to show up on the blog page.
I've looked at the code for page_blog.php but it didn't make sense to me. Category 1 is uncategorized on my site. I don't have any uncategorized posts. What I am looking to do is for the blog page to show every post except those from Cat=1, 3, 9, 21, 27. Any help is appreciated.
Also, why is the "more" tag not being read on the blog page? It's working fine on the home page.
