Did you remember my old post about excluding categories in WordPress recent posts widget? It is still one of the easiest methods to exclude categories in wordpress recent posts widget. But it needed some coding knowledge. Well.. I’ve developed a plugin for that purpose called Custom Recent Posts Widget. When activated, this plugin creates a widget for showing recent posts from certain categories in widgetized areas. (aka sidebars).
Download this plugin from official WordPress plugin repository.
Upadte: I’ve updated this plugin to show recent posts by tags as well. This option is available in version 2.0
