I am using the wp_get_categories in a navigation but there is one theme I want to block, I know I can exclude it by using the ID of it but I don’t want to tell people to edit a file to remove the category from the list.

I found a way to do it but doesn’t work

<?php  
 $id = get_cat_id('blog');  
 $q = "cat=" . $id;  
?>
and then to display the excluded category
 <?php wp_list_categories('orderby=name&title_li=&exclude=<?php echo $q ?>'); ?> 

But it shows up as No categories, instead of the list of categories!

Any ideas welcome

Try this:

 <?php wp_list_categories('orderby=name&title_li=&exclude='.$id); ?>

Yeah. You can’t have PHP tags within PHP tags.
