I have done this before but for some reason, it is not working and I can't figure out why. All I am trying to do is exclude some categories from the blog page. I thought this would be a simple matter. I have the index.php file open, and before my loop, I did this
query_posts( $guery_string . '&cat=-6' ) if (have_posts)......rest of loop here.
I have even tried adding the global $query_string; on top but nothing I do will get rid of category 6. Does this method no longer work in the latest version of wordpress?
