Show Only Category (Not Subcategory) Content

If you ever wanted to only show the content of the category you were on in the category view of WordPress (instead of the category you are on plus all of it’s subcategories – you can easily do so by adding the code below to the template that is used to show your category content

Put your title, content functions here

and where you normally see the call, put to close the additional (in_category) if statement.

This code gets the current category and then only displays categories that are in that category (not sub category)

This can be helpful if you want to not show a particular category in your blog (if you have a category based site setup) – or if you want to hide some categories from your search results.
