Request for new plugin: Frontpage category filter / Delete Hide Posts
On justpublics365.commons.gc.cuny.edu, we are trying to have all posts except one category go to the Blog feed. The short of it we want a News feed of press releases to be in News, and everything else in Blog. We could name everything Blog but there has to be a solution. I tried Hide Posts but it's 2yrs+ unupdated and no longer works so that it should be deleted. List Categories plugin also did not work. Pretty confident I did this correctly.
However, I found Frontpage category filter and installed it on my own site. It works perfectly. Please let me know if this can be installed.

I've got the plugin ready to push up for tonight's release, but I wanted to point out (before I push up) that we do have the Front Page Category widget already installed.
You and I discussed the use of this plugin in a previous issue: #655
Let me know if you still want me to add this plugin.

Thanks, Dom. A few notes:
-- In the other ticket, it's true that we discovered that this plugin didn't do what I thought it did (affect the front page categories), but that it did do what Jen needs it to do (affect the actual posts that appear on the front page). Hence, I think we should add it.
-- I'm confused: you say we have the widget installed; do we already have the plugin installed?

The confusion stems from the fact that we're talking about two plugins with almost the exact same name.
We currently have a plugin installed called Front Page Category
This ticket is requesting a plugin called Frontpage category filter
I'm wondering if the former will do what Jen wants before I add the latter.

- Target version changed from 1.4.12 to 1.4.13
Added a note to ACTION_REQUIRED to notify Jen that it's been installed and can be activated and tested.
Punting to 1.4.13 to give us time to test and resolve.

Thanks for the install. The github link goes to a 404.
Also, not seeing the new Frontpage Category Filter plugin on the Commons. I've tested the Front Page Category plugin in the past and it has not worked. Will test again though!
