Advanced Category Excluder (ACE) plugin for WordPress

For a couple of days I was looking for a plugin for my blog, that can hide some categories, form the front page. After I discovered, that I need to hide them as well from the RSS feeds. And after I’ve figured out that what I want a plugin that I can control categories to be displayed or hidden, in different parts of the blog.

For example I’m planning to write technical articles in english. But I’m writing my blog in hungarian… And maybe most of people who are reading my blog won’t be interested in such technical subject, but those who are using my blog’s RSS feed maybe interested in technical articles.

So I’ve written a plugin for WordPress that can solve the problem mentioned above.
This plugin was written from scratch, but it has been inspired by Front Page Excluded Categories Plugin by Sean O’steen and Jason York.
