With the help of WordPress plugin, you do not necessary need to have that coding skill. But using too much might kill your blog speed and your blog might eventually be put down due to excess usage of your bandwidth.

On our today’s post, we shall be discussing how to disable a particular category from appearing on your WordPress front page
At time there are some category(s) in our blog that we just don’t want to show on our front page. Like on this blog, I have a category based on pure hacking but I do not allow any update on that category to appear on my blog front page.
