This is a Big Fat Test post to see about a couple of things:

Does it show up if I use the incognito tag?

How about if I use multiple tags?

Looks like the incognito category tag hides the category from any taxonomy listing. (WAIT – maybe not – the incognito category might show up in a taxonomy filter even though the posts don’t.  Might be a cache thing.  Might have to test more if it ever becomes important.) 

Looks like it hides the post from any archive pages.

Looks like it works to hide the post from the posts page even if the post has multiple category tags.

Here’s how it works:  add this to the bottom of the functions.php file in the child theme:

add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘child_enqueue_styles’, 15 );
function exclude_category_posts( $query ) {
if ( $query->is_home() && $query->is_main_query() ) {
$query->set( ‘cat’, ‘-22’ );
add_action( ‘pre_get_posts’, ‘exclude_category_posts’ );
add_filter( ‘auto_update_plugin’, ‘__return_false’ );

Guess I should paste this in a doc in my WSL folder so I can find it by searching “incognito” – for when I get rid of the astra theme and lose that child theme file.
