I create posts that are used just to create an index item to show an existing post has been updated. The post I create 301 redirects to the updated post. I add these index posts to the category 'Update' and this excludes the posts from the previous and next post links via a plugin (I couldn't find any other way).
Problem is on the front page and archive pages the category each post is included in is displayed. I would like to exclude 'Update' category from these links as it is just for admin purposes.
Can I add something to my functions.php file which will prevent all links to the 'Update' category archive page being displayed?
Appreciate any guidance and apologies if this is covered already under a different term / search. I have looked.
