A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how I learned to exclude WordPress categories from appearing on the main page and archives of my web site. I did this because I wanted to archive my tweets using the Twitter Tools digest feature. It mostly worked but I ran into a couple of problems with my code in that the category was still showing up in my list of recent posts. I still have not figured out how to correct that problem, although admittedly I haven’t spent much time working on it. As I mentioned, I discovered the Ultimate Category Excluder Plugin, which did the same thing I was trying to do via code.
Unfortunately, even though I learned a lot, this was an a futile exercise. Four days after setting this up, the Twitter Tools digest stopped posting. It worked wonderfully for four days and then nothing. I thought that perhaps there was a plugin conflict but I haven’t found any. I searched Google for solutions to this problem but found others having the problem but no real solution to it.
