Restricting display of category discussions on main page

I was wondering if there is a way to restrict new discussions created in a category from displaying on the main page/recent discussions?

I am going to be making an "advertisement category/forum" but do not want its new threads to appear on the main page.

Thank you.

    1. Go to your dashboard
    2. Click on Categories in left sidebar
    3. Choose your categorie and click "edit"
    4. Check "Hide from the recent discussions page."

    If you want to hide only that category also in de Categorylist in the sidepanel, hide it with css:
    Look in the console which class is added to that specific category and add this somewhere in your stylesheet:

    li.ClearFix.Depth1.Category-xxx {
        display: none;
