re: I am hoping you have another undocumented shortcode so that I can hide the Locations category from displaying in that grid view?
Well, no, there is a documented shortcode option :) … it is compatible/works with the exclude_category shortcode option. I do not have this documented on the doc page for the Enhanced Categories extension because I assumed people would expect it to just work with the “core” shortcode options. Would it help if this was mentioned on the doc page as well?
Hope that helps!
ps. I made the edits to the post as requested and made it public.
pss. I’d like to post a backlink to your site on my showcase page when you are finished if that is alright.
