Install Category Exlude plugin
A member has requested that we add a plugin that will exclude certain categories from the front page of a blog. She noted these two on the repo, though she hasn't used or tested either one:
Front Page Category
I seem to remember one called "Category Exclude."
I told her that this would be included in the next site update.
After uploading the ticket, I would like to email her to tell her that the plugin is installed, so please don't close the ticket until I have had a chance to do so.
