    Please have a look at this screen shot..
    Is there a way to do this..?

    I read online that could do this..

    There are two tables where WP stores the relationships of categories to posts. These are “wp_term_relationships” and “wp_term_taxonomy”. You can find the ID of the “uncategorized” (probably “1”) in the table “wp_terms”. Then you need only a “delete from ‘wp_term_relationships’ where ‘term_taxonomy_id’=ID_YOU_FOUND” and than “delete from ‘wp_term_taxonomy’ where ‘term_taxonomy_id’=ID_YOU_FOUND”.

    But I hope there’s a better way.
    Please advise on this.

    PS: Thanks for the great search plugin.

    Hello!

    Open up the administrator panel of the ajax search pro. On the “Frontend Search Settings” tab there is an option to exclude categories. Drag the uncategorized to the right column and save the search.
    It should do the trick.

    I don’t see “Uncategorized” in the left column..
    This is what I am finding in the back end area
