I just set it to inactive, and it seemed to work…
Works good if you are trying to use a hidden category for the homepage…

thanks, but for sure? all products from this category are shown even if it’s inactive? i would like to categorize some products in BE categories but only want to link at them through the “shop by” box. i’ll test it out now, thanks again and greetings from germany

It would seem a simple category level switch would solve problem: “Exclude from Navigation”

If the parent is at the same level of root, then it should be excluded.
