Exclude specific category from Search Results in Wordpress

/ Published in: PHP
Save to your folder(s)

Found this bit of code all over the place, except it missed out a very crucial part of the code which was to add a "-" in front of the ID you wish to exclude. Add this to functions.php in your theme folder.

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. function SearchFilter($query)
  2. {
  3. if ($query->is_search)
  4. {
  5. $query->set('cat',-get_cat_ID('CategoryName'));
  6. }
  7. return $query;
  8. }
  9. add_filter('pre_get_posts','SearchFilter');
