When displaying your latest posts on the homepage, which am sure most bloggers do, you might want to exclude some post from displaying on your homepage.
While creating the post, you might have gotten totally confused as to how you’d get the post not to show on the homepage, as there is no setting for it on WordPress.
First of all, note that you’d have to create a category for all the post you don’t want to show on your homepage, and subsequently add similar post to this category.
Why on earth does one not want a post to show on homepage?
This is a common practice, and you are not alone (Leofirms has some categories hidden from homepage). There are many reasons why you would want to do this. You might want to keep your homepage for only news posts and relegate the rest of the posts to other sections accessed through the menu, or you just feel that category would misrepresent your site if its on the homepage.
There are numerous ways to go about this, and lots of technical bullshit. But hey, this is WordPress and there is always a Plugin for almost everything.
I have personally tested lots of plugins, and selected the easiest one for you to hide/remove a post category from your default homepage.
