Comments on: Exclude Category from WordPress RSS Feed Brain Food for Web Developers Thu, 19 Dec 2013 23:01:30 +0000 hourly 1 By: Graham Mon, 10 Sep 2012 19:32:36 +0000 Hi Dave,
Excellent question. WordPress doesn’t make it very obvious what the category ID is. One of the easiest ways to find it is to login to your dashboard and click on Posts > Categories > [Your Category]. Look at the URL in your address bar and you should see something like: ‘edit-tags.php?action=edit&taxonomy=category&tag_ID=12&post_type=post’.
The part that says tag_ID=12 (may also be cat_ID=12) tells us the category ID.
I believe you can also install a plugin to display IDs in the admin area:
I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions, I’d be glad to help.

You can find the functions.php file in your theme directory:
[Wordpress root] > wp-content > themes > [current theme] > functions.php
I hope this is useful. Let me know if you have any more questions.
