Blog listing exclude category tag

Note: You can add multiple categories or tags together. 

You can exclude posts by category or tags separately or use both together. However, it is important to note that when using both, a post must match both conditions to be excluded from the list.

For example, let’s say you have selected “Clothing” as the category in the Exclude Category field and “Yellow” as a tag in the Exclude Tags field. In order for a post to be excluded, it must belong to the clothing category and have the yellow tag.

Note: It works in the same way when you include posts from categories and tags together.
