You can remove a category from the search results by adding the following code to your functions.php file. If you want to remove another category, simply change the value at “terms”.

),
);$query->set( 'tax_query', $tax_query );
}

}add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'arrow_design_hide_rentals_from_search_pre_get_posts');
