Advanced Category Excluder 1.3 is here!

Add comments

Hey ๐Ÿ˜‰

The next version of ACE has just came out. It contains main improvements, accodring to user requests, and it works with WordPress 2.7. Well, nothing serious changed in the new WordPress release that would prevent ACE to work as epected, but it sounds great anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰

First of all, you’ll notice a new option in the options tab. With this option you can set, if you only want to enble exclusion in the widgets. Of course it will have NO affect, if you are not using our bundeled widgets ๐Ÿ™‚

Another brand new stuff will be in the sections. You’ll find a Disable robots section. If you check this, every post in the selected category will be hidden from web crawlers, even if All in One SEO pack is installed ๐Ÿ˜‰

There are some improvements as well. You’ll notice, that now widgets works more than perfectly. Let’s say you are at your home page, and you have excluded a category from the front, and also from the widgets. You won’t see any comment to any post in that category, even if you go deeper, into the blog. But if you are listing that categories posts, our you are watching a post that is in that excluded category, suddenly your recent comments, and recent posts widgets will show you the entries related to those categories. Cute, huh? ๐Ÿ™‚

I want to say a special thank you for those of you, who have contributed to this release, with translation, idea, helped people in my project blog, or with patch/code.

You are:

  • Aaron D. Campbell
  • Jean-Michel MEYER
  • Mikael Jorhult
  • philtre
  • costela

And finally I want to thank you for your donations, that makes me feel proud. Not because of the value of the money I’ve received so far, but for the fact, that my work has value, and totally foreigners takes the time and the effort to transfer me money, and support this project.
Thank you very much.

    hello, got the plugin to exclude certain categories on the sidebar category widget on the homepage, but when i click on a post or page, the sidebar widget will still show ALL categories.. any help?

  2. Richie Says:

    I seem to have a problem which noone else has or possibly I’m missing something obvious…The plugin doesn’t appear in my dashboard at all after I activate it. It appears as a widget in the widget section but it is nowhere to be seen in the dashboard. Any ideas?

    First, I have to say. This is one of the best SEO plugin tools that exists on WordPress. The opportunity to create focused link groups and pure silo effects gives users a real edge when targeting keywords for search.

    However I have a small problem. I have 7 categories I want to exclude for my widget link. No matter what I try, I can only get the widget to exclude completely 4. In view ‘posts’ everything works fine, when I open a ‘Page’ I get 3 extra categories that I don’t want to display? If I change the categories I want to hide, I still get 3 extra categories, but this time different ones? Any ideas. Do I need to increase something?

    Please could we have an option to set/reverse order in the ACE Recent Posts widget.

    Many thanks

    I have the exact same problem as Andy Stevenson above. i am only able to hide 4 catagories and that’s it. this is a fantastic plugin!! Wondering if there’s a setting somewhere that I can change to allow more catagories to be hidden. Thanks.

    great tool…but i have not try it yet..i’ii try it and if i get some bugs i’ll tell you.thanks.

  7. Fry Says:

    Hey, Tina Cowden and Andy Stevenson – see Patrice’s comment (#17) for the fix. But, it was line 185 in my copy, not 189.

    Thanks for a great plugin! Now that it’s excluding all the categories, not just 4, it’s peachy.

    […] geht dies auch mit dem ACE Plugin von […]

  9. Four Pillars Says:

    This looks like exactly what I need. I want to exclude certain categories from going on the RSS feed.

    Problem is – I have the plugin installed but there is no “ACE” menu in my wordpress dashboard menu. Any ideas?

  10. Four Pillars Says:

    Just ignore the last comment – it was a permission problem.

  11. Silicon Gadget Says:

    I have the exact same problem of “Four Pillars” except I do not see any permission difference on the ACE plugin folder compared to any other plugins permissions (looking on ssh connection).

  12. Otis Kilmer Says:

    Hi, I was just wondering that when we scroll down to the end of the page on any WordPress home page and click the navigational link ‘Previous Posts’ and go to Page 2 from there, the excluded category posts are visible. So perhaps it just works on the page 1 or the front page. Any idea how to solve this.

    Thanks, Otis
