Exclude Posts – Update

OK – so after doing the update in order to exclude my weekly twitter digest, I noticed some problems. The main one was that the ‘Older Entries’ link didn’t work. I tried several variants, but the only way I could get them to work again was by deleting the exclude code I had put before the loop. So I deleted it.

I assumed that it was because the is_home() and is_front_page() conditional tags weren’t working properly, so I checked out the loop page again. And I found this example, which works exactly as I want it too. It doesn’t answer the questions of whether or not the conditional tags for home and front page actually work – as a matter of fact, even when you’re not on the homepage (front page) the posts from my tweets category still get filtered out. This is OK for me because that’s what I want to happen; however, if you want something to happen on the homepage (front page) only, I would look for another way.
