How to exclude a category from the Mobile Theme

If you’ve ever wanted to exclude a particular category of posts from being displayed by Jetpack’s Mobile Theme, you can use the following code in your theme’s functions.php or in a functionality plugin:

// Check if we are on mobile
function jetpackme_is_mobile() {
 
    // Are Jetpack Mobile functions available?
    if ( ! function_exists( 'jetpack_is_mobile' ) )
        return false;
 
    // Is Mobile theme showing?
    if ( isset( $_COOKIE['akm_mobile'] ) && $_COOKIE['akm_mobile'] == 'false' )
        return false;
 
    return jetpack_is_mobile();
}
 
// Modify the main query on the home page for the mobile theme.
function jetpackme_modify_main_query( $arg ) {
    if ( jetpackme_is_mobile() && is_home() ) {
         $arg -> set( 'cat', '-1' );
    }
}
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'jetpackme_modify_main_query' );

You would need to replace the 1 in

$arg -> set( 'cat', '-1' );

with the ID of the category you want to exclude.
