    if your going to continuously get new authors just make up a how to guide with screen captures and arrows drawn on it pointing to stuff explaining it. Its the easiest way to get your authors on track. As for editing that, you will need to find that in the wp file for the editor.

    Add the following lines to your WordPress Theme's template functions.php file (For example, functions.php file for a Theme named "default" would probably reside in the directory wp-content/themes/default/functions.php) or create it as a Plugin by filling the additional Standard Plugin Information:

    function exclude_category() {
    	if ( is_feed() ) {
    		set_query_var('cat', '-5');
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'exclude_category');
    The code example above is for excluding category ID 5 from feed.
