Hide WordPress Post From Blog Feed, HomePage etc But Not In Sitemap

With WP Hide Post plugin for WordPress, you can hide any post from rss feed of your WordPress site thereby making it possible to publish blog posts which will not show up in your blog updates in feed readers nor delivered to your blog email newsletter subscribers but will be in your blog sitemap and searchable by search engines.

This is a must have plugin if your blog generates massive traffic from some keywords or posts which doesn’t really make sense to your blog readers. Hence, you will be able to build on your blog SEO using those keywords while you also publish quality content for your main blog readers.

In addition to hiding WordPress posts from feeds, WP Hide Post plugin also lets you control the visibility of a post in various different views which include : the front page, the category page, the tag page, the author page, the archive page and the search results. It can also hide any post from WordPress native recent posts widget and from next/previous rel link.

So, with WP Hide Post WordPress plugin you can now create content that you otherwise would be reluctant to add to your blog because it would show immediately on the front page, or somewhere else where it would not belong.

How To Use WP Hide Post Plugin

Once you install and activate the WP Hide Post plugin, you will see “Post Visibility” option below each post editor as screen in the screenshot below:

  1. Hello Jide, thanks for sharing about this plugin. Is there any plugin that can stop WordPress from sending emails only to my subscribers anytime I publish a new post? I don’t like the idea of sending irrelevant posts to all subscribers upon clicking publish.

  2. Why not use the wordpress function that only call specific categories to the front page…. Too much plugin is not OK.
    Add this code to your function.php why change those numbers from 142 to 664 to ur categories ID
    THAT IS WHAT I USE ON schols.com.ng
    // Exclude Category Posts from Home Page
    function themeprefix_exclude_category( $query ) {
    if ( $query->is_home() ) {
    $query->set( ‘cat’, ‘-142,-230-235,-176,-650,-228,-882, – 979,-240,-664’ );//add your category number
    return $query;
    add_action( ‘pre_get_posts’, ‘themeprefix_exclude_category’ );
