Hi Brad

Found this through your answer on stackoverflow. Thanks for providing the snippet however I cannot get it to work. My category stays in the “woocommerce product categories widget”. I of course changed the category id. Could it be a change in Woo 2.2? I looked at the class-wc-widget-product-categories.php but couldn’t see any change. This file however is not in the new Woo 2.2 widget-product_categories.php

Appreciate any help you can provide.


Is possible to affect two sidebars? For example in sidebar 1 I have the widget and want to exclude 3 of 10 categories in sidebar 2 I have the same widget but I want to exclude only 1 category.
