    Thanks for the post, it is very helpful. When i was trying to implement this on my site, after using the ace plugin for the excluding part, there is a warning displayed on my site,

    “Warning: mysql_get_server_info(): Access denied for user ‘nbibrands’@’localhost’ (using password: NO) in /home/nbibrands/public_html/academy/wp-content/plugins/advanced-category-excluder/advanced-category-excluder.php on line 128

    Warning: mysql_get_server_info(): A link to the server could not be established in /home/nbibrands/public_html/academy/wp-content/plugins/advanced-category-excluder/advanced-category-excluder.php on line 128”

    Please how can i go pass that?

      This is an old article. The plugin mentioned here hasn’t been updated. We will not recommend you to use that.
